Weiss Lake Crappie Guides Fishing Report


May 10, 2018

CRAPPIE: The crappie fishing on Weiss Lake is beginning to slow down. We are now in the post pawn and the fish are starting to move back out to the deeper water. We have been catching some really nice stringers of crappie trolling jigs as well as shooting docks. We have had a lot of half day trips over the past few weeks and we have had stringers form 15 to 40. The trolling bite has been good early and then once the sun gets up around mid morning we move to the docks. This pattern should continue for awhile longer and then most of the fish will settle into their summertime pattern and will move out to the deeper water where they will stay until fall. We still have some dates open and now is a great time to learn the dock shooting technique. This is a super and fun way to put post spawn fish in your boat.  Remember there is a 10 inch size limit on crappie on Weiss Lake and the daily creel limit is 30 per person, per day!
