Weiss Lake Crappie Guides Fishing Report


April 13, 2017

CRAPPIE:  Crappie fishing is fantastic!! The crappie are in the middle of the spawn right now on Weiss Lake but the fishing is still fantastic. We have been out this week with several groups and had super catches. Earlier in the week we had a group that had 57 keepers and then today we had a group of four from Georgia that finished with a limit catch of 120 crappie! We are catching a lot of females that have already spawned but we still pick up some that have not laid out. The crappie will spawn in waves so even if some are shallow there will still be some out in the deeper water waiting to move in. So you can catch fish trolling, shooting docks as well as casting a jig under a float. The fishing should continue to be good as we go through April and into May. Now is an excellent time to set up a trip to shoot docks. If you enjoy this technique or want to learn it, now is the time to get on the water! It is a super technique to use in post-spawn conditions. We still have a few dates available so if your interested in a trip give me a call and we will see if we have a date that will work with your schedule. Remember there is a 10 inch size limit on crappie on Weiss Lake and the daily creel limit is 30 per person, per day! See Ya' on the Water!
