Bass fishing is Good. The bass are shallow in the the middle stages of spawning. Some bass are still cruising the banks and most are spawning. Floating worms, Jerk Baits and Texas rigged Lizards and Worms fished around shallow cover and sea walls is producing some good catches. Look for shallow shaded sea walls and rocky banks with over hanging cover or shade.
Crappie fishing is Great. The Crappie are shallow and in the late stages of spawning. The fish are on the banks in the mid to lower lake, casting a Jiffy Jig in color JJ17 to rocky banks and under docks is working awesome right now. In the upper lake the fish are in 3-5 feet of water in the back of the spawning bays, Trolling a Jiffy Jig in 1/24 ounce in colors JJ13 and JJ17 will produce some hot action. Fishing shallow brush piles with minnows is always a great way to catch fish during the spawn here on Weiss lake. Cowan Creek is still producing some good catches trolling 1/16th ounce Jiffy Jigs in 7-10 feet of water. Bumping bottom with minnows in Little River and the Chattooga River is producing some good catches also.
Come on over to Weiss Lake Alabama and get in on some of the awesome fishing that earned this lake the name, The Crappie Capital of the World !
Striper fishing is Good The stripers have started moving up the Coosa river to make their spawning run. Fishing cut bait on the bottom in the Coosa River behind Plant Hammond has always been a great producer in February and early march. The stripers will then move up behind the Lock and Dam in Rome Georgia, waiting for the water to rise enough for them to go over and on up the Etowah and Oostanaula Rivers to spawn.
Catfish are biting Good. Jug fishing in the bays of the main lake is a sure way to load the boats with some nice fish, The docks at JR's Marina is producing some good fish also. Use cut bait, whole crappie heads or any kind of stink bait.
