Weiss Lake 9/22/2015by Todd on 09/22/15
Weather started out cloudy but ended up mostly sunny with temps in the low 80's.
Water temp hovered around 76 degrees for this trip.
Was able to get out on Weiss today from about 10a til 3:30p. The wind was steady around 7 mph which caused a slight stain. With fall temps approaching and Weiss steadily dropping towards winter pool, I decided to stay up shallow and was able to catch a few good ones. And when I say shallow, I mean throw on dry land and drag your lure into the water shallow. I stuck mostly with my 3/8 oz spinnerbait in my Coosa River Killer color (crappie pattern), but I did the most damage with a 2.5 squarebill Crankbait in shady areas using a custom color I wanted to try out. Biggest bass was around 3 lbs. Was surprisingly a slower day, but it beats work!
I did move out to the 8-9' mark for a few casts just to try out another of my custom colors, but decided to call it quits and let the wind have it there at the end.
Fall colors, temps and sore fish catching muscles are just around the corner. Give me a shout and we'll see what Weiss offers.
