Secrets of Lake Weiss Crappie Fishing

Winter fishing for crappie on Weiss Lake is fascinating. The fish will feed, but you will have to use the vertical drop method to get the fish. The crappie is moving slow during the winter months and they are inactive. You need to place the bait right into the zone so that they do not have to chase it. If you expect the fish to chase the bait during the cold winter months, you are not going to have many, if any, catches. If you use the right size bait and find the place where the fish are hold up, you will be able to drop and catch the crappie.

Get in the spring crappie fishing on Weiss Lake and enjoy the catch. The spawn has always been the time to find hoards of crappie in one area. One word of caution, the fish do become protective of the eggs. This means that if you find a fish guarding the nest, any bait you throw out is going to get a bite. They attack anything that comes close to the nest. If you do fish in the spring, you will want to look by the mouths of rivers and channels to catch the fish after spawning or while the fish are protecting the eggs.

In the end, crappie fishing on Weiss Lake presents some hazards if you are not aware. You should watch for other boaters and the signs that alert you to areas that may be unsafe for boating. There may be fish in those areas, but you just are not going to get those particular fish. You will enjoy the different seasons on the lake and the best time to fish is undoubtedly during the spring in the rivers and channels. Make your plans according to the lake reports, which come out daily to know where to go and what to do.
