10-18-2015 Weiss Lake Alabama
Water temp around 67 degrees and windy conditions.
Weiss Lake is showing the draw down toward winter pool for sure and the brush piles are everywhere. With the cooler water temps, lower water and more shad in 3-5 ft of water than I've seen so far...the bite is on! Only got to spend a couple hours on the water this evening and came off the water just before dark. But it was a very productive couple of hours.
I stayed extremely shallow and fished around the shad! Ended up catching 12 bass and a striper with the largest going 6.25 pounds. Had the best luck on my 3/8oz coosa river killer colored spinnerbait with the bigger fish. Also caught fish crawling a 1/2oz lipless Crankbait in sexy shad and a 2.5 squarebill Crankbait. These are my go to baits this time of year and they hardly ever disappoint. Probably could have caught some on a topwater lure as they were busting everywhere, but I didn't take the time to get it out with the luck I was having on the spinnerbait.
Caught this 5 pounder on a lipless Crankbait:
The Fall FRENZY is here! Get outta work and lets go FISHING!!!!
