Big Slabs in Wind and Rain on Weiss Lake.
April 6, 2015
This week the weather here on Weiss Lake in Alabama has been constantly changing and challenging. With high winds, rain, and changing temperatures the Crappie aren’t sure what to do. They are wanting to spawn but with all the weather changes they are pulled out to the first deeper water they can find near spawning areas. Not to say they can’t be caught, they still need to feed to get ready to spawn and we have had some good success using some of the same tactics we have used the past month.
We are long line trolling with 6 pound Gamma Hi Vis fishing line with a Bobby Garland 1/24th ounce Mo-Glo head, still using either orange or pink. The key colors on the back end have been the Bobby Garland Slab Slay’R in Monkey Milk. We have also used the Bobby Garland Baby Shad Swimmer in either Blue Ice or Blue Grass. Keep a close eye on your electronics and find the bait fish in deeper water around ditches and humps near spawning areas as I said earlier. Don’t let this weather keep you off the water, we are still filling our live wells with big limits. Give me a call if you want to join in on the action, 256-390-4145 or check out my web site at www.weisslakecrappieguidealabama.com. Be safe and I’ll see you on the water!
