Bass fishing is good  Most Large Mouth have moved shallow following the shad with the falling water temperature.  Some fish are still deep in the main lake. I have been seeing some spotted bass surface action early in the morning on the old Coosa river channel near Yellow Creek A shallow running crank bait like the new Gizz 4 crank bait from Smack Tackle  www.smacktackle.com is working awesome right now ! It is the best shad imitation crank bait I have ever used ! This is a new bait and I caught fish on it the first time I used it, Spotted Bass, Largemouth and Stripers love them! Look for schools of shad in the back of the bays and creeks. Working a flat sided crank bait in the areas where the shad are present will produce some good stringers of bass.
Use  All Pro Rod APX Series   www.allprorods.com The Finest Fishing Rods Available Today !
To keep your catch ALIVE  for the weigh in make sure you use a Keep Alive Oxygen Infuso2r Aeration system www.keepalive.net
 
 
 
Crappie fishing is great. The crappie have started biting great on minnows on the old Coosa river channel drops using minnows and a bottom bouncing rig.Alot of 60 fish limits have been coming in this week using this technique. Tie a 1/2 or 3/4 ounce bell sinker on your main line then come up 16 inches and tie a eagle claw size 1 snelled aberdeen hook on the line, then drop this rig to the bottom and bring it back up one crank of your reel off the bottom.  Fish the dropoffs of the old river channels and look for any structure on the drop and work the structure slowly with your trolling motor. Target the 12-16 feet range in the Coosa river channel from the mouth of Bay Springs cove, upriver to the causeway at Cedar Bluff.  Use a quality All Pro spinning rod in 5 or 6 foot length with a medium action .
 
Striper fishing is  poor with the fast falling water level the fish have moved from their summer haunts in the major creeks and rivers. Most fish are in the main lake and they are moving around alot right now and no one pattern is working well. A few weeks and cooler water and they should  be on a predictable pattern again.
The White Bass and Yellow Bass are schooling on top early and late in the main lake, look for flats near the old river channel near Yellow Creek. Use a White or Yellow Rooster Tail or a Little George for lots of action.
Use a All Pro Rods Striper Special APX series.   www.allprorods.com The Finest Fishing Rods Available Today !
To keep your live bait Alive make sure to use a Keep Alive Bait Tank and Oxygen Infuso2r Aeration System www.keepalive.net
 
Catfish are biting great. The catfish are biting all over the lake and they are being caught by jug fishermen and people fishing off of docks are really catching alot of fish on Chicken livers and night crawlers, use cut shad or live bream for the bigger fish and fish the main coosa river below the big bridge in Cedar Bluff.

LAKE WEISS IS DOWN 3.6 FEET  STAINED AND 85 DEGREES

Bass fishing is good  The bass have started to move shallow. With the rain the last couple of weeks it has put some oxygen  back in the water and made the fish more aggressive. The shad have moved shallow and the bass are feeding on them.  Some fish are still deep in the main lake. A shallow running crank bait like the new Gizz 4 crank bait from Smack Tackle  www.smacktackle.com is working awesome right now ! It is the best shad imitation crank bait I have ever used ! This is a new bait and I caught fish on it the first time I used it, Spotted Bass and Stripers love them! Look for schools of shad in the back of the bays and creeks. Working a flat sided crank bait in the areas where the shad are present will produce some good stringers of bass.

Striper fishing is  fair and the stripers are in the Cave Hole in Little river. Some fish have started to move back to the river channels in the main lake  Use live shad on a down line 8 to 10 feet deep and flat lines are producing well. Look for the schools of stripers on your fish finder and adjust your bait depth to get it a foot or so above them. 
The new GIZZ 4 crank bait is working awesome also right now! On a trip sunday afternoon it out fished live bait 4 to 1 ! It is the most realistic shad imatation bait I have ever used, Stripers love them and so will you ! www.smacktackle.com
Check them out on the web!

Bass fishing is poor  With the lack of rain and high water temperature, the result is very low oxygen levels in the lake which makes the Bass very lazy. The best patterns right now are deep river channel ledges in the main lake that have 10 feet of water or more on top. Use Large crankbaits like a DD22 or a DD14. Creature baits like the Zoom Brush Hog in june bug fished on a carolina rig is producing some fish. The upper part of the Chattooga River is holding alot of Spotted Bass with a few Largemouths. The Shad have moved to the Chattooga River in huge schools for the cooler water with more oxygen. The best baits are shallow to medium running crankbaits in chartreuse or a shad pattern. Spinner baits are also producing fair in the Chattooga River. A  3/8 ounce Oldham spinner bait in chartreuse and white or solid white with double willow blades in chrome and gold is my bait of choice.
The new Gizz 4 crank bait from Smack Tackle www.smacktackle.com is the best shad imatation crank bait I have ever used ! This a new bait and I caught fish on them the first time I used them,Spotted Bass and Stripers love them!

Striper fishing is  fair and the stripers are in the Cave Hole in Little river, Alot of  fish are moving back into the Chattooga river and Little Spring creek looking for cooler moving  water with more oxygen, night fishing has started to pick up with some good catches from 11:00 pm - 4:00 am. With the low oxygen levels expect the best fishing very early  am and late pm.  Fish the upper Chattooga river and Little river and Little Spring creek.  Use live shad on a down line 8 to 10 feet deep and flat lines are producing well. Look for the schools of stripers on your fish finder and adjust your bait depth to get it a foot or so above them.
