The cooler nights the past few weeks has cooled the water a a lot, and put some oxygen back in, a lot of Bass have moved shallow, and the Crappie are biting Great.
Bass fishing is Good and most fish have moved shallow on secondary point, sand bars and humps, and they are being caught on Rat L Traps, shallow running flat sided Crank Baits ands Spinner Baits, and jigs. The Spotted Bass are biting great in the upper Coosa River near Riverside Camp Ground, they are chasing Shad on the edges of the old river channel and they mouth of any cove.20 plus pound stringers have been winning the tournaments all year, The Bass fishing on Weiss Lake, rivals Lake Guntersville for the last 2 years.
Crappie fishing is Great and most fish are on the main Coosa River channel ledges, in 12-16 feet of water on cover, and they can be caught spider rigging with live minnows, fished 2-4 feet above the bottom on a drop shot rig. Some fish are being caught under docks in the main lake, shooting jigs, a 1/24 ounce Jiffy Jig in colors JJ13 and JJ17 is working great.
Striper fishing is Poor and there have been no reports of any catches in the last few weeks. Look for the Stripers to turn on again in late November or early December.
Catfish are biting good in the flats on cut bait.
