Have any of ya'll fished Weiss lake lately? Whats the water like? How are the bass doing? Are they bedding? Where are they stageing? What is the weed cover like? What is the Forage? Anybody? Anything?

Thanks Fellows,

Peter

Hey Peter, me again. I fished a BFL there two weeks ago. The fish had not moved up then, but it could have changed since then. The nearby water I fished this weekend was 62 degrees so Weiss so be close to that or warmer. It was very stained when I was there and we just had a lot of rain so it may stained again.

There are tons of docks and lots of wood to throw to .

As for as forage that lake is packed with shad, I don't recall seeing that much bait anywhere. The threadfin shad are about 3 inches long right now.

We caught fish on blades, rigs and got a few good jig bites.

What little grass is there on the shore was barely in the water but may covered better  by now.

Its pretty good. Love the articles and interviews! I think our teams are looking good for the tournament. We've got a game plan ready to go. Auburn spoke good about you. They said you are full of ideas.

Ha always. I would say let's wait about a month longer but thats never stopped us before. I have two more weeks of tournaments before I can say I'm free but I could sure use a strong Spot on the other end of my line. The tournament went alright. it was a small thing. small lake, small fish, small lures, small total weight. But it was for the school so it didn't bother me. We finished 3rd if that means anything.

We havent heard anything yet about pairings. Im sure Jann will do something like he did at wheeler...he did the drawings at the meeting but kept getting them mixed up with the second day pairs...which was pretty funny...It doesnt really matter who we fish against its all gonna come down to finding the quality fish and changing with the conditions!!

Pete you missed a good one. Tough conditions dominated out there. You'd never believe who Troy was against GSU of all teams. lol I expect to see you at the next tournament at Wilson so start getting ready for that. Cobb it was great to meet you and your team and it was a pleasure to compete  against yall. Yall have a good team, which out a doubt. I saw something about yall are putting on an invitational at some time. Can we get some information about that?

Pete dont believe anyhing ole Mottfia says!! haha you didnt miss much fishin!! Gah was it tough out there or what?? Justin, it was a pleasure fishing against yall...and congrats again on the victory...

We are tryin to put on an invitational sometime soon...we were thinkin about sometime is July but after talking with the guys there is no way to have it all ready by then...we are looking at moving it to September or October...We will keep yall updated...

I dont believe we are gonna make it to Wilson. I know Jay is gonna go for that meeting that Jann was talking about but im not sure if we are gonna have the funding to get out there this time...

Yall take it easy,

Kyle

did you guys find any beds down there? i talked to some Georgia bulldog boys who said they were fishing beds on Friday, but i never saw one bed all weekend. i figured since one of the fish i caught on Friday had a really red tail maybe most of them were in post spawn already? that was definitely tougher fishing than i had in mind. good seeing y'all down there see some of you out Wilson if i can make it down for it. tight lines -mike (vt fishing team) any you guys pull some striper out? i thought i had a nice bass on Saturday only to pull up a striper.

Well Kyle, Dale (Justin) knows me and he knows that I love tough conditions. Either way I hate that I missed the tournament. I am having trouble getting help from club members in getting things done with me. It is still a one man show running things down here. Hopefully that will change soon enough. We'll be up at the next one though. I know that for sure. And as for your invitational, looking forward to it. Looking forward to fishing with ya'll soon enough.

Mike...We found one bass on bed but he was about 8 inches...there was a female that was a nice size but we kept spookin her in that clear water headed up the little river but other than that there was nothing. I caught one saturday that was bloody and beat up from nose to tail...we caught plenty of striper though...We also caught about a 15 lb carp and our other boat caught a 40 lb cat fish on a rat L trap.

Pete...I know how it feels to be the only one wanting to do anything for the club...been there done that...just keep pushing through...start a group on facebook and send it out to all your friends at your school and they may tell other people about it...thats really how we got off the ground with guys wanting to help out just as much as a you do!! good luck with it man!! let me know if I can help with anything!!

Mike we caught a few bass that looked like they had been cleaning a bed and we saw a few beds but never both. Its probably because we tried to focus on dirtier water. I felt like we'd have a better chance away from that gin water. One of our guys heard Jann talking about auburn was going to sight fish. Apparently they did it good enough. lol My partner caught a couple of real nice stripes at the end of our practice day.

Pete I've told you before and I'll tell you again. If me you and Swindle were at the same college, things would be alot different. but you may get lucky and get the swindler down there next semester. Yall could have a tough team. We need to work on a third team up here. We don't have the experience as of yet in that third spot so we've got a ways to go to hit the top.

I know how you feel there Dale, We have two good teams and perhaps three even, but to be honest their all untested. The biggest thing would be for me to have a boat.
