There are miles of channel ledges marked on Weiss
Lake with markers on both the up stream and down streamside of the lake.
I can tell you this from Bay Springs all the way up to Sand
Valley has always produced fall slab-sized crappie.
The most important
part of this technique is being able to find structure on these ledges, there is no use in fishing a section of ledge that
doesnt have some type of structure. Most of the structure on these ledges will be found in 10 to 14 feet of water with
the lake down at winter level, so this will give you a good starting point on your search for these paper mouth beauties.
One last thing about Bottom Bumping, when you think you are going slow working the ledge you need to slow
down even more, it should take about hour and half to work a 100 yard stretch of ledge.
Fall fishing on Weiss is underrated and overlooked sometimes and to me is one of the best times to be on the water. So
if you get an itch to cure those summertime blues get into a cooler full of line stretching slabs and you'll see what I mean...
