  • Started in January 2014, Todd's Custom Lures was created to fill a desire to build my own lures and offer them to avid fishermen that are as crazy about it as I am. I hand-pour these lures and build them in my backyard shop. Other companies may offer similar services, but our services are the best, and come with a personal touch. I have since added my services as a guide on world famous Weiss Lake "Crappie Capital of the World" and provide lasting memories of chasing bass, crappie and striper. Give me a call or email and let me show you what Weiss Lake has to offer!

    I stayed extremely shallow and fished around the shad! Ended up catching 12 bass and a striper with the largest going 6.25 pounds. Had the best luck on my 3/8oz coosa river killer colored spinnerbait with the bigger fish. Also caught fish crawling a 1/2oz lipless Crankbait in sexy shad and a 2.5 squarebill Crankbait. These are my go to baits this time of year and they hardly ever disappoint. Probably could have caught some on a topwater lure as they were busting everywhere, but I didn't take the time to get it out with the luck I was having on the spinnerbait.

    Caught this 5 pounder on a lipless Crankbait:
