  • 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!

  • Weiss Lake Crappie 2-20-2017

    Crappie fishing is great on Weiss as usual this time of year.

    The water is warming up and crappie are eating! The weatherman called for a 77 degree high today, not sure we made it there.


    Most anglers are bunched up tighter than the fish in the Little River and Little Spring Creek areas. People really need to be careful and considerate out on the water! Decided to get away from the masses and try out Bay Springs Marina area and we werenít the only ones, of course. There were about 30 boats about daybreak but we were catching Crappie for sure! Once the congestion of boats started thinning out, we really started catching the Crappie long line trolling 1/16oz crappie jigs. Our best producing baits were 2 inch curly tails in black/chartreuse, blue/chartreuse and black and red/chartreuse tail.

    Late in the day, made a move to Yellow Creek area and trolled on the Chestnut Bay Resort side and caught the biggest Crappie of the day, then my fishermen wanted to see what Little River was all about, so we made the jump over and there were still many, MANY boats in the area even late in the day. Only managed one fish in the hour we spent in Little River.

    All in all it was a beautiful day for trolling up Crappie on Weiss Lake!

    Use a Wading Staff When Fishing Dangerous Currents

    Those of us who wade rocky streams for smallmouth or tailwaters for trout sometimes bite off more than we can chew.
