    Todd's Custom Lures and Guide Service

  • 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 3-16-2017

    Hit the water today and it was COLD! The day started out around 18 degrees at daybreak and warmed up slowly with the wind blowing.

    The Crappie were slow to bite today. Started out trolling 1/16oz jigs in church house only picking up 4-5 keepers. If you like yellow bass, this was the place to be! After a while, jumped to yellow creek thinking the water would clear up but it was still dingy. Had to add split shot to the line to keep the baits down in the wind. Our best colors today were black with chartreuse tails.

    The other
    40 boats in yellow creek weren't doing much better, but with warmer temps on the horizon, things should get back to being hot again. There have been a few tagged fish showing up across the lake so get your badge and get on the water!
