The Weiss Lake Improvement Association along with Alabama Power and students from the Cedar Bluff High School Fishing Team have once again partnered together to deploy a large number of fish attraction devices into Weiss Lake to enhance the fish habitat in the lake at Pruitt’s Fish Camp on Friday.
We spoke to local fishing guide Marc Collins who told us more about the program:
The high school anglers teamed up with several local fishing guides to construct the fish attraction devices by using bamboo and placing them in concrete blocks filled with mortar and after drying those devices were then loaded onto Alabama Power Boats and placed in strategic locations in the lake near Pruitt’s Fish Camp.
Collins said that the biggest advantage of these devices is that it will enable the smaller fish to hide from predators such as birds and other fish and will improve the overall ecology of the lake.
Each of the spots where the fish attraction devices are employed are recorded by GPS and can be found by following apcshorelines.com
