Conditions : Pickwick Lake: Pickwick Lake elevation: 413.78 ft. and relatively holding at the time of this report. The bass bite has toughened up over the weekend for most anglers, but one angler managed to boat a 11.65 lb lunker this past Saturday near J.P. Coleman State Park. It only took a little over 16 pounds to win the Oxford bass club tournament this past Saturday. Anglers are struggling to find a consistent pattern as most of the fish are in that transition phase. A few reports are coming in from anglers catching fish off the bed in the backs of pockets. The spawn seems to be starting up which is making anglers to slow down and fish spawning areas more thoroughly with either T-rigged plastics or jigs. Spinnerbaits, senkos, and crankbaits are catching a few fish cruising the banks. Some anglers have resorted to using shakeyheads to catch some of these fish. The crappie bite is tough right now. Anglers are catching a few quality fish, but the numbers are down a bit this spring. Mills Creek, Goat Island and Yellow Creek continue to be hot spots like most years. Anglers are targeting 5 - 12 ft of water by trolling, casting and vertically presenting jigs. The catfish bite has turned on a bit this past weekend. Anglers are catching quality fish that are feeding up before the spawn starts next month. Several quality flatheads are being caught on the lake and below the dam. Cut skipjack has been the best bait, but some bass anglers are catching flatheads on bass plugs.
