Conditions : Pickwick Lake: Pickwick Lake elevation: 414.17 ft. and is fairly stable at the time of this report. The bass bite is good for some, but the quality bite is proving hard to come by for some folks. Most fish weighed in are averaging in the 2-5lb range with very over 6lbs being caught. It took a whopping 29lbs to win a local club team tournament there this past Saturday. The summertime is definitely here and you can tell as the off shore humps and ledges are starting to get hit pretty hard by every bass fisherman hitting the lake. Anglers are using a variety of tactics and lures to trigger bites. Most are targeting water depths of about 15-25ft in depth. Not all ledges and humps are holding fish, so you may have to fish a few to finally find a school. The lack of current these past couple of weeks has not helped the bite. The catfish bite is fair to good right now, whether you are hand grabbing, trotlining, jug fishing or the just plain ole rod-n-reel fishing. The jug and rod-n-reel crowd are having very good success on strawberry flavored chicken and cut/whole shad. Anglers need to keep in mind that you may only keep one fish over 34 inches. Not many crappie anglers are braving the heat, but the ones that are, are targeting suspended fish in Yellow and Bear Creeks by trolling/drifting minnows and jigs in 20-30ft of water.
