Conditions : Pickwick Lake: Pickwick Lake elevation: 412.28 ft. and slowly falling as TVA continues their scheduled drawdown. The bass bite is picking up for numbers as the bass are leaving the ledges and humps in search of schools of shad along the flats, coves, and points. The numbers of fish being caught are starting to rise again but the quality bite can be tricky to find among the schools of 12-14 inch fish. Anglers have all but given up on the deep bite in hopes of finding some schools a bit shallower chasing the massive schools of shad. It took a whopping 27 lbs to win a team tournament there this past Saturday, but 17 lbs took 2nd. For those anglers choosing to chase the shallow fish, anglers are throwing flukes, swimbaits, spinnerbaits, topwater walkers and various other shad imitating baits. Reports of schooling action continue to roll in from all over the lake particularly around the hydrilla beds. The crappie anglers are starting to show up in fair numbers and some of the same areas as the bass anglers. Reports are coming in of crappie anglers targeting fish close to the grass beds along the middle and upper parts of the lake in Alabama. In Mississippi waters, target Yellow Creek, Dry Creek and Indian Creek. Both minnows and jigs will get you some bites. The catfish bite continues to be good in some areas right now. The jug and rod-n-reel crowd are having very good success on kool-aid flavored chicken and cut/whole shad and skipjack herring. The striper action below the dam continues to be good. Most are choosing to throw big swimbaits.
