Conditions : Pickwick Lake: ?Pickwick Lake elevation: 411.82 ft. and quickly rising at the time of this report. According to TVA, the lake will be at full pull by this Wednesday, April 15. For bass, the winning tournament weights have dropped off some probably due to the spawn. But the 20-23lb range has been winning most weekend tournaments. Catching numbers of bass is not the problem, but finding the quality bites have proven to be tough to come by for some, but two fish over 9lbs were weighed in this past Saturday. Look for fish to be in all stages of the spawn throughout the rest of the month. Power techniques like spinnerbaits, swimbaits and jigs are catching decent numbers on transition areas like shallow points and creek runs. Other anglers are using T-rigged and C-rigged plastics fish in those same areas or a bit shallower. Points and shallow drop-offs leading into spawning areas seem to be where most of the bass are holding. Look for transition areas like creek channels and ditches to continue to hold fish until the spawn in over. The crappie bite is still as good as multitudes of anglers are hitting the water. Mills Creek, Goat Island and Yellow Creek continue to be hot spots as anglers are loading the boat drifting/trolling jigs and casting jigs/roadrunners for suspended fish they found using their electronics. Anglers are targeting 5-12ft of water. The hot jig color(s) last week were red/chartreuse and blue/chartreuse. For catfish, a few anglers had some success using redworms and nightcrawlers in 15-20ft of water. Catch rates were relatively high but size was a bit on the small side.
