Conditions : Pickwick Lake: Pickwick Lake elevation: 413.07 ft. at the time of this report and holding. TVA is running very little, if any current right now. The bass reports continue to be a bit slower than years past at this time, but a few quality fish are still being caught. It took 25.5 pounds to win a local team tournament there this past weekend. A lot of bass have moved out to the humps and ledges, while some fish are still in relatively shallow water around some of the shallower grass beds and sunken brushtops. If you plan on fishing the humps and ledges, you may have to move around a lot to find a school that is feeding. While fishing on the ledges, keep in mind that other fishermen are following the same pattern so be respectful to other anglers if you are sharing water. Several techniques will work for those deep fish. Big worms, crankbaits, Carolina-rigs, spoons and heavy jigs are all working as well as heavy slow rolled spinnerbaits and jig head rigged swimbaits. For those few fish that have remained shallow, crankbaits, spinnerbaits and topwater baits like spooks and buzzbaits will all catch fish. The night bite is starting to pick up as some quality smallmouth are being caught. Dark jigs and single bladed spinnerbaits are popular bait choices. The catfish bite is good if not great right now with spawn in full swing. Hand grabblers are starting to show up for flatheads as boat anglers are hitting the rock walls for spawning fish. Night crawlers and cut bait seems to be picking up the most fish, although in some areas, just about anything seems to be working. Look for a mayfly hatch soon as this will improve the bite. Anglers need to keep in mind that you may only keep one fish over 34 inches.
