Conditions : Pickwick Lake: Pickwick Lake elevation: 413.85 ft. and rising. The bass action has significantly gotten tougher at least out deep toward the ledges. More and more action is occurring along the grass lines in 4-8 ft deep as the shad are starting to use the hydrilla. Finding fish on the deep ledges is not as much an issue as getting those fish to bite. They’ve been harassed all summer long with just about ever lure known to man, so getting them to bite can be a tricky ordeal. C-rigs and T-rigs are still the go to techniques for the deepwater bite however alternative finesse techniques like a shakeyhead and dropshot are working as well. For the grass bite, most anglers are throwing flukes, frogs, topwater baits, lipless crankbaits and swimbaits with all having some success. A lot of schooling action is happening around the edges of the topped out grass. Topwater lures and other shad imitating baits are good for these fish. The catfish bite is fair to good right now. The jug and rod-n-reel crowd are having very good success on strawberry flavored chicken and cut/whole shad and skipjack herring. The striper action continues below the dam on big swimbaits, bucktail jigs and spoons.
