Conditions : Pickwick Lake: Pickwick Lake elevation: 413.92 ft. and falling at the time of this report. 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. It took 22.48 to win a local team tournament there this past weekend. Anglers are using a variety of tactics and lures to trigger bites. From topwater early under the overhanging trees for the mayfly hatch bite to 25ft deep diving crankbaits and big spoons. Seems like anglers are getting bit on what they have the most confidence in. Big shakeyhead worms, jigs, C-rigs are catching fish too, but the biggest factor is finding a school of fish willing to bite. The further we move into the summer, the more current will play a factor. The catfish bite is very 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 10 – 20 ft of water. A great white bass bite is occurring right now. Anglers are using a variety of lures from jigging spoons to Alabama rigs to take advantage of this bite. Anglers are finding them on many of the ledges and humps.
