The summer hot weather pattern is in full swing at Pickwick Lake. The ledge bite is on and we're catching some large numbers of bass on most all our trips. We're catching and releasing 35 - 60 bass most days and we're getting some nice big ones too!
We're fishing Carolina rigs with all kinds of Strike King soft plastics and the bass are eatin' them up! If you want to have some fun, try a Strike King 10" Bull Worm. Big baits catch big bass!
Our friends are also having success with jigs fished with Rage Bug trailers from Strike King. Bass in the 4 to 5 lb. range are fairly common. We're also catching some pretty good smallmouth as well, with some up to 6 lbs. If your arms and shoulders are in good shape, you can fish the big, deep-running crankbaits, like the Strike King 6XD and the 8XD. They'll catch some good ones if you can hang in there with them in the heat!
The grass is coming on and we're starting to catch fish around the grass now and it will only get better as the grass gets thicker. The fishing is very good right now at Pickwick Lake and we would be glad to show you how it's done. Give us a call! You'll be glad you did!
