Spring fishing is in full swing and we are catching lots of bass on Pickwick Lake. The bass are finished spawning and many are starting to move out onto the ledges so some of the best fishing of the year is just getting started! We're still getting quite a few bites in shallow water too.
The FLW Tour recently held a very successful tournament on the lake with Buddy Gross of Ringold GA taking the $100,000 first prize with 74 lbs. 5 oz. of Pickwick Lake bass!
We are starting to see some grass growing in the lake and soon we'll be fishing the grass beds. Right now we're catching our fish on the Strike King "XD Series" crankbaits, particularly the 5XD and the 6XD. We're also using Texas-rigged worms and Strike King Game Hawgs as well as Carolina rigs.
If you want to enjoy a great day on a beautiful body of water that is loaded with quality largemouth and smallmouth bass, hook up with Roger Stegall and let's go fishing on Pickwick!
