    Pickwick Lake Elevation 410
    Water Temp. 47

    Crappie
    Starting to hear a few good crappie stories. Fish in 15-18' of water in creeks with a jig and minnow.

    BASS
    I have been on a few fishing trips above and below the Dam lately and while some trips have produced big fish and a few small ones to go with it some trips have not produced any bass at all but we are likely to catch some other species. Grassy areas in the lake are still producing good fish at times although the grass is dying right now. Texas rigged Stike King tube baits and jigs have accounted for most of the fish we have caught. Strike King had a color called "Crazy Craw" and it has been a good color for me as well as green pumpkin. The weather being colder may make bass fishing tough over the next few weeks but this is still a time of year where you are likely to catch the biggest fish of the year.

    Stripers
    I am still selling a few striper baits, but when I ask the fishermen if they are catching any stripers they say they are not. If I was to take someone striper fishing right now I would depend on a deep diving Strike King Series 6XD crankbait to keep the trip interesting. Although I know you can have a good day on live bait and jigs drifting right now, I would not try it first.

    Catfish
    After talking to a few catfishermen while I was on a sauger fishing trip I was told that catfishing is still productive right now. And after a few slow days of sauger fishing I think I would have been better off cat fishing. Most catfishermen are using worms bought out of bait stores in deep water.
    Sauger
    I love to eat sauger like everyone else but it has been a little slow over the last couple of weeks. I have been fishing with a plastic grub on a sauger jig bouncing it in fifty feet of water.
