    Pickwick Lake Elevation 410
    Water Temp. 40
    BASS
    Nothing much has changed over the past few weeks. For the most part bass fishing will be slow. This time of year is good for catching quality fish but often you can't expect to catch a lot of fish. Keep it pretty simple and cover as much water as possible moving your bait slow. Carolina rigged Strike King Rage Craws work well. A Series 3 crank bait in red colors also works well. Just remember when cranking a crank bait to keep it slow. Rock bluffs and grassy areas are still holding fish. I look for smallmouth to start biting better over the next few weeks.
    Stripers
    Stipers are through out the river and lake, it is just hard to fish for them right now. You can occasionally catch some on deep diving Strike King Series 6XD Crank baits around the Dam. The good news is that stripers will bite better and better from this point on. Over the next few weeks I expect to see some of the biggest stripers I will see all year and numbers will increase after that.
    Sauger
    A lot of fishermen stop or sauger fishing around this time of year either because they think it is over or because they switch to bass fishing (which I understand ) but this is my favorite time to go sauger fishing. I usually catch better quality fish and more keepers than I do in the prior months. For some reason it seems like sauger are not as picky when it come to what you tip your jig with as for as a minnow or some kind of plastic bait so naturally I will chose a plastic bait and it performs well. The standard way of fishing with a sauger jig in water as shallow as 15' and water as deep as 60' will continue to work throughout March. Look forward to catching them on crank baits in the next few weeks.

    Some Things you Must Try

    One of the conditions we see on a regular basis in the fall is clear water although this year has been more rain, the reason being is generally we do not see a lot of rain and the thickness of the hydrilla causes the water to clear as it acts as a filter and cleans the water.... read more
