Details:Had a great time fishing Lake Pickwick last week. We were in the North side so fished mostly in Tennessee but also Alabama and Mississippi. We caught alot of fish at a steady pace, didn't catch any trophy fish but caught so many 2-3lber's. Water temps were 63 to as high as 70 on one day. We found them in 8' or less with the best spots being the transitions from 10' to 6' and around the points of the main lake as well as the creeks.

I caught most of mine on a Keitech Fat Swing Impact on a 1/8oz 2/0 ball jig head. Also did well with a shaky head rigged Senko and a PBJ finesse jig with a downsized trailer. I guess that the quality of the fishing has alot to do with the TVA flowing water at the dams, evidently the fishing really turns on when the current increases with the flows. Unfortunately they didn't flow any water last week but the fishing was still really good.

The trip down and back wasn't bad. We took two boats and had three guys from the this area and a fourth with his new BassCat coming up from Fla. We drove straight through so around 24 hours. I drove the entire way back and it was really pretty easy except from Newark NJ over the GW but with all the traffic, pouring rain and towing a boat it kept me VERY alert. LOL I think this will be an annual trip going forward. Looking forward to a week on Champlain the beginning of June. I suspect the water temps will just about reach 63 by then.
