Fishing Report
August 19, 2014
The water level is 413.93 and rising at the time of this report. Surface water temps are still in the low 80s. The dog days of summer are definitely here, but some quality fish are still being caught. Saturday is took a little over 18lbs to win a team tournament out of JP Coleman State Park, while 20lbs took top honors in a couples tournament Sunday out of JP Coleman. Bass reports are varying but for the most part have only gotten quite a bit tougher. The deep, off-shore bite continues to slowly diminish as the grass bite is gaining momentum. The deep ledges and humps are giving up a bite here or there, but nothing consistent. Anglers are throwing deep diving crankbaits, football jigs, spoons and big T-rig worms on the off shore structure. For the grass bite, anglers are using a variety of lures like senkos, swimbaits, spinnerbaits, chatterbaits or just about anything else that mimics a shad as massive schools of shad are flocking to the grass. One thing remains consistent with both bites however, schoolers. Anglers need to keep a topwater bait or some kind of shad imitator on the deck as you never know when and where they are going to pop up. Granted the average bite might be a little small, but occasionally there will be bass in the 4-5lb range amongst them. The nighttime bite is continues to be fair to good along the bluff walls in Bear and Yellow Creek and is a good way to escape the heat of the day. Black spinnerbaits and jigs are working there. Reports of striper action continues to come in from behind both Pickwick and Wilson dams. Swimbaits and spoons are both working, but more and more angler are opting to use live bait like skipjack and big shad to catch their fish. The catfish bite continues to be slow for the anglers reporting in except for those fishing behind Pickwick Dam. Most are tightlining cut or whole shad and skipjack. A reminder that the Mississippi handgrabbing season is now closed. Since Pickwick is a shared waterbody with Alabama, the 1 over 34 inch rule applies as well.

Fishing Report

This report is for the last week on the TN River-Pickwick Lake, Alabama. Although the fishing on Pickwick Lake has slowed down a little with the dog days of summer upon us, you can still catch some good largemouth and smallmouth bass. It seems to be spotty, but when you hit the right spot at the right time you can have a lot of fun. You can catch a few quality fish in the current at times, as well as grass lines down the lake, and out on the ledges. Some of the baits being used range from topwaters, jerkbaits, flukes, swimbaits, crankbaits to Carolina rigs, shakey head worms and jigs depending on where and what depth you are fishing. We have some hot days headed our way this week so make sure to wear protective clothing and sunscreen. Fall is just around the corner! Visit www.AlwaysGoneFishing.com For more information.
