This report is for the Saturday January 3rd on the TN River-Pickwick Lake, Alabama. Pickwick Lake has really turned on the last few weeks. The weights in some of the local tournaments have jumped up to the upper 20's and as high as 33lbs or so, with a five bass limit, to win. WOW!  We fished half a day out Mcfarland Park in on Saturday and caught several quality fish in the 2 1/2 to 4 1/2 lb range. You can catch largemouth and smallmouth around the current at times, as well as bluffs and points near channel swings. Some of the baits being used range from A-rigs, swimbaits, jerkbaits, spinnerbaits, shakey head worms and jigs. Now through spring is the best time to catch a trophy largemouth or smallmouth bass! Let's go fishing! Water Temp 49 degrees.

PICKWICK LAKE/J. P. COLEMAN:

Late Fall/Winter fishing report: As water temps continue to fall, water level will control the cold water bite for the next few months. Sudden rises in water level, which results in increased current, will typically turn-on the bass bite, despite colder water temps. For bass, target offshore humps, points and river ledges with 1 oz. spinnerbaits, Alabama rigs, suspending jerkbaits, tubes, and grubs. Don’t overlook vertical bluffs during the cold weather, especially where the old river channel swings in close. Grubs and jigging spoons are good choices for a vertical presentation. Crappie can be caught during the winter; target the bigger creeks and hollows (Indian, Yellow) and look for crappie suspended near the creek channels. Most anglers typically target 20 to 30 feet of water for best results. Hair jigs get the nod during the cold weather. Pre-spawn crappie will start to show up as early as mid to late January. Most crappie anglers will start in Yellow Creek and make their way to Indian Creek towards the end of February. The catfish bite is typically pretty tough; the exception would be during good current flow. Target the ledges with cut or whole shad for best results. A reminder that Pickwick is a shared waterbody with Alabama, so the 1 catfish over 34 inch rule applies here. Those who want to target sauger during the winter should fish the tailraces below Pickwick and Wilson dams with heavy hair jigs and minnows. Weekly fishing reports will pick back up the first week of February.
