Fishing ReportJP Coleman/Pickwick Lake - 11/12/2019 4:58:55 PM
|Bass||A few bass have been caught shallow and deep on bladed lures and lures mimicking baitfish balls. Jerk baits have also produced a few decent fishing around weed lines.|
|Crappie||Anglers should try 8 to 15 feet of water for suspended crappie. Try isolated brush piles with a single pole as well. This time of year is usually good for crappie fishing if you can find them. Try fishing around creek channels targeting suspended fish with minnows/jigs.|
|Catfish||The catfish bite has been good. Anglers are drifting by laydowns and channel ledges using nightcrawlers, cut skipjack, and shad have been catching all species of catfish. A lot of anglers are having success jug fishing and bouncing the bottom.|
