Tournament Information:

Tuesday, March 21, 2017 11:05 AM

Pickwick Lake elevation: 410.37 ft. and slightly rising at the time of this report. Water temps dipped last week due to the cold snap but are starting to quickly rise again with every 70+ degree day. For bass, the pre spawn bite has definitely picked up some as it took 28 pounds to win a team tournament there this past Saturday. Anglers are throwing Alabama-rigs, single swimbaits, spinnerbaits, rattle traps, suspending jerkbaits, and jigs. Gravel bars, grass bed edges, and points seem to be where a lot of bass are holding. Look for more and more big females to move up this week due to the warmer weather.
