Yesterday At Pickwick

Recommended Posts

We didn't have good water to start with and then TVA cut it back. Still, we had a big day for numbers.

Our two big fish were green, a 3 and +/- 5. Everything else was small except for a gar and drum. The

only two species we didn't catch were stripes and white bass.Total count was somewhere north of 70

fish between 11:00 and 4:30. We went through 3 lbs of minnows and quit fishing early when we ran out.

Yeah, Pickwick is full of gar. Sometimes they'll swim right up next to the boat. We don't them, but they're fun to watch.

Split shot rig with #6 Gamakatsu Octopus Circle Hooks. We buy big minnows, at least 1 lb per person.

We drift down river about casting distance plue 5 yards or so. Ideally, you want you bait and boat moving

at the same speed. The key is having enough weight to tick the bottom without getting continuously hung

up. Buy lots of hooks and weights, you are going to lose a few!
