I am new to this forum, but live clase to Pickwick.  Right now the Alabama rig is king.  Main Lake gravel pionts or secondary points---its all good.  Just tie it on and slow roll it!

Guess I am gonna have to break down and buy a rig.  Never have spooled up with heavy line, but I may as well adapt.

The fishing was tough, we didn't have a bite after the sun finally came out.  Luckily, no one else had a good day either and my 2 fish for 10# took home the win as well as my 6.13 LM took big bass too!  Both fish came on the A-rig w/ rage tail grubs.

Congrats on the win!

 

What kind of water/structure did you catch them?  We are headed out first thing in the am.

we fished creek channel ledges and flats in the mid lake area.  Finding bait was the key and we only found it in one spot all day where I caught the fish.

Thanks for sharing kevo.  Bait was hard to find yesterday.  Friday, I did manage to put three good brown fish in the boat.  I was using Fat Albert grubs on a 3/8 oz lead head.  I mainly fish the tail race area.  From the Trace Bridge to Wilson dam.

We launched from Waterloo and the only place that we found bait was right there by the bridge next to the ramp.

Nice smallie!  We fished hard today.  Stained water and LOW, compared to what we are used to.  About 4-5 feet lower than normal.  Shad were non-existent, at least we couldn't find em.  We did pick up 20 fish today, ALL on shakey heads.  In the morning we found them in 20-25 fow and then by afternoon they were in 10-15.  Water temps started about 47 and rose to a max of 52.  My best 5 wouldn't have beat your 2, and neither would my partners.  Now put them together and maybe....... Tough

Nicest one of the day, caught a few more but none to brag about

Nice one!  Was that today?  What did you catch it on and where on the lake?

Nice!  Were you closer to Pickwick dam or Wilson?  I heard a couple reports of a little cleaner water and better fishing towards Wilson this weekend.

The water was pretty clear around the trace bridge.  We fished from there down about 15 miles.

I guess a couple of A rigs are in my future.  Nice fish!

They sure do catch fish!  Though after thinking about it, I think I could have caught more fish with a spoon.
