Bill's Fishing Bytes
Posted: June 22nd, 2016 by Bill Dance
This spring was brutal on anglers and as far conditions go, and we can only label it as a back-lash as it applies to fishing success. There was one front after another, a lot of east winds, off-water color, and water temps that never really reached ideal.
But, rest easy anglers; summer has arrived in Tennessee! And I can’t think of a better place to spend it than at Pickwick Lake.
You know, when I talk about my favorite Volunteer State waterways, Pickwick always rates No. 1 with me. And someone recently asked me, “If you had one lake in your home state to fish, which one would it be?” and I said, “Pickwick,” with absolutely no hesitation.
You see, the lake and I have a kinship. It’s where I caught my biggest smallmouth, an 8-pound, 4-ounce brown fish, and that alone should give it shrine-like status in my memory. But the reservoir is also a teacher to me. It’s where I matured as an angler, and learned more valuable bass fishing lessons than on any other lake. It was on Pickwick where I learned how to: structure fish, to operate a bass boat, pattern fish, use electronics to fish shallow and deep water, learn the seasonal habits of bass, and fish deep, clear, moving water.
