Pickwick-Wilson Lakes - Freshwater Fishing Report
* See Previous Cyber Angler Report By Reed Montgomery / Reeds Guide Service www.fishingalabama.com "Alabama Smallmouth Bass in Winter" and go to Cyber Angler "freshwater pictures" link to see 6-7 pound smallmouth bass!
As Tennessee River waters continue to cool in North Alabama (and 2013 slowly comes to an end), the smallmouth bass just keep on getting bigger!
Wilson Lake and Pickwick Lake have recently produced trophy, 6-7 pound smallmouth bass with clients of Reeds Guide Service!
Everything from slow moving lures fished on or near bottom like crankbaits, tube baits, swim baits and jigs, to lipless lures, spinnerbaits and jerk baits! Even topwater lures may be the "big bass" ticket this week!
Water temps are currently on the rise, in the upper 40's to low 50's! Warmer next week!
