    Thought I would post that drove by the dam yesterday at Pickwick. And they were catching skipjack from the bank. Only stood there looking for a few minutes, but everyone had one or 2 while I was there watching,. I had a few people ask me to post then the skipjack at pickwick were hitting. So its time but make sure theres going to be current. Heres a link to the water release at Pickwick Dam in Tn.

    Also for the Ones that fish Big Baits on the Big River. We now have in stock, 10/0 & 11/0 Sickle hooks. http://www.wildwolfproducts.com/hooks.htm There half way down the page.
    Also will also be stocking a new Hook that is a cross between a circle hook and a Kahle hook. These are great looking hooks. They come in 5/0 up to 10/0 and then a Heavy Duty 10/0. They have a nice wide gap to them also. Hope to have a limited ammount of them in stock in a week to 10 days.

    YA Tennessee.Its a blue hog paradise looks to me. I just saw the pictures from this guys trip. many blues over 30#s and some alot bigger. looked like 20 or so fish above 20#s at least. Bout 9 hours from me but would be well worth it.

    ill be there to my friend. in the last week i have heard about pickwic a dozen time at least. and everything ive heard sounds good to me. good enough to make that 9 hour drive way more appealing.
