    At the spring gathering, we did well on channels for a couple of miles below the launching ramp; after that, it was mostly blues. All fish caught on skipjack. We didn't do any flathead fishing, but we sure saw some good looking places.

    I fished the tn yesterday about 2 miles or so below pickwick not even a bite. I saw one guy catch a blue but later at the ramp the fellow said it took 6hrs to catch that one. I havent talked to anyone that has a decent day fishing around picwick. I hope you have a big boat and maybe some sea sickness pills. The lake is rough when all those boats are out there. Good luck to you and let us know if you do any good.

    Right now the fish are about 15+ miles below the dam.
    AS for the 4th weekend. If theres no current. Best bet is Kroger's..
    If it were me I would fish at night. Sure not during the day time.
