Pickwick Crappie 7/19/2011
Fished Pickwick this morning with my wife and kids. Fish were scattered and slow. Fishing was real slow until the dam started pulling water around 9AM. Fish turned on heavy for a little bit, but there was no wind today and we were all hot so we pushed them down in the ice good and went to the waterfall and went swimming and let the kids play for a while. Fish were real color specific. My son hooked up a monster smallmouth that easily went 6 to 7 lbs. We got a good look at him but he straightened out the number 6 hook before I could get him in the dip net. Wished he could have got him in would have been an awesome catch for a kid. And like my previous trip we caught tons of white bass/stripe, fun to catch regardless but they just aren't crappiei.
