Pickwick Lake January crappie fishing report

By Ray - Posted on 24 January 2011

Charlie and I headed over to Pickwick Lake Saturday for about half a day of putting out spring cover while the water level was down to 408. We spent most of the day putting out slab beds and stake beds but could not resist fishing one of the PVC trees we put out in the fall. I also attached a picture of the PVC tree before we put it out. We fished one of the trees and caught 3 keeper crappiei in just a few minutes. Looks like the pvc trees are going to work pretty well.
Last is the SI image of the PVC tree we caught the crappie on.

Great looking top guys, should be a fish magnet. I have been putting PVC out for several years and they work really well. But be warned, fishing PVC might ruin you from wanting to fish any jig hanging wood cover.

Looks like Kevin Van Dam will want to know where those are. Seem to be holding some pretty good size fish by the looks of that scan.

Man I cut my finger pretty good dressing that last deer of the season and looks like I got about another week before it heals. The PVC tree we made shows up really small on side imaging. So small I wouldn't stop and fool with it if I didn't know what it was. Now on DI it shows up good as well as 2d sonar.

We can sure do that. It is a great lake to fish.

Angling for Crappie is popular throughout much of North America. Methods vary, but among the most popular is called 'Spider Rigging', a method characterized by a fisherman in a boat with many long fishing rods pointing away from the angler at various angles like spokes from a wheel. Anglers who employ the Spider Rigging method may choose from among many popular baits. Some of the most popular are plastic jigs with lead jig heads, crankbaits or live minnows. Many anglers also chum or dump live bait into the water to attract the fish hoping the fish will bite their bait. Crappie are also regularly targeted and caught during the spawning period by fly fishermen, and can be taken from frozen ponds and lakes in winter by ice fishing.
