Pickwick Pre-Fishing Cabala's Crappie USA Classic on Pickwick

By Ray - Posted on 25 October 2010

Well Charlie and I pre-fished for the Cabala's Crappie USA Classic on Pickwick this weekend. I really think this is going to be a good tournament with some good weights. I will go ahead and forecast it will take about 21.5 pounds to win.
We fished a lot of water this weekend and caught crappiei just about everywhere we went and in every depth we tried. The problem is the best crappie we could come up with were 1.25.
We had the opportunity to stay in a friends camper at Goat Island. I will tell you that is a nice set up. Basically there is now a little community of very friendly people who lease the spaces and keep their capers there. If you are looking for a place to set up your camper I would recommend you check into this place.
Another very favorable find there was a little bait shop named Otha's. This place is just north of the Goat Island boat ramp road on Hwy 25. We got a great minnow count of quality minnows and a very good breakfast for a price I guarantee can not be beat. These are my kind of people and I recommend a stop here for bait and breakfast.
I will be headed back to the lake Wed morning and hope to see some of you guys there. Good luck to all and we will have standing and results here almost real time.

A method of keeping fish alive after they have been caught. A string or small nylon rope is threaded through the mouth and gills of a fish and is then tied off to the boat or dock allowing the fish to remain overboard in the water but preventing them from swimming away. With the advent of livewells and other more modern methods of keeping fish, stringers have become nearly obsolete, but can still be quite handy when fishing from the bank of a pond. The term 'stringer' is also used by anglers to indicate the size of their catch for the day (10-pound stringer = 10 pounds of fish).
