Pickwick Lake

Looking for a top-notch fishing experience? Look no further than Pickwick Lake in Florence, Alabama, where you can find some of the best Smallmouth Bass fishing in the country. As a Pickwick smallmouth guide, I can attest that this is my favorite Northalbamabass lake, and I recently won the MLF Toyota Series Championship there. With five and six pound brownfish being common catches, there’s no better place to experience the thrill of a great jump.

But that’s not all – with the recent emergence of hydrilla in the lake, the largemouth fishing is now just as good. On Pickwick, it’s becoming more common to catch solid bags of both largemouth and smallmouth on the same day. And if you’re interested in night fishing, Pickwick is an excellent choice, with trips available to take advantage of the nocturnal feeding habits of big smallmouth.

When it comes to lures, my top recommendations as Pickwick lake bass guide include Berkley Hollow Belly Swimbaits, Football Jigs, Berkley Dredger crankbaits, shaky heads, and wacky jigheads with Berkley Magnum Hitworms and Berkley Cane Walker and Choppo topwater baits.
