1. Heys guys I have a college tournament coming up here in early march and I'm coming from NC. My buddy is coming up there just to fish in his boat and he was just ...more curious where would be some good spots to catch a big smallmouth. Last year we came in late march and had a blast but he didn't catch one smallmouth. Any tips or advice for my friend?

      Alex this counts as quasi legal social media. As long as you don't pay for secret info from a guide something public like this is fine

      ok thanks Thad I know last time he was really hoping to catch a good smallie but just didn't happen and it kinda bummed him down

      If you put in at hurricane creek and fish the rock bluffs that has always caught some good smallies

  2. Hey guys I'm coming to pickwick in may from North Carolina to fish in a college tournament can anyone give me some advice on what the fish will be doing I figured ...more the ledge fishing would probably be pretty good in may since Alabama stays a lot warmer year round than North Carolina and the fish may be post spawn, any advice?

      The horse shoe will always be good, also try the current line off the point of jackson island. Down the river you could catch fish around natchez trace bridge and ...more also second creek bridge. Best of luck!

      but if the water temp has been cool will the smallmouth still be on normal spawning schedule or no?
    3. alex thornton 0
      Dude that would be awsome! ill have to see when i get there because on may the 18th practice starts and then i cant fish with anyone accept with my partner. Would ...more you mind talking over the phone?

      Ledge fishing will be hit or miss. Winter lasted too long. Fish just started spawning.
