Gigantic Largemouth Bass on Lake Pickwick in the Spring! Sick Lipless and Swimbait Bite!

WOW, Pickwick Lake in Florence, AL has some big bass in it! Seriously one of my favorite places to fish! From monster Smallmouth to some huge Largemouth Bass this is the place to be! I already experienced an amazing morning of Smallmouth Fishing (video to be posted soon) When Ryan suggested we go after some of these big Pickwick Largemouth in the afternoon I was all about it!
We used a lipless crankbait called the Jackall TN – Here is the link the video on that bait!
We also caught a few fish on the True Bass Swimbait!

What an awesome day on Pickwick. If you are interested in a guide trip on any of these TN River Lakes check out Ryan’s Website and book a trip with him!

Who is SmallmouthCrush?

Travis Manson was born and raised where the giant Smallmouth Bass of the north live…WISCONSIN. He started fishing from the bank at a young age and spent most of his childhood with a rod in his hand. Travis is primarily a self-taught angler that is always learning and experiencing this amazing sport of fishing. He started out fishing for walleyes and fishing in local walleye tournaments, but then in his mid 20’s, he caught the BASS BUG and has been hooked every since. He competed at the highest level in bass fishing on the Bassmaster Elite Series for a number of years. He is a fishing guide offering trips on the Chesapeake Bay for largemouth bass(year round), guided trips for smallmouth back in Wisconsin (during select times) and trophy smallmouth bass guided trips in Upstate New York (May-November) His Youtube Channel is named after his passion for the smallmouth bass and will be used as a platform for “how-to” videos, on the water instruction, crazy on and off the water topics and vlogs on the day in the life of a fishing addict! Hope you enjoy!

  1. Ryan is an awesome guy. Had the pleasure of being his marshal at Cherokee lake and really enjoyed his company. Definitely have a trip to Alabama on my bucket list to fish with him. Thanks Travis for sharing your trip with us.

  2. I'd have been happy to have pinned that little fat one, Travis. Also, I went on the Tackle Warehouse website to check out the lures that you mentioned. Maybe I'll try them out on the Big Elk River where I try to fish.
