Pickwick ought to be good for a jerkbait bite right now in 2 to 6 ft of water. I would use a suspending jerkbait. I like Smithwick Rogues best or Lucky Craft's. As the weather warms a bit, spinnerbait bite should be good too. Prolly throw a white or white and chartruse 3/8 oz with willow leaf blades. Also rattlebaits like a rattletrap or Xcalibur XR-50 should be good. Colors usually dont matter much to me since they are a reaction type bait but I do kinda prefer a red this time of year or the usual chrome and black or chrome and blue should work.I had some luck at Pickwick a few weeks ago with jerkbaits. Ambient temp was around 60 and water surface temp was around 45 I think if I remember right. Might be a lil warmer by now which in my mind would be better.As far as Bay Springs, a bud of mine had a tourney there last weekend and it wasn't good. Of coarse weather was a factor. Jerkbaits fished about like I said at Pickwick have done good for me this time of year there.. Hope this helps ya some, these are the things I would try if I was to go right now. Good luck, let us know how ya do if get over there soon.

i've always found bay springs to be better earlier for bass.. find a creek channel on the west side, and fish it back...medium crankbaits, jigs, and worms/lizards always produced... when i used to tournament fish, it was amazing how many people "made the run" from pickwick in late winter, and vice versa from bay springs in april/ may..i would hate to imagine buying that 50 gallons, today...
