24. Pickwick Lake, Tennessee & Alabama


The first of several TVA lakes to make the top 25 list, Pickwick offers a lot of options for crappie anglers, from natural river stumps, brush piles, docks, ledges and grass. Those options along with an extremely fertile system that provides tons of baitfish and replenishing crappie populations make this a great but often overlooked crappie lake on the TVA chain. Trolling, cork fishing, vertical jigging and shooting docks are all popular options on this lake as well as casting jigs to brush and stumps in the spring and fall.
