It takes patience to fish Pickwick. You are going about it the right way. Remember, just because a hump isn't good one day doesn't mean it won't be good the next. Not only do you have to constantly search for new ledges/humps you have to keep going back to the ones you have already found and recheck them. Some key components to a good hump/ledge are: gravel or mussel bottom, some sort of current break (either stumps or basketball size boulders), and a steep drop so the fish can change depth without having to make a long horizontal movement. Always look for bait on the graph, usually if you don't see bait you won't find fish. Also, while searching, sometimes I like to troll a crankbait. If all else fails, use live bait while you are looking, this narrows the chances that there might be fish there that just aren't biting. Pickwick is a dynamic lake, there are no humps or ledges that will produce fish all the time. The fish are constantly on the move.
