October 20, 2011 Joe Pool Lake

I woke up to 45 degree temps, but no wind.  I decided to wait until it warmed up before I went out.  Temp went up to 60 around 10am, so I headed out to the lake.  Water temp was around 67 degrees.  There was a slight wind, so I decided to go into the creek.

I caught a large white bass at the entrance to the creek while trolling a crankbait.   I couldn’t find any bass or bluegills in any of my normal spots, so I started jigging a road runner around stumps.  Caught one small bass and a whole s#$t load of crappie in 11 ft of water.  The water was still a little brown, but the crappie were everywhere.  I pulled eight from one spot.

Three of the crappie were decent size, but all the rest were small.  Caught another bass trolling the crankbait , and one catfish on a rooster tail.

Totals:  36 crappie   2 bass   1 catfish
