Took a short trip out to loyd park around noon. Temp at sunrise was just above 40 degrees, and there was NO WAY I was going out in that.  Temp was around 60 when I put in and the water temps were around 65.  Too much wind blowing to go out on the lake so I paddled back to Walnut Creek.

As I was leaving I saw another guy in a yak coming out with eight huge crappies.  I was hoping he had not found the spot I located back in the creek.  Unfortunately he did, and he told me right where he caught them.  I could only hope  a few of the big ones were still back there.  I caught several undersized crappie and a few bass while jigging around with a road runner.

Got back to the spot and pulled out one just above 10 inches, and two huge 13 inchers.  Caught a few more small ones before calling it a day.
