March 18, 2012 – Joe Pool Lake – Walnut Creek

Temp 72. Water temp 65. Wind out of the southeast around 10mph.  The creek is starting to clear up a little.  Not as muddy, but the coming rain may make it muddy all over again.  Saw four kayakers launching as I pulled up.  They were going up the creek with minnows.  One of them had a trolling motor, so they all got really close to him and he pulled them to the creek.

The crappie did not bite my small spinner bait or any of my road runners.  I threw a spinner bait around for awhile and didn’t get any bites.   Just as I was about to paddle to another spot,  I got a big one sitting next to the bank.  My scale said 4.5 pounds.

I saw something chasing minnows, so I threw a small silver crankbait at it and got a small bass.  Another slow day, but its better than staying home.  The other yakkers said they caught several crappie with the minnows.
