July 22 2012 – Joe Pool – Loyd Park – Walnut Creek

Wife says I can do whatever I want, but be home by 1pm.  I picked up a lowrance Elite 4 from Basspro yesterday, so I decided to run the yak out to joe pool.  The main lake had a strong south wind blowing, so I paddled over to walnut creek.

The lowrance has gps and reads a navionics chip, so I played around with the settings. The gps showed my position as I entered the creek. It showed tons of minnows in the creek, which is probably why it is so hard to catch something using a lure.

I caught three bass while floating around messing with the lowrance.  One on a road runner, one on a spinner bait, and one on a crank bait that had a bluegill pattern on it.
