March 29 2014 – Walnut Creek – Joe Pool Lake

45 degrees on a Saturday morning.  I waiting till around 1pm to go out to the lake when it was in the low 70s.  The water temp was 67 degrees.  Water was still stained from the previous rain.

Met two guys at the launch in a canoe looking for the creek.  I gave them directions and went on my way.  Didn’t find any crappie near any of my favorite spots.  I did catch one white bass on a road runner in open water.  I saw something chasing shad, so I just cast in the general direction.

I missed a small bass on a plastic craw, and caught another bass with the same craw.  It was sitting in front of a tree in around three feet of water.

I’m going to bring some cut shad and possibly worms the next time I come back out here.  Not having much luck with jigs.
