September 28, 2014 – Walnut Creek – Joe Pool Lake

After months of high wind, heat, and a busy work schedule, I was able to go out fishing.  Water temps were 78 – 80 degrees. Winds were very light, and it was cloudy all day. Water was a little stained, but not too dark.

I took my crappie gear and headed over to the creek. Caught a bunch of 8 inch crappie while checking stumps and stick ups.  I did manage to get 7 keepers all well over 10 inches.

The crappie did not want to chase any baits, I fan casted several areas with a road runner.  I took the same road runner and jigged near a few stumps and started getting hits.  The bite was very light, so I think I missed a few.

Ran into a couple on kayaks as I was leaving.  The man had run on top of a stump and was stuck.  I was thinking how no one is ever around when I get stuck on a stump and I wind up having to dive in to get free.  I tried not to laugh as I went over to help. I had him scoot towards the front of his yak while his wife pulled from the front, and I pushed from the back.   We got him free after two tries.
