April 16 2022 – Joe Pool Creek fishing.

Low water levels at the lake made it hard for bass boats to get back to the creek. I only saw one, and three yaks. I found crappie and one bass near brush that had fallen into the creek.

I pulled up close to the brush used a road runner to “slow roll” over the top of the brush and on the sides. Cast, reel in slow and let the jig sink. After this I went over to the brush and tried some vertical jigging. (Did not work.)

I caught several small crappie, a small bass, and one 14″ crappie. All on a 1/16th ounce road runner. White body with chartruese tail. Water temp in the creek was 72 degrees.
