I was at Joe Pool on Sunday and the operators at the marina told me that back in May the Parks and Wildlife stocked Joe Pool with over 40K of Florida Bass. Has anyone else heard this. Is there a place that you can check to see if this is true?

Heard they stocked just prior to the flood. Nice timing! Pool and grapevine are full of 4-5" bass.

I was catching a lot of 8" to 10" bass and found them schooling down by the dam for about an hour. While I was there I caught a 2 1/2 lb bass. Good fight, lots of fun.

Yes it really happened. I launched the same time that they did. We were the only 2 boats on the lake. Got to talk to them for awhile before they put them out. Looks like a lot of them made it. Think the flooding gave them plenty of hiding places.

The slot limit is the reason there are giants swimming in the lake

I don't think the slot limit has anything to do with why there are giants swimming in the lake. Most people that keep fish on the lake have no idea there is a slot limit. especially all the bank fisherman. After releasing some fish after weigh in three weeks ago. I was asked by some bank fisherman why I weighed in such small fish. I explained the slot and they had never heard of a slot limit. Most people that know the slot don't keep bass anyways.

The success of Lake Fork is not partially an effect of the slot?

Joe pool is no lake fork. lots of lakes with no slots have lots of quality fish in them. who knows what fork would be like without a slot. I don't think it would me much different. do you think if it didn't have a slot that much more people would go out there just to catch bass to eat? its just my opinion

If the slot limit has an effect on this lake IMHO it has an opposite one. I hardly ever catch bass that are within the slot. A ton of unders with an ocassion over. Isn't the slot limit designed to leave more fish in the lake that are in between the slot? I wonder if others have this same issue or I just do not know where to find 2-4lb fish out there.

i was always under the impression a slot limit is in effect so people will take the smaller fish and leave the bigger ones.

I fish JP and I take my 5 under 14 and clean them
