Any info on Joe Pool? Heading out there tomorrow morning with a good friend in the kayak for the first time. Targeting largemouth, and not looking to have to paddle too far from whatever ramp/put in spot we use.

I've been catching shallow off points, or shallow off rocks at damn. You can't get to damn, but maybe the rocks off bridges is working, but I haven't tried.

If you launch at the state park you can get pretty close to the dam. Wouldnt be a bad paddle

I caught this guy down at the damn on Tues in about 3 feet of water. Kind of skinny but long and he fought like heck. He caught it at full cast so he jumped 5-6 times bringing him in.

Be careful of the pleasure boaters.. that place is a madhouse in warmer weather.

This was the biggest and only one I caught out there last weekend. My partner caught a handful. His biggest was about 4.5.

Just won the Saturday tourney there today.

Culled 3 overs .....all were caught on the gravil pits about 200 yards in front of the dam. Watermelon red zoom lizards on a 4 ' leader Carolina rig with a 2ounce tungsten. Very deep. 35-40 ft.

My dinks came from the same rig and a few culled on a whacky rigged 4" senko using a Gama G-Finesse 1/0 hook. Caught my unders on the banks along the cedar hill state park side.

It was slow last night. Caught 1, missed 1 because the wife called right when it hit, and missed another good one because I suck. I like the Carolina, but sometimes you can get hit and it's hard to tell whether you're just up against a tree branch, or you really get hit until you get it back and see the brush hog blasted. Great presentation for the fish though.

"Hook sets are free!" They say....lol. But c rigs with $10 weights aren't! Lol. I get nervous when I can't tell if it's a fish, or $10+ going down the drain.

I started using 65lb braid on my c rigs. And a 20lb InvisX leader. This way, I usually only lose 4-5ft of line and a Trokar. The braid is way more sensitive, so it helps you feel the bottom a discern if it's a rock, tree stump, or big girl.

Yea, I've been using 15lb test on the reel and 10lb floro leader so the leader will break off. I lost 4 hooks last night on tree stumps as I did a lot of sets after missing one. I've been buying the weight parts though for $3 not $10. $10 sounds too high for a weight and some spacers.

We always have a couple of C-rigs ready when fishing Joe Pool. It is a must.

Other go to for me at Pool is drop shotting. Not now, but once the weather heats up they'll be deeper around structure and drop shot is a must. Either that or C-rig off the points in 20 ft of water. I got a 6.5 lber in March drop shotting on 8lb test. Fun fish.
