I arrived at Lynn Creek Marina just before they opened at 6 AM. Checking in and buying bait took 5 minutes. The first cast had hardly hit the water when the bait was engulfed by a 8.5 inch bluegill. It just got better as cast after cast resulted in a fish. The first fish was the big one of the day, but some of the others were nearly as large. The bite continued until 8 AM and then slowed to a crawl.

I never cease to be amazed that the fishing dock at the marina yields fish year after year under intense fishing pressure. I think the only thing that saves it is the fact that most of the people that fish there do not know how. They arrive late in the day and throw a huge hook out to the middle of the open water.

Joe Pool is a big lake. A man with a boat who could search out the fish could probably consistently catch 8-9 inch fish. Unfortunately those days are behind me.

Nice fish! Good job. thumb




Side Note: As for finding good fish by boat more consistently! I fish from the bank or off a dock 90 percent of the time and seem to find nice fish most of the time.Fishing by boat does open up a lot more area to fish. Don't ask me why but I would rather fish from a bank or dock than a boat. That's just me! I guess I do not want the responsibility of boat owner ship. Keep catching those Bluegill Smithaven! You still have some good years ahead. cheers

Nice job Smithaven. Are they biting better on the parking lot side or marina side of the bridge?
