I bass fish out there 1-2x a week, but have only ever crappie fished from my dock. Thought I might give it a try. Area's I figure are good are the brush piles in the coves just around the big point moving to the south side of the lake, and the cove just to the west side of the main bridge on the south side. Also the bridges as I've gotten hung up enough on the branches people put under there. Am I on the right track. If you don't want to post spots, maybe PM me. I catch and release and won't be crappie fishing often. Just times I get asked to take out little kids and thought I'd have a few spots to take them to.

The lake is 3.5 ft high. I would fish the bridges and timber. There are not many piles on the lake from what I can tell. I have only found a couple and they hold fish but will be too deep for right now.

I’ve searched all over the lake and like KidKrappie said, there’s not much in the way of piles out on JP - or not that I’ve found yet. That said, I normally fish the bridges and there’s crappie there if you can weed out the short ones

There is a ton of timber past the south bridge, but as far as bass I've never fished there much. Not sure if others go down that far and it they have success.

You guys saying there aren't many piles...Now I haven't been on the lake in decades, but the corps strapped down I don't know how many piles of brush when building the lake. Unless those cables came loose and the piles of timber floated off, they are still there. They use to be marked with bouys, but i'm sure those are no longer around. As I remember, those piles were better during summer/winter as most were in deeper water.

There are some corp piles correct and I know of where one was and the only thing that I can find are the chunks of concrete that held them down, the brush is gone (as well as the bouys). The other one that I know of is not a core pile and holds fish well. I plan on doing some work out there this winter to take care of that problem.

I can remember the locations of 4 of them, but I was also just thinking that with the amount of time they wood has been under water, erosion could have taken a toll.

this brings up the question....trees that have been under water for many decades, such as Navarro Mills lake still has trees and it was impounded in the early 60s/ trees don't erode if they are under water?

ESPECIALLY those Bois d`arc trees Tech!!This tree will give a Termite a jaw ache! The OLD Timers use to make GREAT fences with them back in the day.
