On a normal Texas year when do the bass spawn? last year threw me in a slump with all the rain I’m looking to try to catch some good bed fish this year(yes I know it’s quite early) but unfortunately I live near joe pool now and just want to try to actually catch a nice fish out of there so any help would be appreciated

They mostly spawn in the spring from Jan into May.

You can catch a Bass year round. There is no magic bullet. If i wanted to catch a bass and didn't have a lot of experience.
I would tie a worm on and throw it in every piece of structure i could find on the water edge.

When I’m not able to go fishing! Early February-late May... mainly early March and April though.

I've seen bass actively working beds from late December through May.
Can't be 100% sure they were actually "spawning" but they were at least going through the motions.
Like mentioned above, tie on a big worm and drag it around every piece of wood/vegetation you can find.

This year seems like they were spawning well into May with all the rain we had.

Do you have a boat? I say that, because Joe Pool routinely pumps out 8-10 pound bass. Daily, you have a chance at a DD with honest expectations of catching 6-8 pounders. You don’t HAVE TO SIGHT FISH to catch big ones.

I ask about the boat, because your fishing access for a big one is limited if you’re bank fishing, but still not unhear of to catch some really big fish throwing a c rig or shaky head around the bridges. If you have a boat, fish 15 ft to the thermocline and fish a c rig, jig, drop, shaky head, deep crank, etc. you’ll catch some.

Living close to Joe Pool does have its drawbacks, but the lake itself sure isn’t one of em.
