Joe Pool is somewhat of a non spectacular lake imo. There are very little brush piles to be found. I couldn't find any. I launched at Loyd Park and fished the only standing timber that I could see. It was about 15 ft deep. I started catching nice size crappie right off on jigs. I had 4 good keepers in the first 30 minutes. Then it slowed down . I managed a few more. Then went and got some minnows. I caught a keeper under the bridge.Then just took a stroll looking for brush piles. I didn't find any. Went back to where I started at the timber and caught a few more keepers and some small ones. I caught 2 small channel cat on minnows. Lost an anchor.It got hung on something and i could not get it loose.
Went home with only 9 keepers.But ,I aint complaining. It was a beautiful day and I have a working boat.

I may try Grapevine next time

There are a good amount of piles at joe pool you just have to spend time looking. They tend to be shallow. Grapevine is even tougher since there is zero productive timber. It is all brush, rock and ledge fishing there. Joe pool will surprise you if you fish it enough.

I probably did .. from the boat ramp I made a right and fished the timber there. Then I headed to the bridge..I thought about fishing the pillars on the big electric towers.
I am headed out Wednesday after work to try again for crappie and some sand bass

Joe Pool is loaded with brush piles and downed timber. There are several brush piles under the bridge and along both sides of the bridge.

The Corp left a lot of brush piles when they built the lake. Many of them are older piles now and are harder to find as they will not show as tall shapes. But even those lying down still have a lot of crappie on them.
