Lake Jackson Fishing Report April 2011

GON Staff | March 30, 2011

Jackson: Level: 0.4 feet below full pool. Temp: Low to mid 60s. Clarity: Stained up the river arms; clear on the main lake.

Bass: Good. Eric Perkins reports, “Fishing has been pretty good here lately, and it’s taking 14 or 15 pounds to win most tournaments held out of Berry’s on the weekends. Look for the weights to increase this month when the spawn hits. This is the best time of the year to catch a giant at Jackson. Right now it’s prespawn, and the fish are moving up fast with the warm weather. Spinnerbaits and Net Boy Baits Flippin Jigs are hard to beat along with shallow crankbaits and jerkbaits. A fluke and a Trick Stick are catching fish also. Look for a good topwater bite to kick on once the water stays around 65 degrees. The Bang-O-Lure bite will be on fire around the second week of April. On cloudy days, it will work all day long. When you see a fish on the bed, you can slow down and work it with a tube or a Wackem Crazy Baits Wild Thing. I can’t wait to try Wackems new Wiggle Weight on my bedding fish. It’s a a great new technique worth trying. Just screw onto the tail of a worm, insert the hook in the nose, and dance your bait along in the bed.”
