Lake Jackson Fishing Report – August 2009
GON Staff | July 30, 2009
Jackson: Level: 0.5 feet above full pool. Temp: 88-89 degrees. Clarity: Mostly clear.
Bass: Slow, according to Aaron Batson. “The summer bite continues to be tough. During early morning hours there is a decent topwater bite on seawalls next to deeper water. Try a Pop-R or small Sammy, but don’t expect this bite to last very long after sunrise,” Aaron said. “Midday and evenings, the best bite is much deeper. Active fish are feeding in 25- to 35-foot ranges. Best baits will be small Carolina-rigged worms and small lizards in natural colors, 3/4-oz. Net Boy Bait football jigs with Zoom Speedcraw trailers, and 1/4-oz. Net Boy Bait screwball heads with Zoom Trick Worms in pumpkinseed or watermelon colors. The late-night bite has been best for numbers and big fish. Look for them to pull into the 10- to 15-foot range and feed after dark. Big dark-colored crankbaits like a Norman’s DD22 and all black Ol Nelle spinnerbaits can draw a big bite.”
