Lake Jackson Fishing Report – August 2010
Jackson: Level: Full pool. Temp: 90-91 degrees. Clarity: Clear.
Bass: Tough. Aaron Batson said, “If it gets any hotter, we’ll just have to run around in our tournaments, and just see who can scoop up the biggest fish.” Aaron said to cover a lot of water, and you can pick up fish here and there. You can run the banks hitting shallow cover to pick up a few fish. For this bite, Aaron likes to flip a 3/8-oz. Net Boy Baits flipping jig. In low-light early or late, look for mayflies, and fish a Pop-R. You can also catch some fish off of deep brushpiles in the 20- to 25-foot range. Aaron said if you catch a fish off a brushpile, go ahead and move on to the next one. A Carolina-rigged Trick Worm or Baby Brush Hog, a big Texas-rigged worm or a football jig will work for the deep bite. Aaron said the best colors have been junebug and redbug. If you want to try something different, head way up the rivers to find some cooler, moving water. Flip cover with a jig or crank a Bandit 100 Series.
