Lake Jackson Fishing Report August 2012

GON Staff | August 2, 2012

Jackson: Level: 0.4 feet above full pool. Temp: 80-90 degrees. Clarity: Clear and full in the main lake with a light stain in the rivers.

Bass: Eric Perkins reports, “Fishing has been kind of tough here lately. With the heat, it’s been much better at night. You can still catch a few early on topwater baits like a Super Spook Jr. and a Pop-R, and there has been some schooling activity down by the dam. Hybrids and stripers will also come up on a Spook and a Sammy from time to time. At night, I like a Norman DD22 and a big worm like an Ol’ Monster. If you can find brush, a big single-bladed spinnerbait and a Net Boy Flipping Jig in black are excellent nighttime baits. I also like running lighted boat docks at night. I usually throw a crankbait, like a Shad Rap or Model A Bomber on them. You can catch all kind of fish from stripers and hybrids to spots and largemouths. If you’re going out now, go real early or go at night. It gets real tough in the heat of the day.”
