Lake Jackson Fishing Report August 2013
Jackson: Level: 1.1 feet above full pool. Temp: Mid to high 80s. Clarity: Stained in the rivers.
Bass: Slow. Eric Perkins reports, “Fishing has been a little tough here lately. There is still an early topwater bite on the main lake, but it doesn’t last long. Topwater prop baits in a shad pattern and Ricos and Zell Pops are working well. After the sun gets bright, you will need to go deep on brush or humps and any deep offshore structure. In the deep brush, I like a Net Boy Baits finesse jig in green craw or green pumpkin with a Zoom Super Chunk trailer. If you can go after dark, that’s when the best bite is occurring right now. I like a Zoom Ol Monster worm, a black spinnerbait with a big single blade and a variety of big crankbaits after dark. I usually fish between 12 and 18 feet deep on main-lake offshore places. Humps, points and ledges are about all I fish. I do like dock lights, too, and I crank those as well. You need to go early or late or after dark in August.”
