Lake Jackson Fishing Report – December 2010
Jackson: Level: Full pool, but drawdown should begin Dec. 1. Temp: Mid to high 50s. Clarity: Light stain to clear..
Bass: Aaron Batson reports, “Small crankbaits, flippin’ jigs and spinnerbaits will all catch fish this month while fish are still shallow early in the month. Later in the month, football jigs and spoons will get strong. Rat-L-Traps and Shad Raps will be hard to beat for shallow cranking fish. Good colors are chrome/blue and firetiger. Look for the bite to be in 3 to 8 feet of water near steep drop-offs. A slow-rolled 1/2-oz. Ol Nelle chartreuse and white spinnerbait with a single Colorado blade will also load the boat in the same area. Net Boy Baits Flipp’N Jig in black/blue with a Zoom Pro Chunk in black will work very well on docks and blowdowns in deeper water, also. Later in the month when water temps get down into the low 50s, fish will move deep and can be caught on a 3/4-oz. War Eagle jiggin’ spoon and 3/4-oz. Net Boy Baits FootBall Jigs in 25 to 30 feet of water. Look for points and ledges down the lake for this deeper bite.” Eric Perkins reports, “I think they will be drawing it down for winter pool. This will make the fishing much easier as it concentrates the fish. Look for fish to be on deeper chunk-rock banks and channel swings and also off some long points. I like the ones closer to the dam. Fish will move up and down depending on the weather. A variety of medium to small deep-diving crankbaits will do the trick: Shad Raps and Fat Raps, Norman Deep Little Ns, and a great search bait is the Spro Aruku Shad. I like a Little George also if I locate deeper fish way out off a long point or ledge. Looks like the weather will be warm for a few weeks, so the shallow-cranking bite should hold up. I love to fan cast a Net Boy Baits Finesse Jig off these same places, also. We use green craw with a green-pumpkin chunk or brown-black depending on water color.”
