Lake Jackson Fishing Report December 2019

GON Staff | November 22, 2019

Jackson: Level: 0.8 feet low. Temp: Mid 50s to low 60s. Clarity: Clear to lightly stained.

Bass: Tournament angler Brian Lee reports, “Bass fishing has been good. The spotted bass are chomping pretty good. Concentrate down the lake off main-lake points in or around water depths of 12 to 20 feet deep. For the shallower (12 feet) fish, throw a Lucky Craft Pointer 78 jerkbait in shad colors. Those same bass can also be caught on a Fish Head Spin. I personally like the 3/8-oz. Fish Head Spin because you can fish it deep or shallow. You can count it down to a depth and keep it in that depth targeting certain schools. The Sexy Shad or Aurora Shad topped with a pearl-white Zoom Fluke Jr. paddle tail or a Keitech 2.8 to 3.5 will be my choice on the Fish Head. Dipping the tail in JJ’s Magic chartreuse dye will make the spots hold on to the bait a little longer. The spotted bass are quality fish, averaging from 2 to 3 1/2 pounds. Once you find the better fish, you can get right quick. Don’t pound a certain school for a long time, even though once you get them fired up, they will start a feeding frenzy before scattering out. Target another school, allowing that school to regroup and bunch back up. The largemouth bite is sporadic for some anglers. Honestly, you really have to set your mind to targeting the largemouth. A jig is a excellent bait to throw, but I’d lean more on a ChatterBait, or I alternate between the two.”
