Lake Jackson Fishing Report February 2014
Jackson: Level: 1.3 feet below full pool. Temp: 45 degrees. Clarity: Stained.
Bass: Slow. Tournament angler Eric Perkins reports, “Fishing has been pretty tough on me lately, but we do finally have some stained water, so if the weather breaks and turns off warm for a few days, all that can change. Right now you can catch fish a number of ways. Some are shallow, and some are real deep. For numbers, I think the deeper fish will be more consistent. Look for places like long points and steeper, deep rock banks. I like to work the deeper fish by casting a 7/16-oz. Net Boy Finesse Jig with a Zoom Super Chunk. I also like to get right over the fish and drop a 3/4-oz. Hopkins spoon on them. You can grind it out shallow with shallow- to medium-diving crankbaits and a finesse jig, but don’t expect the numbers. In February, if we get a week or so of warm weather, it gets really good up shallow on the rock. I like shallow chunk rock with a sandy bottom. Crankbaits like a Spro Little John or Bass Hound Cosmo or Square Bill worked on shallow rock can be deadly. Again, this is all depending on the weather.”
