Lake Jackson Fishing Report February 2018
Jackson: Level: 0.8 above full pool. Temp: Mid to high 40s. Clarity: Clear.
Bass: Tournament angler Eric Perkins reports, “Fishing has been pretty tough for us, but expect it to get better in February. Fish will move up and get shallow, and you can catch them a lot of different ways. I will be running and gunning with shallow crankbaits, Rat-L-Traps and jerkbaits. I like chunk rock and clay points. If you get four or five days of warm weather, February can be one of the best months. It all depends on the weather. I never go to the lake without a couple of jigs rigged up, also. I like to flip and pitch shallow wood and rock, too. I use a 7/16-oz. flipping jig and keep a 7/16-oz. round head for casting. I let the water color dictate what color I throw. Surprisingly, the fish have remained relatively shallow lately, even with the brutal cold temperatures we have had this winter. In fact, for the first time ever, we saw a turtle on a log on Dec. 29 in 49-degree water. That really clued us in to go shallower. Overall, fishing will get better this month.”
