Lake Jackson Fishing Report January 2016
Jackson: Level: 1.5 feet below full pool. Temp.: Upper 50s. Clarity: Stained.
Bass: January is a good month for spotted bass, and there’s always the chance at catching a big largemouth. Tournament angler Jordan McDonald said that rocks near deep water are the key, and some wood cover makes them better. The bass are feeding on shad and crayfish. Look for baitfish in an area. For covering water and finding bass, Jordan likes a crawfish-colored Rapala DT 6 crankbait, a 1/2-oz. white spinnerbait with silver and gold blades, and a silver Deep Shadow Rap jerkbait with a black back. To slow down and cover an area, Jordan fishes a 3/16-oz. shaky head jig with a green-pumpkin or black Zoom Trick Worm on it. He also fishes a 3/16- to 3/8-oz. jig with a black Fat Albert trailer. A morning dawn or bluegill Robo worm rigged drop-shot style above a 5/16-oz. sinker on a 1/0 hook rounds out his January arsenal.
