Lake Jackson Fishing Report – July 2009
Jackson: Level: 0.4 feet above full pool. Temp: 86-88 degrees. Clarity: Fairly clear.
Bass: Fair. Aaron Batson reports, “I have won three of the last four Tuesday night tournaments fishing deep with Netboy Baits 3/4-oz. football jigs and Texas-rigged soft plastics. The bite has been coming on the main-lake channel in 25 to 35 feet of water fishing the baits extremely slowly. It has only been taking 9 to 11 pounds to win. Bait colors don’t seem to be important, but we have been sticking to darker colors like black/blue and browns. The key is to fish the bait really slowly, and let it sit idle for long periods of time. They normally bite once you begin to drag and hop the bait after a long pause. Early in the mornings, head up the Yellow and South rivers looking for the mayflies. Pop-Rs and buzzbaits will catch some keepers around the mayfly hatch, but they have been hard to find.”
