Lake Jackson Fishing Report July 2014
Jackson: Level: 1.2 feet below full pool. Temp: Low 80s. Clarity: Stained in the rivers, and clear in the main lake.
Bass: Tournament pro Eric Perkins reports, “Fishing has slowed down, but the mayfly hatch is in full swing. If you get on the right one, you can load the boat pretty quickly. Ride around and look for birds and ducks feeding on them. I like a black/brown 3/8-oz. Net Boy Baits Flipping Jig with a green-pumpkin trailer and a black/brown ChatterBait when fishing a bug hatch. Early in the morning and late in the evening, topwater baits like a Bass Hound Main Event prop bait are hard to beat. You can still catch a few spots early on the main-lake walls on the prop bait, but it only lasts an hour or so. You need to run-and-gun as fast as you can. This time of year the night bite is hard to beat. I Like a Norman DD22 and a big worm. Fishing gets really good around 2 or 3 a.m. I like to crank main-lake points and humps and fish deep brush at night.”
