Lake Jackson Fishing Report June 2013
Jackson: Level: 1.3 feet above full pool. Temp: Mid 70s. Clarity: Light stain in the rivers, mostly clear in the main lake.
Bass: Eric Perkins reports, “Fishing has slowed a little bit, but with this crazy spring I wouldn’t be surprised to catch a few late spawners. I haven’t seen much of a shad spawn yet either, so you might still get on a late spawn and catch some good fish. The best thing going right now is the topwater bite for about the first hour or two. I’m catching fish on the main lake on Ricos, Pop-Rs, Sammy’s and Spook Jrs. I like a white belly on my baits and a white feather with Gamakatsu hooks front and rear. I’m mainly catching good spots with an occasional largemouth mixed in. After the sun gets up and it gets hot, I’m catching a few off bream beds in shallow water swimming a brown Net Boy Baits flipping jig with a green-pumpkin Supper Chunk. I’m also throwing a white Super Fluke rigged weightless. That pattern won’t hold up long. Expect the offshore bite to crank up later this month. A DD22 in lavender shad and a Strike King 6XD are hard to beat on offshore places like long points and humps. And if you have deeper brush, it should start holding a lot of fish real soon, also”
