Lake Jackson Fishing Report June 2014
Jackson: Level: 0.9 feet above full pool. Temp: High 70s to low 80s. Clarity: Stained in the rivers, and clear in the main lake.
Bass: Good. Tournament pro Eric Perkins reports, “Fishing has been slowing up for me lately. I’ve been getting a ton of blow-ups on topwater out on the main lake, but they are not eating the bait very good. I’ve been following the fish out for a few weeks. I’m running-and-gunning a prop bait and a Rico. I was killing the fish on a fluke, and I can still catch a few on it, but it’s slowed way down. The shad spawn has been off this year, and I think it was the weather. Look for the early morning topwater bite to be good through June. After the sun gets up, it gets pretty tough. Honestly that’s when I’ve been putting it on the trailer, but you can drop out deep and crank a Strike King 6XD on offshore structure and cast a Net Boy Baits finesse jig on deep brush and catch a few. The next big deal will be the mayfly hatch, which could happen around the middle of the month. On a mayfly hatch is my black/brown Net Boy Baits 3/8-oz. jig with a green-pumpkin Zoom Pro Chunk and a black/brown ChatterBait. Also, topwater is good around a bug hatch early in the morning and late in the evening.”
