Lake Jackson Fishing Report – March 2010
Jackson: Level: 2.9 feet below full pool. Temp: Low to mid 40s. Clarity: Light stain and clearing on the north end.
Bass: Good. Kip Carter said, “Fishing is really picking up fast with this warm sunny weather. If you catch a windy day, go! Small crankbaits like Shad Raps and Rat-L-Traps are great, and for big bites throw spinnerbaits. Fish secondary points and rock currently, and wood should start producing bites in March.” Eric Perkins said, “The bite was great this weekend, and it’s getting ready to bust wide open if the weather will just stay stable.” Eric and his partner, Haven Wheless, placed second in two tournaments over the weekend with a little more than 15 pounds in each tournament. “There were lots of 10- to 12-lb. limits. The fish can be caught a lot of different ways right now from 5 to 25 feet deep. Rat-L-Traps, Shad Raps and Spro Aruku Shads are my favorites. Chrome/blue and crawfish colors are what we throw. I also never go without a 200 or 300 series Bandit and a Rebel Deep Wee R tied on. You can catch numbers of spots — and some good ones — on a 5-inch green-pumpkin Wackem Crazy Baits Pointy Tail worm. When the lake is low and the sun is high, the fish will always relate to rock and sand with deep water close by. There is also a strong jig bite right now on those same places. Some guys reported catching them on a jig all day, and others were saying they cranked and covered a lot of water. We started putting a Wackem Crazy Baits Crazy Craw on the back of our Net Boy jig, and that combo works very well. The retrieve speed of anything had to be very, very slow. We were just barely winding or dragging our baits. The bite was very subtle.”
