Lake Jackson Fishing Report March 2013

GON Staff | February 27, 2013

Jackson: Level: 0.3 feet below full pool. Temp: Low 50s. Clarity: Light stain in the rivers, clear in the main lake.

Bass: Fair. Tournament angler Eric Perkins reports, “It’s hard to beat a Spro Aruku Shad in chartreuse-shad right now and some form of a jerkbait. I like Lucky Craft Pointers. The fish are really roaming a lot right now, and it’s because the bait is moving so much. Fishing is hit or miss with the weather right now. Long points, humps and deeper channel swings are holding fish. Put the trolling motor on high, and cover a lot of water. If the weather turns off cold, these fish will lock up on a place like a long point or a break, and they won’t move much. Start concentrating on shallow wood and rock with shallow crankbaits such as a Gulp, Shad Rap and the Aruku Shad. When the sun pops out and gets bright, I like to skip a 3/8- or 1/2-oz. Net Boy Baits Flipping Jig with a Zoom Pro Chunk under floating docks. That jig combo is always how I target my better fish down here. I let water color dictate what color I will skip.”
