Lake Jackson Fishing Report March 2020

GON Staff | February 27, 2020

Jackson: Level: 1.0 feet above full. Temp: Mid to upper 50s. Clarity: Heavily stained.

Bass: Tournament angler Brian Lee reports, “March marks the days that most every angler can’t wait for with warm weather and prespawn bass. Bass will start to transition to points, making their travels and feeding up as they head to spawning areas. The weather this time of the year is a huge factor, knowing that past years have been either cooler than normal or warmer than expected. So remember to keep that in your mind if you plan a trip to Jackson. Primary points with a No. 5 crawdad Shad Rap is really all you need to catch bass this month, but keeping a variety of baits on deck will do the job, as well. If we have a few days of warmer weather, look more toward secondary points and spawning areas for bass because it doesn’t take much to get them committed to going. If a few days of colder weather happens to hit us, I’d throw a Fish Head Spin with a Zoom pearl-white Fluke Jr. paddletail and crawl it on the primary points. The cooler temps may make the bass suspend as they wait for the weather to stabilize. Look for a wave of spawners to flood the banks later in the month as the full moon and warmer temps approach. Soft plastics will be key baits, and remember to slow down.”
