Lake Jackson Fishing Report – May 2009
Jackson: Level: 1.3 feet below full pool. Temp: 62-66 degrees. Clarity: Light stain throughout.
Bass: Aaron Batson reports, “The annual shad spawn is on at Jackson. Early mornings watch for the action to begin at daylight on seawalls all over the lake. You can catch the bass feeding on the shad with several baits. The best bait going will be a shad or white colored Ol-Nelle double-willow spinnerbait. Fish the spinnerbait tight on the seawalls, and hold on. You will catch largemouths, spots and even stripers. You can also catch some good ones on topwater baits like Sammys, Pop-Rs and flukes. Cloudy days, the topwater baits will work all day. On windy or sunny days, stick with the Ol-Nelle all day. Later in the month, fish will be out much deeper, and they can be caught on a 3/16-oz. Net Boy Baits Screwball jig head with a Zoom Finesse worm. Look down near the dam on rocky banks for the jig-head bite.”
