Lake Jackson Fishing Report May 2011

GON Staff | April 27, 2011

Jackson: Level: 1.1 feet below full pool. Temp: 68-72 degrees. Clarity: Mostly clear.

Good. May is the time of year to catch those big spots on topwater. Get out on the main-lake points, and work Sammys, Spooks and Long A Bombers for some awesome explosive bites. Full sunny days are best for this bite, and it can last all day. Later this month, look for fish to stack up deep on summer holes. Carolina rigs will put the best numbers in the boat. Largemouths in May will stage on secondary points as they prepare to head back to their main-lake summer holes. They can be caught on medium-running crankbaits, like 300 Bandits or No. 6 Fat Free Shads. Later in the month, expect to find them on main-lake brushpiles in 12 to 15 feet of water. Texas-rigged lizards or 1/2-oz. jigs would be good baits to work the brushpiles with.
