Lake Jackson Fishing Report May 2013
Jackson: Level: 0.9 feet above full pool. Temp: 70 degrees. Clarity: Stained in the rivers, mostly clear in the main lake.
Bass: Good. Tournament angler Eric Perkins reports, “Fishing has been good, but it’s still a little behind with the cooler weather. I think you’re going to see fish still trying to bed in early May. I like to catch them on topwater early in the morning on a Bang-O-Lure, but once the sun gets high I will just slow down and work the fish with a lizard or tube. We should have some excellent topwater action this month. I love Ricos, Sammys and Zell Pops. Anything with a white belly and a white feather. I fish pretty fast and cover a lot of water. I’ve already been seeing a lot of bait up shallow and a few shad that looked like they were trying to spawn. Look for a heavy shad spawn this month in the main lake. I like a white 1/2-oz. spinnerbait, topwater poppers like the Rico, and I like to swim a white ChatterBait and a white Net Boy Baits Flipping Jig with a Zoom chunk on a shad spawn. May is great month on Jackson.”
