Lake Jackson Fishing Report May 2014
Jackson: Level: 1.5 feet above full pool. Temp: Mid to upper 70s. Clarity: Clear on the main lake; light stain in the rivers.
Bass: Good. Eric Perkins reports, “Fishing is good with fish on the bed and some coming off. The shad spawn is on! For that I like a white 3/8- or 1/2-oz. spinnerbait with nickel willowleaf blades. Also try a white ChatterBait and an Alabama Rig. Rip-rap and seawalls in the creeks are hard to beat. The shad spawn only lasts a little while, but it’s fun. May is an excellent topwater month, and I’m running-and-gunning several different baits. I like popping-style baits like a white Zell Pop and a Rico as well as prop-style baits, also in white. After the sun gets high, I go back to skipping a black/ brown Net Boy Baits flipping jig under shady docks. And throwing a white fluke shallow. May is a great month to target aggressive spotted bass on Jackson.”
