Lake Jackson Fishing Report – November 2007
Jackson: Level: 2.5 feet below full pool. Temp: 72-77 degrees. Clarity: Clear.
Bass: Good. “Fishing has been pretty good lately and should get even better with the cooler weather,” said Eric Perkins. “The topwater bite has been pretty strong down the lake with Sammys and Super Spook Jrs. calling up some magnum spots. A lot of people have been throwing a Net Boy Bait Screw Ball jig head with a green-pumpkin Trick Worm and killing the spots. I have been going in the creeks and bigger pockets and skipping a 1/2-oz. black/brown Net Boy Flipp’N Jig under docks for bigger fish. I’ve been doing some running-and-gunning with a crankbait and a white spinnerbait. I key on docks and walkways hard right now. November on Jackson can be great for big fish.” Guide Aaron Batson said the morning bite has been good throwing shallow-running crankbaits and spinnerbaits around wood in the very backs of the creeks and coves. “The baitfish are now shallow, and the fish have followed them in. A 3/8-oz. War Eagle spinnerbait with double willowleaf blades with a white skirt has been good. The crankbait I’m running is a Stanford Lures PUG in sour apple. I’m throwing it on blowdowns and dock posts. The 1/4-oz. white Net Boy Flipp’N Jig with a pearl Zoom Swimmin’ Chunk has still been catching them real good, too. During the middle of the day, run up either the South or Yellow river and flip the deep structure with a Net Boy 3/8-oz Flipp’N Jig in black or brown with a Zoom green-pumpkin Super Chunk.”
