Lake Jackson Fishing Report November 2008
Jackson: Level: 1.1 feet below full pool. Temp: Low to mid 70s. Clarity: The main lake is pretty clear, but the rivers are heavily stained.
Bass: Eric Perkins’ top baits this month will be a jig and a crankbait. “I’ll just be covering water,” said Eric. “Fish are up shallow, going into creeks. Look on secondary points.” Look for fish in the 7- to 10-foot range. Eric likes to skip docks with a Net Boy Baits Flipp’n Jig. Eric likes a brown/black with a green-pumpkin Zoom Chunk. Good crankbaits include a No. 7 Shad Rap and 200 and 300 series Bandits. A 1/2-oz. Rat-L-Trap in chartreuse/black, silver or gold/chartreuse are good baits to keep around. If water temperatures fall into the mid 50s, expect fish to migrate toward their winter haunts. Eric makes a transition to fishing 10 and 12 feet deep on deep, rocky cuts in the main lake. When fishing a jig, he likes a Net Boy Baits Finesse Jig in green craw. “With the crankbait, just parallel the banks,” said Eric. “Just stay on main-lake bluff banks and points.” Look for a mixed bag of spots and largemouths doing this.
