Lake Jackson Fishing Report November 2018
Jackson: Level: 5 feet below full. Temp: 68-70 degrees. Clarity: Stained to clear.
Bass: Tournament angler Brian Lee reports, “November is one of the best months to bass fish on Jackson. The shad are starting to move into the creeks and pockets. Topwater early in the mornings around any cover or isolated cover will produce. Keep an eye out for schooling fish as the shad are making the move to creeks and pockets. Topwater baits of choice would be a Pop-R, Rapala Skitter Prop, Spooks, Torpedos, something of this nature. Shad colors are the color of choice. A Spook around shallow humps and in the pockets are producing some quality largemouth and spotted bass. Shallow, rocky points with a variety of baits will yield some fish, as well. A 1/4-oz. double willowleaf spinnerbaits in white or white/chartreuse with gold or white blades are catching some fish, as well. A-rigs are catching some, too. A 3/8- to 1/2-oz. black/blue or green-pumpkin jig fished around docks, rocks and rails will be a way to catch fish all winter. Late November and into December will bring cooler water temps, pushing fish tighter up on ditches and deeper drops. Use your electronics to locate these fish, and drop a Flex-it or Hopkins spoon down to them. A Fish Head Spin can be dropped or cast to these fish, as well. Some hefty bags are always caught on Jackson in the wintertime, so bundle up, and get in on the action.”
