Lake Jackson Fishing Report October 2009

GON Staff | September 29, 2009

Jackson: Level: 0.7 feet below full pool. Temp: Mid 70s. Clarity: Heavy stain.

Bass:
“We were hit hard by the recent storms, and the lake filled up well above full pool,” said Eric Perkins. “But now they have the gates open, and the water is pouring out. I would say it was at least 2 feet low yesterday (Sept. 27) and falling. The lake has a heavy stain, but the bite was good this past weekend on the falling water. The fish are moving in shallow and can be caught a number of different ways.” Eric likes to work a white, 1/2-oz. spinnerbait around any cover, especially laydowns and docks. “It’s all about the bait in the fall, and the bait is moving up shallow and into the creeks and pockets,” said Eric. “We are also cranking small crankbaits, like a 1/4-oz. chrome Rat-L-Traps or Spro Aruku Shads and even Shad Raps and flat baits. And as usual we are always looking for the flipping bite, and it’s been good up shallow in the trash and blowdowns with a black-and-blue Net Boy Baits Flipp’N Jig and a Crazy Bug by Wackem Crazy Baits. Colors will vary depending on the water color, but black emerald and green pumpkin are hard to beat. Don’t pass up any shallow blowdown or wood in October.”
