Lake Jackson Fishing Report October 2013
Jackson: Level: 1 foot above full pool. Temp: 77 degrees. Clarity: Clear in the main lake and a light stain in the river.
Bass: Tournament fisherman Eric Perkins reports, “Fishing is pretty tough right now. Your best bet would be a nighttime trip. I was on the water Sept. 19, and the fish were pretty slow. Even my topwater bite has died. As bad as I hate to admit it, your best bet is to slow down with some sort of soft plastic, like a shaky-head Trick Worm. Look for brush off long points or humps or around and under deeper docks. As it cools down, the bait will go shallow, and I think the bite will pick right back up. We just need some cool nights. In October, the crankbait bite should pick up. I like the Spro Aruku Shad and a chrome/blue Rat-L-Trap in 1/4-oz., as well as a Spro Little John. I just cover water fairly fast. The topwater bite might pick back up as well when it cools off. I got on a pretty good bite last October skipping a Net Boy Baits 1/2-oz. jig with a Zoom Pro Chunk under floating docks. Don’t hesitate to skip docks if the sun is high and bright. We catch a lot of good fish doing that as well.”
