Lake Jackson Fishing Report – October 2023

GON Staff | September 27, 2023

Jackson: Level: 0.8 feet below 528. Temp: Low to mid 70s. Clarity: Clear except for boat-traffic stain on the weekends.

Bass: Tournament angler Willie McMullen reports that October is a transition month with bass following bait into the creeks and coves. A good pattern is to start at the mouth of a cove and work the deep sides all the way to the back. Cast a Gunfish or popper bait to seawalls early. Willie got a 3.84-lb. spot on a Gunfish off a seawall the last Sunday in September, and that will continue to be a good pattern all month. When the sun gets up, hit docks with a shaky head and jig. Flip or pitch jigs in browns and greens with a green-pumpkin Super Chunk trailer and green-pumpkin worms on a shaky head under every dock you come to while working around a cove. Pay attention to where the fish are located in the cove or creek. You can set up a pattern based on the position of the fish in the creeks and coves. It is usually consistent in other similar coves. As the water cools, the very backs of coves will get better and better. Hit every piece of cover, like wood, rocks, seawalls and docks, all the way to the very back of the coves.
