Lake Jackson Fishing Report – September 2006
Jackson: Level: Down 1.2 feet. Temp: 88 degrees. Clarity: Pretty clear, should start to stain some.
Bass: Tough. “There’s three- to four-foot visibility — it’s clear — and the big worms and jigs never turned on,” said Aaron Batson. “It might be fixing to change some since we’ve had some rain and could pull fish shallow.” He’s been using 12-lb. line, and his Carolina-rig leaders are 8-lb. test. “I’ve even been throwing some lead-head, Spot-Sticker-type jigs if you can believe that,” said Aaron. “I’m not getting any kicker bites this way.” Aaron said if the water will muddy up the fish will lock down on dock posts and blowdowns. “They’ll get a lot more predictable,” said Aaron. “I’ll go back to flipping a big worm or jig in 10 feet of water or less. I like a 1/2-oz. jig. I like a black jig with about two red strands in it. I’d key on main-lake points, but move a little shallower into that eight- to 10-foot range.” Aaron will also start cranking a chartreuse-and-blue-colored Norman’s DLN in the same areas.
