Lake Jackson Fishing Report September 2015
Jackson: Level: 0.6 feet above full pool. Temp: 87-90 degrees. Clarity: Stained up the rivers and clearer near the dam.
Bass: Tournament angler Aaron Batson reports, “Fish the clearer water for more bites until the river areas get more stable. Good-sized spots are being caught on 1/4-oz. Net Boy Baits Screwball heads with Zoom Finesse worms in watermelon and pumpkin colors. You can also throw moving baits, like Fish Head Spins and small jerkbaits, like a Pointer 78.” Keith Dawkins reports, “Bass fishing is slow right now on Jackson, but it should improve if we get some cooler nights in September. The first of the month, fish early or late in the day. Concentrate on points and humps 15 to 20 feet deep early in the month. Look for long points near deep water. Fish these areas with Carolina-rigged Zoom lizards, drop-shot finesse worms, Bandit 300 crankbaits and Alabama Rigs. Other areas to concentrate on are deep docks on the main lake with watermelon Trick Worms on SpotSticker jig heads, or flip with 3/8-oz. green jigs with Zoom chunk trailers. If you want to avoid the heat earlier in the month, fish lighted boat docks with Shad Raps and dark-colored u-tail worms at night. As we move toward October, the water should begin to cool off some. Concentrate on shallower parts of the points, and you can begin to move back into the pockets off these points with the same baits, as well as buzzbaits and 1/4-oz. double willowleaf spinnerbaits. Don’t be afraid to move from point to point quickly until you find an area where the shad are moving. Late in the afternoon, hit seawalls with Pop-Rs and buzzbaits. Also look out for schools of spotted bass out in open water on overcast days.”
