Lake Jackson 5-6-2012

Post by CoastalPirate »

Got on Jackson from Crowder Rd around 7 am. Estimated Water temp 75. Partly sunny. Water depth was extremely skinny..im talking 2 feet at launch, 3 feet in the middle and about 5 in some canals around Miller's Landing. Weeds everywhere....but so are the fish.Caught majority of bass off of weed edges around Miller's landing. Hooked up around 8 and continued till 12. I ended up with 7 bass and 1 bowfish, friend left with 4 bass heaviest in the boat was 2lb plus. In boat 2, friends caught 10 bass total 3lb plus being the heaviest. Was probably one of the best days of fishing since I started consistently 3 years ago! :beer: :beer:

Nice fish! My dad and I launched out of the same spot yesterday at daylight. Threw buzzbaits, had 4-5 strikes but no hookups. Switched to plugs and landed 13-14 fish up to 2.5lb in the next few hours on those shallow grass beds. Place is ate up with nice healthy looking bass right now. Surprising amount of fish in 1-1.5' of water

Nice report, I went yesterday after work from 6pm to 8 and caught 5 weighting up to 3lb as well. Water level is very low pretty much have to rely on trolling motor to get you around. Most of my fish came off of a red watermelon stick worm with small weight and dead sticking it around deeper water(when ya can find it) and 1 on a spro frog. Was a great little short trip on the water until I had to load the boat back on the trailer by myself when the trailer is never under the water

Nice report! I have wanted to fish Jackson for a while now but just never have. Sounds like they are biting pretty good.
