    LAKE JACKSON IS .62 FEET OVER FULL, CLEAR, 80 S


    Bass fishing is fair. The top water bite is fair early but shuts off around mid morning. Use a 1/4 or ounce spinnerbait in white or white/chart. Other colors are also working but these two seem to be the favorites among anglers. Isolated stumps or any isolated cover in the small variety is your best bet while using the blade. Several casts at each target will be necessary and using a slow retrieve will aid in the process. Another good technique to try is slow swimming a pumpkin/chart u tale worm around the same type of cover. These bass seem to get on the slow baits a little better than the faster moving ones. Try different colors as well. Stay on the main rivers and away from the back of coves and small creeks. The spots seem to be more aggressive while working the points while the largemouth tend to be holding tight to the cover. Try deep water docks but don't stay on them too long if the bite isn't happening. The ounce Rat L Traps are catching a few but it is still a little early and too warm for the lipless cranks to be real productive. Use pig n jigs in blue or black but be sure to downsize for the better bite. Use the ounce or smaller in all blue. This is catching the larger bass while slow rolling it right along the bottom.
