Lake Jackson - Freshwater Fishing Report
Report is a little late, But Ari and Karl fished 6 hours out on Lake Jackson with me on Sunday and had a pretty darn good day. I believe final numbers were 16 bass boated and a few others missed. Bait of choice was wild shiners and it was a good choice for sure. The guys boated a couple bass that went three to four pounds with the big gal coming in just over six pounds.
Weather was great with a fair amount of wind, but was not bad at all as the day warmed up and the Dig in Anchor held the boat in place perfectly. Bass were relating heavily to structure, and that structure was sunken trees, if you tossed five feet short, you waited awhile for a hit, or didn't even get one. Big key was placing it very close to the trees and let the wild shiners swim along them on a float set about a foot deep. For the most part the bite was not aggressive as it typically has been, this day the bass would mouth the bait and swim some before it would really commit to it.
This required patience on our part where it seemed at times we were letting them have the bait for twenty seconds before we could set the hook, and with the circle hooks they were set perfect right in the corner of the mouth like they should be. The guys did a great job out there and we all had a blast.
