JACKSON LAKE IS FULL, STAINED & LOW 50’S

Bass fishing is fair. Bass can be found in or near deeper winter holding areas. Look at 15 to 20 feet to target for the deeper fish. Concentrate on points, humps, and bluff banks on the main river channel. Locations with deep rock will tend to hold concentrations of fish. The key to finding active fish is to find a group holding together or stay with the bait. Sunny rocks and docks will draw fish shallow when located adjacent to deep water. On a warm afternoon fish with deep running cranks like a Bandit or Shad Rap shallow on the rocks and out to deeper water. Some color in the water will also help to pull fish shallow. The colder the water, the more quality bass will be drawn to solar heated rocks, docks, and shallow stained water. Fish a Net Boy jig on deep water docks. Also fish 1/2 to 3/4 ounce Net Boy football jigs slowly through the deep water holding areas. Use brown or other natural color tipped with a brown or green pumpkin Super Chunk Jr. Shaky heads will also work on the docks and deep water structure. Rig them with trick, finesse worms and Senko’s. Slow down your presentations and fish a 1/8 ounce head. If the wind is blowing target deep water and use a ½ ounce or a ¾ ounce bullet weight for an advantage. Spoons are also picking up deep bass relating to bottom and bait. Use a subtle yo yo action just above the bottom.
