July is historically a decent month to fish topwater early in the day and late in the evening to load the boat with nice bass. But, not so much this year. As spring and winter rains filled Lake Jackson to the brim, it turned a local farm pond into a reservoir. Fish per acre is how a lake is judged on its health, and when you double the size of the water, that gives the fish lots of places to hide.
OK, so we got 20+ inches of rain this spring, and it has filled Lake Jackson to the brim, LITERALLY!
Rain, rain go away! WAIT!!! After a 12 year drought, we’re going to change the way the song goes. Like…. rain, rain come again today and stay.
If your looking for some freshwater action in or around Tallahassee, and want a double digit Largemouth, then Lake Jackson is the place to be in April.
HURRAY!!! Lake Jackson will still be up this year in March. Although water levels are a bit below normal, you can still maneuver around the lake with little difficulty. And for those of you that are familiar with March fishing on Lake Jackson, well need I say more!
