Jackson: Level: 2.6 feet below full pool. Temp: 50 to 58 degrees. Clarity: Stained.
Bass: Good. Aaron Batson reports, “This will be a big transition month. With much warmer weather lately, begin to look for fish to move to the back half of spawning coves. You can just about throw any shallow-running bait (spinnerbaits, crankbait or swimbait) and catch active fish that are feeding heavily for the spawn. The spawn might come much sooner than normal with higher-than-average water temps. Soft plastics like tubes and lizards will work well on bedding fish toward the end of the month. Dipping the bait in JJ’s Magic will help increase the bites, a little chartreuse on the tail will help a bunch.”
