Jackson: Level: 0.8 above full pool. Temp: High 70s to low 80s. Clarity: Clear to slight stain.
Bass: Tournament angler Keith Dawkins reports, “As we move into June, the bass on Jackson should start moving toward their deeper, summertime areas or at least onto flats near those deeper points and drops. Start your mornings out with 1/2-oz. white buzzbaits or Whopper Ploppers near wood and rocky cover in deep pockets. Pop-Rs will work, as well, and the spots often seem to like them better, while the largemouth often prefer the buzzbaits. As the sun gets up, concentrate on points and flats near deep water using Carolina-rigged Zoom U-Tales, Bandit 300 crankbaits and Alabama rigs. Flipping rocks with Texas-rigged lizards or creature baits is always a great way to pick up some fish, especially once the sun comes up. Toward the end of the month, look for deep schools of spots with your electronics, and hit them with finesse worms rigged on drop shots.”
