Jackson: Level: 1 foot below full. Temp: High 80s to low 90s. Clarity: Slightly stained to clear.
Bass: Fair. Tournament angler Keith Dawkins reports, “Bass are sluggish. Start the day on shallow structure near deep water, and throw a Pop-R, a 1/2-oz. white buzzbait or a Spook. Once the sun gets up, concentrate on long points and deep docks. Flip the docks near river channels with a watermelon Trick Worm on a SpotSticker or a Texas-rigged u-tail worm. Make several casts to each dock, making sure to concentrate on posts and brushpiles you locate with your electronics. If you fish points, you can use an Alabama Rig, drop shot or Carolina rig to cover water. If neither of those work, try deep-water brushpiles with the drop shot or a spoon.”
