Lake Jacksboro near Jacksboro, Texas
The largemouth bass found here are VERY abundant but very few of them are above 16 inches. If you still want to fish for them I would recommend using crankbaits, Texas rigged soft plastics, and buzzbaits. During the summer most of the bass are caught near the thermocline (about 25ft deep). Crappies are caught in the northern cove near the dam. Jigs and minnows are the best for crappies. The northern mid lake arm of the reservoir are where the catfish are. Live fish, dead fish, shrimp, and worms work well for catfish. Good luck fishing!
