Lake Jackson

Accessible via North Monroe Street (US-27)
FL

Located just north of Tallahassee, Lake Jackson has been nationally known for its largemouth bass fishery. This lake has a high diversity of aquatic vegetation including hydrilla, eelgrass, and maidencane, which are the best habitats to fish for bass. Although large in size (4,000-acres), Lake Jackson is shallow with an average depth of about 7 feet and a maximum depth of 30 feet. A natural sink-hole, Lake Jackson periodically goes dry. There are 5 public boat ramps around the lake and one fish camp. When water levels are low, the best ramps to use on Lake Jackson are Jackson View Boat Landing, Sunset Landing and Crowder Road Landing.

Insider tip: The best bass fishing time of year is the spring through early summer (February through May).
