Lake Blackshear Fishing Report – August 2009
Blackshear: Level: Full pool. Temp: 70s. Clarity: Good stain.
Bass: Good. Wayne Geoff caught a new tournament-record sack July 18 with a 27-lb., 12-oz. limit anchored by the big fish which weighed 7-lbs., 9-ozs. Ernie Broughton said there has been a decent topwater bite over treetops, around grassbeds and lily pads with popping baits like a Pop-R. The worm bite around the edges of the grassbeds and up against cypress trees has been pretty good. The fish are in 3 to 6 feet of water. Throw a Texas or Carolina rig. Black with red glitter is a good color.
Crappie: Slow. Rusty Parker said to fish dock lights at night with either jigs or minnows.
Bream: Good. With the crappie bite slow, Rusty has been cruising the banks for good messes of keeper-sized bluegill. He said bridge rip-rap in about 2 feet of water has been producing. He caught 20 fish in 30 minutes on crickets. Most of the fish were bluegills, but there were a few shellcrackers and warmouths mixed in.
