Lake Blackshear Fishing Report – August 2009

GON Staff | July 29, 2009

Blackshear: Level: Full pool. Temp: 70s. Clarity: Good stain.

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.

Slow. Rusty Parker said to fish dock lights at night with either jigs or minnows.

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.
