Lake Blackshear Fishing Report – February 2009

GON Staff | January 27, 2009

Blackshear: Level: Full pool. Temp: 46-49 degrees. Clarity: Good color, just a tinge of stain.

Bass: Good. Ernie Broughton reports: “We had some good catches in our last tournament, including a couple of 7-pounders. I had 9 pounds, and we caught them all on Carolina rigs on the railroad trestle. The trestle also produced some fish on a drop-shot rig.” Look for bass to move up this month on docks and trees. Use spinnerbaits, jig ’n pigs and worms.

Good. Rusty Parker reports: “They are biting fairly good. We ended up with 31 yesterday. They’re still deep on the channel ledges. I was tight-lining with minnows in 34 feet of water about 6 to 7 feet off the bottom. They have plenty of eggs, though. I caught them on jigs white/green/white. If it stays kinda warm, they’ll start spawning on the full moon in February. They’re close to the creek mouths right now. Collins Branch, Cedar Creek, you’ll catch some over the channels, but they’re suspended.”
