Lake Blackshear Fishing Report February 2019

GON Staff | January 25, 2019

Blackshear: Level: Full pool. Temp: 54 degrees. Clarity: Stained to muddy.

Bass: Stephen Birchfield Jr., coach of the Brewton-Parker College bass fishing team, reports, “The bass fishing this month is going to start to heat up at Lake Blackshear. The bass right now have been a little hard to catch with the extremely muddy water. Currently, hitting the base of cypress trees near the main lake seems to be the most consistent way to catch some good size fish. Try throwing any of your soft plastics up on these trees, with watermelon candy being the color of choice. If you find some green grass, try slow-rolling a chartreuse single Colorado blade spinnerbait. As the water clears later in the month, expect the shallow bite to really turn on. Late February and early March, they seem to pull up and congregate around isolated grass patches all throughout the lake. Don’t be afraid to go look for some early spawners late in the month, as well. Every year in late February somebody catches a big bag in the back of one of the creeks. Have fun, and be safe in the water!”
