Lake Blackshear Fishing Report June 2014

GON Staff | May 28, 2014

Blackshear: Level: 0.1 feet below full pool. Temp: 75 degrees. Clarity: Heavy stain in the main lake, but the creeks are looking good.

Rusty Parker reports, “They are definitely hanging on the channel ledges in deep water. A great place to try is the west channel ledge of the main lake just north of Cedar Creek. They are hanging about 18 to 25 feet deep in about 28 feet of water. A few are still biting shooting docks. Use a 1/24-oz. chartreuse/pink/chartreuse or black/watermelon/chartreuse jig, and you should catch a few good ones.”

Rusty reports, “I have had a lot of reports that the bream are biting fairly well. I haven’t gotten on any big numbers, but the size of the bluegills have been the biggest I have ever seen come out of Lake Blackshear. I took a retired friend from Cairo about two weeks ago, and he said it’s one of the best fishing trips he had ever been on. We caught 24 huge ’gills.”
