Lake Blackshear Fishing Report – June 2019

GON Staff | May 28, 2019

Blackshear: Level: Full pool. Temp: Low 80s. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Brad McDaniel at Flint River Outdoors reports, “Bass are postspawn and relating to cover, like grass and lily pads, and structure, like wood, docks, the railroad trestle, bridges and rip-rap. The ticket for bass on Blackshear is something brand new or something really old. Think outside the box, and try to show them something different. Obviously the biggest challenge coming up will be the heat. Early morning and late afternoon would be the prime times. During the day, look for shady areas, like docks or under bridges.”

Bream: Brad McDaniel at Flint River Outdoors reports, “Bream have provided the hottest bite lately. They are being found shallow on beds. The hottest bait has been worms and crickets, but artificials like Beetle Spins and flys are working, also. Look for the mayflies, and hang on when you find them!”

Crappie: Brad McDaniel at Flint River Outdoors reports, “They are still being caught but are getting harder to find. They are scattered all over the place from shallow to back out deeper related to brush and bait. They are being caught with minnows and jigs.”

Catfish: Brad McDaniel at Flint River Outdoors reports, “They never quit biting at Blackshear. Size your tackle and your bait to what size range you would like to target.”
