Lake Blackshear Fishing Report – June 2024

GON Staff | May 29, 2024

Blackshear: Level: 0.2 below 237. Temp: 80 degrees. Clarity: Light stain from Cedar Creek south, gradually a heavier stain above Cedar Creek and as you go up the river. 

Bass: Tournament angler Chris Gray reports, “Bass are in the postspawn phase and are starting to go into their summer patterns. Early in the morning, I’ve been able to capitalize on a good topwater bite. It’s been really important to take advantage of this bite. I almost always exclusively throw a buzzbait. Any color will catch fish, but white or black are great colors. Try to focus on seawalls and grass that have deeper water close-by. After the topwater bite slows, I like to focus on deeper cypress trees and docks. The bass love to get in the shade that these types of structures provide. A junebug Zoom Speed Worm is my go-to bait. You can also start catching fish on ledges dragging an Ol’ Monster Worm around. As it gets hotter and hotter, the bite will get tougher, but they’re biting pretty good right now.”

Bream: Chris Gray reports, “The Blackshear bream are biting really well. A lot of them are on beds, and if you can find them, you can catch a mess pretty quick. Most of the shellcracker have already bedded, but the bluegill are all hands on deck. Target sandy areas around cypress trees. If you can find some mayflies, that’s a plus. Good areas to try are behind the bridge at Booger Bottom, Cedar Creek or Boy Scout Slough. Good luck!”
