Lake Blackshear Fishing Report March 2011

GON Staff | February 23, 2011

Blackshear: Level: 0.2 feet below full pool. Temp: Low 60s. Clarity: Heavy stain.

Bass: Very good. Jim Murray Jr. said it’s been taking sacks weighing in the mid-20s to win at Blackshear recently. The fish are staging in ponds and stump rows, and they are biting lipless crankbaits. Jim likes a 1/2-oz. Red Eye Shad in some combination of red and gold. The bigger fish can be caught pitching a CBT flipping jig in black/blue with a Zoom Super Chunk to cypress trees in 2 to 4 feet of water. Jim said the fish should move to the beds in mid to late March. Then he’ll fish either a Zoom lizard or a Senko on grassbeds and around the bases of cypress in less than 3 feet of water. Green pumpkin and black/red are the best colors. The best bedding areas are in the backwaters up the river. Fish as slow as you can.
