Lake Blackshear Fishing Report – March 2019

GON Staff | February 26, 2019

Blackshear: Level: 0.2 feet low. Temp: 55-60 degrees. Clarity: Dependent on any recent rain but was good as of Feb. 20.

Crappie: Brad McDaniel at Flint River Outdoors reports, “The crappie bite is just about to bust loose, but it will depend on the weather. Right now, they are being caught in about 15 feet of water with jigs and minnows. In a recent Peach State Crappie Club tournament, it took 10.57 pounds to win. The winners pulled jigs around channel edges. We have recently weighed in a 2-lb., 3-oz. crappie that was caught on a minnow. Hot jigs have been the Big Tex in a variety of colors with Lite Wire Heads and Sugar Bugs in a variety of colors. By the time this is read, depending on the weather, the spawn should be wide open, with them being found around the cypress trees.”

Catfish: Brad McDaniel at Flint River Outdoors reports, “Catfish are being caught on rod and reel, limb lines and trot lines. For flatheads, you want something alive on the bottom somewhere near or in the river channel. For channels, almost anything from cut bait, worms, rooster liver or stink bait on the bottom is working.

Bream: Brad McDaniel at Flint River Outdoors reports, “As this is being written, the bream bite is just trying to get going, but by the time it is read, it should be wide open. Crickets and worms are the way to go.”
