Lake Blackshear Fishing Report – March 2024

GON Staff | February 28, 2024

Blackshear: Level: 0.2 below 237. Temp: 59 degrees. Clarity: Still very muddy on the main lake and stained off the main lake.

Bass: Tournament angler Chris Gray reports, “March is the best month of the year to catch a big bass on Blackshear. This month, as the lake stabilizes and continues to warm up, big female bass will begin feeding heavily in preparation for the spawn. Target deeper cypress trees in 5 to 8 feet of water at the beginning of this month. With the water heavily stained due to the amount of rain recently, junebug or black with red flake are good colors to try with soft plastics. A Zoom Ole Monster worm or a Magnum Speed Worm are good baits to try for a big bite. A Colorado blade spinnerbait with one orange blade and one gold blade in chartreuse or chartreuse and white is a go to. As the water continues to warm, don’t be afraid to start throwing a frog around grass edges and lily pads. Toward the end of March, the first bass to spawn are normally down around Swift Creek. Bass will spawn around the base of the trees that have a sandy bottom around them. It took 24 pounds to win the Albany Bassin’ Buddies Tournament on Feb. 17, so it’s that time on Blackshear to go get a hook wet.”
