Lake Blackshear Fishing Report – May 2019

GON Staff | April 30, 2019

Blackshear: Level: 0.1 feet low. Temp: 75 degrees. Clarity: Muddy.

Bass: Brad McDaniel with Flint River Outdoors reports, “Bass are mostly postspawn and are mostly being caught on dark plastics, ChatterBaits, swimbaits and spinnerbaits.”

Bream: Brad McDaniel with Flint River Outdoors reports, “This bite was very late coming on this spring but is wide open now. They are being caught shallow around the trees and grass, mainly on worms and crickets. They will continue to bed on the new and the full moons for awhile.”

Crappie: Brad McDaniel with Flint River Outdoors reports, “The shallow spawn bite is still working but starting to wane a little. As temps continue to rise, they will be moving back to deeper water. They are being caught just about any way you want to do it; minnows and jigs pitched around trees, shooting docks and trolling. So far here at Flint River Outdoors in April, we have weighed in crappie that went 2-lbs., 8.5-ozs., 2-lbs., 10-ozs., 2-lbs., 14-ozs and the new lake record at 3-lbs., 9.28-ozs.”

Catfish: Brad McDaniel with Flint River Outdoors reports, “Catfish are always able to be caught at Lake Blackshear. During high muddy conditions like we have now, that is the main species being caught. Baits of choice are worms, liver or small bream.”
