Lake Blackshear Fishing Report November 2016
Blackshear: Level: Full pool. Temp: 73 degrees. Clarity: Stained.
Bass: Very good. Tournament angler Stephen Birchfield reports, “This month is the best month of the year to get out on Lake Blackshear! The dropping water temps are going to start a feeding frenzy, and you want to be there when it happens. Head to the backs of creeks and bigger pockets and look for schooling fish busting the top from sunup to sundown. For the majority of the year this type of activity will be white bass, but right now there is a good chance largemouth are mixed in. Start with the smallest white Rooster Tail you can throw. If you find a school with some largemouth, switch to a chrome Rat-L-Trap or a pearl-white Fluke Junior. The absolute best way to catch fish this time of year is with a Flash Mob Junior rigged with Super Fluke Juniors with paddle tails. Rig up a medium-heavy-action rod with 20-lb. mono. Sixty five largemouth were caught in a three-hour time frame doing this. As the water temp continues to cool later this month, focus on sunny flats near deeper water. I try my best to stay within casting distance of deeper water. If the bite slows down late in the month, try a red Rat-L-Trap, and yo-yo it through the abundant grass on lake Blackshear.”
