Lake Blackshear Fishing Report October 2013
Blackshear: Level: 0.2 feet below full pool. Temp: 77-79 degrees. Clarity: Clear.
Crappie: Rusty Parker reports, “One fisherman said he has been doing fairly well pitching around dock lights. My friend said he and his partner have been doing well pitching a R.A.G. Fly Jig with a chartreuse head, pearl-white body and a chartreuse tail in the 1/24-oz. size. The chartreuse/pink/chartreuse is also doing great around dock lights. I haven’t talked to anyone about how the daytime bite is doing, but a few have said it seems like the crappie are finally staging on the channel ledges like they usually do during the fall on Blackshear. The crappie bite should pick up big time by the end of next week. I think the tight-line method is the best way to go this time of the year on Blackshear.”
Catfish: Rusty reports, “The catfish have been doing excellent for a while now. Get some peanuts, and let them spoil in water for a couple of days. You will then have one of the best catfish attractants around. The fall bite is just around the corner.”
