Lake Blackshear Fishing Report October 2014
Blackshear: Level: Full pool. Temp: Falling into the 70s. Clarity: Light stained.
Crappie: Rusty Parker reports, “Since the cooler weather is setting in, the crappie have started biting great. I went crappie fishing just a couple of days ago and didn’t think I would do that good but ended up with a limit of decent-sized crappie. All were fileting size but nothing to really brag about. I caught a few tightlining minnows in 16 feet of water out in front of the beach area but caught the majority pitching jigs over the top of structure. What surprised me was that this structure that a friend and I had placed a long time ago is in only 10 feet of water. As the jig came across this structure, the crappie would hit. I was using R.A.G. Fly jigs in the colors of chartreuse/pink/chartreuse and black/chartreuse/chartreuse. I talked with two other boats that said they ended up with their limits, also. The bite is gonna get a lot better with the cooler weather, and remember that this year is a draw-down year for Blackshear, which starts the first week of November and comes back up around mid December. I also got a few reports that the catfish are biting great out on the sand flats.”
