Lake Blackshear Fishing Report – October 2023

GON Staff | September 27, 2023

Blackshear: Level: Full at 237. Temp: Mid 70s. Clarity: Stained but pretty good for Blackshear standards.

Bass: Tournament angler Chris Gray reports, “The last couple weeks of cooler nights have the bass firing up. Shad have begun to move back into the sloughs and pockets all over the lake. The early morning topwater bite has been getting better, as well as the overall bite throughout the day. A Zoom Super Fluke or buzzbait will generate quality bites early around grass and lily pads. A consistent pattern throughout the day is a spinnerbait fished just under the water’s surface. Keep a rattletrap or a lipless crankbait rod within reach. The bass are starting to school, but they shut down almost as quickly as they fire up. There will be white bass, hybrids and maybe even a spotted bass or two mixed in with schools of largemouth. Once you see them start blowing up, get to them quick, fast and in a hurry. Of course, a Texas-rigged worm or creature bait fished around docks and cypress trees will always produce bites throughout the day. Good luck!”
