I was thinking about taking the kids to Carl Blackwell early Friday morning. I havent seen any reports on it from notebookers. Is there any info anyone can give me on it? Not looking for free honey hole but rather god areas and safe boating areas. Thank You.

I can try to help you out. The water temp was 79.3 degrees in the main lake and 84.5 in the backs of coves yesterday. South and west ends of the lake are muddy, the main lake is stained to clear. When running you need to stay wide of all of the points. If you go west of the buoy line you should idle and stay closer to the south bank. The north bank is full of trees just under the surface. The hybrid fishermen have been on the long point that is about 300-400 yards west of the spillway and on the long point on the north bank that is straight north of the crappie dock. I haven't heard how they have been doing, but I am sure they are catching some. The crappie fisherman have been tied up to the tower on the dam. I am sure they are catching plenty of dinks with a few decent ones mixed in. I troll 1/2 oz traps on the north bank for saugeye. I usually don't try for them this time of year, but you might bump into some if you give it a try. I usually catch them from 3-8ft of water on the flats.

Thank You JW. We will give it a whirl and go Eat at Joe's if we cant catch fish. Either way the kids will love it.

JW. Thanks for the report. That's another lake I've not heard of, much less been to. WHen I see that you've put up 3,736 posts, it just blows my mind how much experience and knowledge has been transferred through this forum - for years and years. Makes me wonder if your first posts were like mine are today - like "anybody out there know how to fish?" and "Why do my shad die?". :-)
The more you practice, the luckier you get.

I think I could talk all day about what I have learned from the great folk on this forum. There is a lot of fishing knowledge in this mix of people. I have made some pretty good friends on this site too! I post a lot of bologna on here just to razz some people and have fun. That's why my post count is up there. Blackwell is my home lake. My grandparents had a spot out there so I have been going to that lake since I was 5 years old. I lived out there full time for a year when I was in 4th grade. Had a tin boat with a 9 horse on it, and I would bait "yo yo's" almost every night and check them the next morning before school during the spring. I also spent a lot of time walking the banks with an in-line spinner tied on. I have a spot out there now and my boat is parked 40 yards from the ramp. My son and I spend a lot of time on the water at Blackwell. Also, I have learned stuff about that lake that I didn't know from some of the great people that frequent this site. Come on over and give it a whirl if you get the bug!
