Blackburns Resort and Boat Rental Continues It’s Policy of Continuous Improvement Without Raising Prices.

August 20th, 2014

We want to reward our many repeat customers by making things better for them without charging them more. The new roof is just about finished on Cabin #12 and a new Sealy king mattress and box spring is to be installed in the Honeymoon Cabin #3 later this week. The lake level is dropping with heavy generation in the afternoon and evening and is now at 551.69. The surface temperature is rising again and is 87 degrees with the hot weather. The White bass have moved out of my favorite fishing spots but the walleye are still there. Bink is on the stripers and hybrids. Lake visibility is deteriorating just a bit but is still good. I am seeing very few crappie.

The New Roof on Cabin #12 Should be Finished Today. Looks good so far.

It Looks To Get Hot Next Week With Highs in the High 90’s

August 17th, 2014

This is an excellent time to get in some boating before fall. The lake level is 552 and it looks like they are trying to keep it there with little generation despite the hot weather where they sell the electricity. I like this level. People are sure catching a lot of Stripers, Hybrid Stripers, White Bass and Walleye. Mostly in the early morning. Trolling umbrellas and vertical jigging spoons for Stripers and Hybrids, trolling crank baits and jigging spoons for walleye trolling rooster tails and spoons are best for white bass. The kids are sure having fun playing in the big pool with slide. Wish you were here. If you are not staying at Blackburns Resort and Boat rental you are paying too much.

Everything is about the same except fishing is getting better and better. White Bass, Hybrids, Stripers and walleye are the Best Bite. Early morning before sunrise is the best time.

Beautiful Weather Here On Norfork Lake At Blackburns Resort and Boat rental

August 12th, 2014

The lake level is 552.59 and dropping with seven hours of heavy generation in the afternoons and evenings. Surface temperature is still in the mid 80’s and the thermocline is still at 30-feet. Bink is on the big stripers and is catching them on jigging spoons. I went diving yesterday morning and the walleye have returned to the brush at 30-35 feet on the main lake. They usually do this in September. The visibility is also getting better with no signs of algae bloom. I got two very nice walleye, several white bass and two crappie on one dive. Conditions are very good. This has been an excellent year for spearfishing and looks to get even better when the crappie come back in. Blackburns still has two openings for Labor day and would welcome your visit. You can go out early fishing and take the family on the boat for the whole rest of the day. Good combination. The lake in general is at the best level, water temperature and clarity that I have seen in years and I am out everyday. Wish you were here. You will not pay too much.

We could use some rain and the lake is still dropping but is still in excellent condition. Got a few crappie diving this morning and white bass. Fishing conditions are the same with the best bite being before sunrise. They seem to quit shortly after 7-Am. Get out early.
