Lake Shelbyville
Fishing Report

The Corp seams to be done pulling the lake as we are right at summer pool. We have been under a cool spell with days of light rain. This makes the crappie harder to get since they really key in on finding their food by sight. Much bigger strike zone on sunny days. Plus this concentrates the fish in very thick brush. We have been getting our three man limit of 45 before noon every day with sun on cloudy days it takes longer but we are still getting them.

We are still using a slip bobber rig with a lively minnow set at about 15 feet deep and fishing out on the ends of down trees. Catch a few then move on.

The white bass have been biting very well this past week with the overcast. They are right on the bank with wind blowing into them. We are throwing blade baits or twisters with a jig. On sunny days we are catching them on jigging spoons my Candystriper or my Deep Ledge Jig fished vertically up and down on ledges in about twenty-feet of water.

I still have August 28,29,31 open and plenty in September.
