Lake Shelbyville
Fishing Report

As most of you know I am laid up with major shoulder surgery. I had to cancel all my spring guide trips and won’t be able to fish for some time.

I am however helping a new guide get going and doing some booking of trips for him and a couple others on Lake Shelbyville. All are very qualified and have been fishing this lake for many years.If interested give me a call or e-mail me and I can get you set up for some great fishing action.

Fishing Report September 24-30

The temps are all over the place cooling off then heating back up like summer. This will come to an end very shortly and fall will set in. With the cool weather we had a week or so ago this triggered the lake into fall turnover. This will last until water temps settle into the low sixties.

With turnover the fish move shallow as all the deep water is full of nasty junk coming up off the bottom. The crappie have left their deep mainlake summer homes and started moving their way to the backs of the lakes larger coves. It is time to get out a slip bobber and either a jig or lively minnow below it. Set this at about four-feet and throw at every standing timber you see. You will get a hungry crappie off just about every tree but you need to keep moving to get enough larger fish to satisfy your limit.

The white bass has also moved shallow and will be up on the lakes largest flats pushing shad to the shore and feeding heavy on them. An in-line spinner like the one we make will run right under the surface and this bait catches about everything that swims. Otherwise a pair of jigs tied right above each other and worked just under the surface as well will do the trick.

You can go to our on-line store and get these spinners or just stop in at Chip’s Marine.

If you want to get in the boat with one of our guides just give us a call at 217-840-1221 cell or shoot us an email at SteveWelch@Mchsi.com.
