Fishing Report for Shelbyville November 30- December 6

Lake Shelbyville Best Bet… Crappie

Printable Version

The water temps have fallen to the magic sub fifty mark and we are smoking them. The last three days we have boated nearly 600 crappie. We had our four man limit of 60 in just 2 1/2 hours today and they were just coming in as fast as can be.

We are fishing up on the north end around Bo-Woods over to Wilborn on brush in the ten-foot range. The fish are bunched up and you can catch fifty or more from just one spot. This is what I have been waiting for all year.

We are using my 12ft. BnM BGJPs with one of my 3/32oz. Deep Ledge Jigs and fishing just off bottom and holding it very still or swimming it over the pile. Both ways are catching fish. If you jig it up and down the small fish will jump on it and we are catching a ton of them.

We are using Midsouth tubes in some variation of chartreuse.

The weather patterns are that we get a few nice days then rain or snow so we are scheduling trips then having to cancel due to weather but this next couple weeks I have December 2,3,7,8,9,10,11,13 open then I will be shutting down until March. I need to get ready for the upcoming fishing shows. So better get in on this while you can.
