Fished 10/27.  Beautiful day and about 15 boats out.  We trolled for muskie for 3 hours with no luck.  Spotted walleye on the Humminbird.  Water was very flat, almost no wind.  Talked to some other fisherman who had some luck with crappie (small), a few bass and an 18" muskie.

I will be going to Shabbona Tuesday Oct 9th. I have never fished there before.

I don't have a boat so I will be shore fishing for Crappie.

What are some good spots to fish from shore In the general area of the boat launch, or any other good spots.

Thanks.
