Spillway fishing is good for muskie. In aproximatly 35 casts I had 6 or 7 follows. 3 fish in a very short amount of time and helped a local with a 45" release. Also helped land the biggest Gar I have ever seen caught out of the spillway. All fish on Wildeye coming over the 1st step below the water line. Lazy follows were common, however, u could get them back intrested by dropping it off the ledge and bumping it back over the second.

Foggy, The end of May through the end of June is historically the best time for walleyes on this lake. I usually fish here every June, in correlation with the shad spawn. We pull cranks and worm harnesses on flats near river channels and do quite well. The white bass generally start busting the surface in mid to late summer. Follow the weekly report given by Steve Welch, a local guide, at larrysfishinghole.com or lakeshelbyvilleguide.com. Tight lines.

Not a report, just a question. Can anyone out there give a recent report on how the Crappie and White Bass fishing is lately? Also Interested in LMBass and Walleye. Thanks! Cool

Fished Saturday 4/26 for bass. Lake is on fire! Lots of guys on the north end limiting out in crappies. You will find them shallow with warmer water or on ledges/secondary points with wood. Caught several while bass fishing. Bass are almost ready to move onto the spawning flats. Caught many males with rattle traps and some nice females with a jig on deeper ledges/river channels close to where the males were. Also landed a nice musky in the process and a few big white bass starting to push up on windy flats. Get out now! Smile

Was down there a couple of days ago and there wasn't much to report. The discharge has been reduced, and that typically means slow fishing. Saw some crappie being caught, and saw a guy foul hook a 36" Musky. No walleye being caught, and that is what I was there for. Things may have have changed as far as the fishing goes, but I just checked the discharge rate and it still remains unchanged and is below the average for this time of year. Need some rain to get them to increase the flow. Good luck.
