Thanks for the advice.  Steering cable broke in boat today.  Hopefully I can have it ready to go by next weekend and fill a cooler or 2 with some white bass.

Hey cat man r u fishing from a boat or shore??? If from boat stay on the northern end of the lake n either look at ur fishing unit, if u have contours of the lake, find flats anywhere on the northern end of the lake n fish the drop offs of the flats ESPECIALLY if there's even just a little bit of wind blowing into them the windier the better... I like to drift a crappie rig just off the bottom n not uncommon to pull doubles up every time u come across the school. If u don't have a contour chip in ur fishing unit buy a fishing hot spots map of the lake n that will also show u plenty of flats

they usually sell those at the Walmart down there or at the local bait shops

Thinking of making the trip south on Friday  to try Shelbyville for white bass, any reports or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Any one have any info on the lake conditions? Haven't seen a report in a few days. Any walleye being caught? When is a good time to come down to catch some Crappie?

We always fish from the bank and throw 1/8 or 1/4 oz orange jigs with grubs on them it all depends on the current. Sometimes even a 3/8 when the water is really high. 3 inch Chartreuse or Christmas lights have always been the ticket for us. I have learned some new stuff from fishing my local river and want to try it below the spillway but to many people would make that a problem I think.

I have fished the spillway at Shelbyville plenty and have hooked and caught many muskie and as a matter of fact I hooked and lost one in January. We however are always fishing for walleye and our encounters are by chance. I have seen guys throw heavy plugs, jerkbaits, and bucktails and never seen someone actually catch one. Im sure that they do Ive just never seen them. They are there and in good numbers from what ive seen so good luck and hope you land a big one.

CONDITIONS
Partly Sunny

AIR TEMP
76° - 80º F

WATER TEMP
61° - 65° F
Got on the water at about 7:30am - water lever was listed as about 4 to 5 feet below Summer pool, seemed to be even lower. Didn't need to travel far from the launch site - on North end of lake fish were really biting from about 10 feet and higher. We had several strikes right at the boat. Were able to catch our limit within 3 hours. Several colors worked well - black and green skirt, orange, pink and light green. Minnows we used were rather large (listed as "medium sized"). Great day when you need to throw back 10inch fish over and over.

Lot of guys have been hitting spillway hard. I been down for a few hours everyday and have not seen a walleye or sauger get caught yet. Not enough flow and water is vary clear not helping. Lake just lost ice a not even a week ago so a couple more degrees in water temp would help a bunch. I checked temp today below spillway it was only 37.

Anybody been fishing below the spillway? Good weather, decent flow rate should equal some decent fishing. Mainly looking for any walleye reports down there. I know it can be hit or miss, but this time of March is typically pretty good. Anybody?

Wondering if anyone has been out on Lake Shelbyville over the past week, and if so, what the water conditions are with the recent heavy rains. Son and I are heading down Thursday. Curious as to any successful patterns on recent crappie action. Message me if you prefer. Thanks for any information you can share.
