Just got back from Lake Shelbyville. My son his dog and I had a great time. We caught over 50 fish in the 3 days we were there, most of them small. We threw back more then 40 crappie all 6-8" long. Caught about 10 walleye but only managed to keep one over the 14" limit. Mostly fished on points and deep drop offs where the ledge went from 15' to about 30'. The 90+ degree temps made it tough to stay out for very long but we gave it heck. Wind was strong at about 10-15 mph. Saturday morning was busy with power boats and jet ski's, really made the lake rough.

Planning a trip to target whitebass for the first time this Friday.  Are there any bait shops in the area?  Also not sure on which ramp to use.  Any input would be greatly appreciated.

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

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.
