FISHING REPORT
5/9/15 1:40 PM CST
Was out here last week one day and got around 25 crappie and kept 8. Out here yesterday and caught around 40 and kept 10. Most fish were 6-8 inches with my keepers being around 9. Nothing to write home about. Got my fish on plastics and Minnie minnows. If you want some of the smallest crappie minnows ive ever seen then you can get exactly 24 of them for 4$ at the park bait shop. The plus side of these is you could probably catch bluegill, just saying........F.P.

Anyone doing any good with the bass that is willing to share? Taking the nephew out there this weekend, and would love to put him on some bass. He really wants a smallie. Dont need your secret spot, just looking for a general water depth or location on the lake. Have only been here a time or two.

I am looking to go to shabbona this weekend. I am just wondering if the docks are in? Also I was wondering if anyone has been there this season.

From the Illinois DNR. Just an FYI.

The lake was initially stocked with 30,000 tiger muskie fry in 1976. The stocking success was excellent with 53 tiger muskie collected in the fall electrofishing survey of 1976. The lake was again stocked with 286 tiger muskie fingerlings in 1980.

After that, they went to pure strain muskies in the early 80's. So rumors of tiger muskies in the lake were true but they are long gone now and are all pure strain muskies.

I have been on a Muskie rescue, part of Oswegoland Fishing fools. The only purpose was to put musky that went over the dam, back into the lake. All the musky were silver and one time over 50 were returned to the lank.

My biggest was caught in Kincaid Lk., a 48 incher, released!

Ice Depth: 13"
Fished all day and probably caught around 25 crappie and 1 small walleye. Kept a nice limit of crappie. Ice was solid for the most part ranging from 13-15 inches where i measured. 2 to 4 inches of watery slush on top of the ice.Didn't have any problem walking on and fished the deep trees....F.P. Tounge Out

Thanks TH for the info. Guess my source was not as reliable as I thought, but I do remember two Tigers, or maybe it was Silver, muskie state records coming out of Shabbona. But, that may have been in the seventies and eighties.
