Musky are there. I was down last year with girlfriend so we did not Chuck any musky baits but saw some surface. From reading, they do quiet well below the damn. The water clarity last year was bad. I just think the further south you go, less musky fishermen.

Not good advise from the old guy. Shabonna although it has a healthy musky population is more difficult than years ago. Water clarity can be challenging. Shelbyville, imo can be rewarding. It is a bigger lake but concentrate on basics. Structure, timber and water temp. Shabonna does not have a thermalcline making it less difficult when water hits mid 50's.

It's a law of physics:  All standing /non flowing bodies of fresh water turn over at 52 degrees F.  If you time it right you can see it happen.  Pretty neat to see but it makes a real dingy mess out of the lake or pond until it all settles out.

I know it's a little early to be asking this,  but was wondering at about what water temp does the lake turn over? Going to be down at Shelbyville for the first time over Columbus day weekend. The week prior has weather forecasted mid 60's during the day and low 50's and even high 40's at night. Will be chasing after bass and musky. Any info would be appreciated. You can PM me.
