Yes fishing is still good.  There are still some fish being caught along 154 and under the bridges but our better fish have been coming from brush piles in 10 to 15 foot of water.

There are a lot of fish to be caught around the three bridges on Highway 154. I would target 10 to 14 for the water with jigs. This picture was from yesterday afternoon.

Fishing is good and getting better.  We have been fishing structure in 4' to 10' with jigs or minnows. Water temperatures are still very warm for this time of year but they are forecasting much cooler temperatures starting Wednesday and that will help a lot. Some of the best fishing of the year is still to come. 

We have had a couple cancellations the first one is Wednesday October 10th, then we have a boat available for October 19th, 20th, 21st or 28th. In November we have a boat available for the 1st, 2nd, 5th, 6th, 7th, or 8th. Give us a call to book one of those days. 618-472-4763.

Typically the bite really picks up in October when the water temp cools into the 60's and stays good until the lake ice's up. 

Rend and shelbyville are both good lakes but fish a lot differently.

Is there a time in the fall that the crappie get real active at Rend?  If so, is there a time when they slow back down?  (November ? December?)  Thanks. Also, is Rend and Shelbyville comparable in crappie fishing success?

Thank you for any info.
