Fished Shoe yesterday morning targeting crappies. Started at 4:30 am and worked the entire 22' - 33'  basin. Just a few red dots on the vex that hugged the bottom. Whatever it was looked at the presentations and left.....could of been bullheads. Used dead sticks with live minnows at varying depths. I noticed at every spot I used live full minnows on the dead stick and they came up dead after only 20 min. My guess is O2 levels are not good hence im thinking those were bullheads hugging the bottom. Caught nada and threw the box at em and nothing ever came thru suspended on the vex. Drilled and fished around 14 holes. Will give Bago a run this weekend.

Caught these little guys all morning long on the fly rod. Sure wish I could bring up something larger one of these days... ;)

Same with me. I caught a number of small gills but that was it. The most exciting part of fishing this little lake is riding up the side road to get to the landing. I'm going to try Horseshoe lake on Friday.

What Ted B said is correct - many of the panfish are stunted, specifically the bluegills and crappie. However, I don't believe putting cribs or structure into the lake will alone solve this specific problem. The real problem, in my opinion, is a lake of predatory fish to manage the panfish population.

Two things that would help: (1) a strict catch and release policy for predatory fish, such as largemouth bass and northern pike, both of which are in Shoe lake, and (2) the proactive removal of stunted panfish. I've fished the lake for largemouth and northern many times, and I release everything I catch. However, there have been multiple times where I've seen people remove largemouth and northern from this lake. It's unfortunate because it contributes to the stunted panfish problem. The fact that it's a small lake to begin with doesn't help, either.

you probably won't

if you want to do the fishery a favor keep all the little bluegill in there and maybe the fish will have a chance to grow. one day my bro and i cought about 75 3"ers. should put cribs or structure in the lake to create more food. everything is stunted.

Fished from 8-10 PM on Wednesday night (3/23) and only found some 4-6" crappies. Couldn't locate anything bigger.

Any info on the water clarity? Going out tommorow (depending on the water) and really need a report before then.
