Lake Shelbyville Il Fishing Report for 5-30-08

We apologize for the late start this year and lack of reports. Things have been busy here at the Satterfield's! We are finding more time and we are going to be posting the reports for 2008 as we see needed. The message board has been temporarily disabled due to spam and we have no time to sit and keep it clean! If we can figure out a way to enable it and keep the spam off, we will.if anyone has any suggestions, please let us know.

Lake level is at 599.21 which is 5 in. below summer pool.

Water temperature is finally in the low 70's

Water is stained though out the lake , but very fishable.

Crappie fishing is fair to good and changes day to day. Their are some on the beds and some are finished with the spawn. You can catch fish deep and shallow on wood, main lake and in the coves. Jigs or minnows are working and you may have to move a lot to find fish. Most of the crappie we have caught were 8 to 20 feet on the points and drops fishing 1/4 oz jigs with tubs and twisters in any color.

The White bass are slow, but should get good soon with the warmer temps. We will let you know when it gets good.

Bass fishing has been very good deep and shallow ,you can fish your favorite baits in the coves and the main lake. Some fish are still on the beds in the coves, but most have finished and moved to the main lake points and drops.

Walleye are on the shallow flats and points 2 to 6 foot of water and are being caught on Crain baits, rattle-l-traps and jigs tipped with minnows or nightcrawers. Once again you need to move till you find the right spot and the keeper size fish.

Musky have been slow and will improve with the warmer temps.

The fish are in great condition, fat and healthy and the numbers look good. We hope you all have a safe and successful trip and always take someone fishing with you.
