Lake Shelbyville Crappie Fishing Guide

Lake Shelbyville Crappie fishing is good right now.  A slip bobber and a minnow around cover in depths of 5′ down to 16′ is catching a BUNCH of fish.  Some days we are skipping the bobber, getting out the jigging poles and tight lining a minnow rig in these depths.

Right now structure is loaded with fish but the big keeper fish seem to be not as aggressive as the little fish.  I have been moving around a lot trying to catch a few keepers off of each piece of structure and then moving.  You can sit there and catch fish after fish but if you’ve caught 2 keepers and the next ten are unders, move.  We’re fishing about 20 pieces of structure or more a day to put together nice stringers of fish.

Cooler temps are on the horizon and should make the ratio of big to little fish better and not have to move around so much.

I have a openings left in October and November for some fall fishing.  Call, text, email or message to book!
