Lake Shelbyville Crappie Fishing Guide

Lake Shelbyville crappie continue to bite but we have switched from trolling crankbaits to spider rigging double minnow rigs.  Our crankbait bite really slowed down this past Saturday and I think it had something to do with all the rain and the water temps cooling off a bit.  We have found fish to be holding about 12-14 ft. deep trolling along at 0.4 mph.

Water clarity is pretty good right now, about 2 feet, with the normal Shelbyville green stain for color.  Water temps are running in the low 80’s.

Clinton Lake crappie are biting and are on a heavy minnow bite.  I am using a slip bobber and minnow rig and I am targeting deep structure with schools of fish in it about 16 feet deep.  Stop by Ol Joes Bait and Tackle on highway 54 for a few dozen minnows and hit the lake!  They’re open at 4 a.m. daily and are ready to dip some up for you!

I have openings still for some summer time action and our fall bite is just around the corner so call, text or message me to book a trip!
