3 fish caught | Lunker: 3lb Largemouth Bass using a Berkley Grub

10/24/14  - Crappie were slow but steady on jigs and minnows.  Still haven't moved up shallow so you can find them down in the 10-15' range in brush piles or along the rocks.  Some good quality fish being caught and signs are looking better and better for them to be on fire in the next few weeks.

1 fish caught | Lunker: 1lb Black Crappie using a Tube

Knocked the snot out of the crappies on 4/11/14. My buddy and I caught 80+ using southern pro baits crappie tubes underneath a bobber in 4-8 fow. Just a blast. We both limited and he had a bonus 14.5 incher. The bite is just getting good and is going to continue as the crpapie are coming up to spawn. Can't wait to limit almost every day. Get on out to Shelbyville for some fast action crappies.
