Steve Welch won 1st Place at the Crappie USA Qualifying Tournament on Lake
Shelbyville on May 10, 2008.
The lake is now at 610.3 or 10 feet over summer pool and the water temps. are running 77. The south end is very clear and the north end has quite a bit of stain but very fishable. Once the thermocline starts to form on the north end the crappie fishing will get better so for now I am fishing further south in the clear water.
We are crappie fishing over deep brush mid lake to south end. We are using a slip bobber and minnow set at 17-20 ft. and fishing the tops of deep brush that is in 20-25 feet.
We are also going up some of the creeks and fishing brush in 10-15 feet with the same slip bobber and minnows set up.
THECRAPPIEFISHING IS ON FIREAND WE ARECATCHINGOVER A HUNDRED A DAY!!!!!!
The white bass are being caught on ledges and willows that have wind blowing into them but they move around all the time so keeping track of them is hard. I am concentrating on the crappie.
