I have now been back on the Ville for three trips. Got our three man limit each trip fishing with buddies. Fishing a little different than my other guide buddies. I am up on the north end fishing shallow stumps and brush on main lake. Mornings the water temps have fallen enough that the fish are moving out to about ten feet so myself and my two clients are tight lining jigs up on the nose of my Yarcraft but afternoons I am catching them under a cork about four-six ft. Water temps have been 58-64 and some have done at least some spawning. This week should be about the same with cold nights but look at next week. The north end will be on fire and the spawn will happen quickly. The deeper south end will be a week or so behind. We need the lake to come up and stabilize before I will be looking for walleye for now a couple weeks of crappie fishing. It has been very good. My guide license is still yet to come back from the state but won't be long I hope. Then I will update my openings and pricing. Just great to be back guiding. Have guided on Shelbyville and Clinton since 1994 so have plenty of experience. ... See MoreSee Less
Welcome back! Had a blast fishing with you on Shelbyville and Kentucky lake!
After a long hiatus I am back fishing Lake Shelbyville. Once my paperwork comes through I can then start booking guide trips. However I am still working my weekday job for another 2 years. So I am only guiding on weekends. If it is anything like before I will soon be booked out several months. Especially if I am only doing 8 trips a month. I fished with friends all weekend and we wore the crappie out so I am coming back at a good time. I will look for walleye soon but would rather see the lake come up about four more feet. For now I am just crappie fishing. You can shoot me an e-mail through my website. LakeShelbyvilleGuide.com or just give me a call preferably evenings so I am in front of my calendar. 217-840-1221. ... See MoreSee Less

Dropped off our hand-tied jigs at Sharp's Outdoors today. Lee wanted to have more hair jigs in his store. Our Baby Bugs really catch fish and even can be used under the ice. Stop in and check them out. Located in Decatur on Mound Rd. ... See MoreSee Less
Need some help on the fishing report at Lake is it frozen to the bank fisherman. How’s the bite for bank fisherman?
These things are fishy looking!!!!! Thanks for the quick service we appreciate it.
Our on-line sales have really taken off possibly for Christmas presents or Covid who knows but we sure do appreciate the business. We do have product at these local Retailers. Chips Marine located on Rt. 32 south of Sullivan, Il. Howies Lakeside just on down the road on Rt. 32. Gregorys Resort located at entrance to Lithia south end of Lake Shelbyville. Sharpes Outdoors located on Mound Rd. in Decatur, Il. and Crappie Pro Shop in southern Il.
We do have a rather unique line of crappie jigs with a large head and small hook to probe the depths for the upcoming winter season. Our small number four hook has hooked and landed many crappie over two and some over three lbs. Even a couple flatheads over 60 lbs. They can't shake that hook like I have seen on larger ones. It buries right in the bone in the top of their mouth like it should. Plus it comes free in the brush with a quick pop of your rod. Give them a try you will see. ... See MoreSee Less

Tina and I were back out on the road delivering jigs to Chip's Marine located on Lake Shelbyville at the Bo-Woods ramp exit. Then off to Howies Lakeside located on Rt. 32 four miles south of Sullivan Ill. We mailed a ton of jigs down to Southern Ill. this past week to go into the Crappie Pro Shop so Blake will have plenty for the fall. We had already filled Sharp's Outdoors located on Mound Rd. in Decatur Ill. Lee wanted pink spinners as well so he is the only sore with them. He has graciously decided to haul our jigs to several fishing shows this winter. Since I no longer have a booth at them. Collinsville is the first in early January. I wish to thank all that handle our jigs and do support a product made right here in the USA actually in my tiny little office since Tina now is working from home she took half of it. Sacrifices we make. ... See MoreSee Less
