This lake is a good largemouth bass lake. Anglers have been doing well on Lake Shelbyville for years and it holds many bass fishing tournaments here every year too. The spring and fall are the best times to fish for bass here as many bass will move into the many smaller bays and creek arms throughout the lake. Hit the spawn just right and you can do very well fishing 3 to 8 feet of water in the all creek arms here. Find some wood and hard bottom and you’ll most likely find some largemouth bass. The summer fishing is tougher. Some anglers fish at night, while other will just go deeper and fish the main lake structure. Big bass are here with fish up to and above 7 pounds possible.
