Crappie


The crappie fishery is good on Lake Shelbyville.  Most anglers target them in the spring when they are all over the bays and creek arms throughout the lake.  Find timber in the 3 to 8 foot depth range and you should be able to find some crappie.  The summer brings tougher fishing, but the deeper bays and main lake structure will hold schools of crappie, so if you can find them, you can still catch them.  In the fall, the fishing usually picks up again in the shallower bays and creeks.
