Default Horseshoe Lake

Try this website:http://southernillinoisan.com/articl...s/16285184.txt

Here are some remarks from another website:The '93 & '95 floods destroyed the bluegill and 'cracker fishery there.No one really knows what happened,but they are GONE...period !!
The crappie are not there in the numbers they once were,but the average size seems to be better the last few years.
We've seen numerious 2 1/2lb + fish.

the floods of the early 90's took a toll on Horseshoe. Crappie still remain there...but not in the tremendous numbers of its heyday

my dad and i visited this lake years back in the summer when we saw pictures of the lake and some old reports of great panfishing, bass fishing and so on. When we got there the lake was very scenic, tall cypress trees in the water and such...looks like louisiana there. If you are looking for panfish or bass in the summer time forget about it, not sure about fall or sprign but the entire like is about 4 foot deep and no bass, bluegill, or crappie were to be had. But one thing we did find alot of was CATFISH. We made the best of our vacation by catching some great cats from this lake just about anywhere we went. You are supposed to be able to catch the crappie in good numbers in early spring but if you are planning on going anytime soon catfish and carp will be about your only bet!
