Default shelbyville report 5-19 thru 5-23

weather was a little on the cool side. water temp 58 & climbing, up to 65 in spots the day we left. Fishn was slow. bass were tight to cover & not chasin. the few keepers I caught were coming off primary points and/or good cover. smaller fish on secondary & scattered. Good number of bass off the rip rap by the ****. fishn slow & BANGN THE ROCKS or no fish. the mrs was consistantly catching crappie & bass with 1/4 oz lead jig w/silver twister tail. Black was the color at the end of the week. Had a blsat despite the tough conditions. fishn was definitly on the upswing. the day we left ws the best action of the week. im sure its all changed by now anyway.... good luck sfish
