Lake shelbyville report
 
Wow what a great lake. was the the week of may 3rd. First day limited out of nice size crappie in forty minutes!!! no joke me and a friend caught 30 in no time . Caught a couple bass in stumps. Hooked three muskie but never got them in the boat( i suck) and had a huge follow. I am not joking it was huge. Had a good time and caught walleye,bass,crappie,buffalo,gar and hooked one muskie at the spill way. it was my first time there and i cant wait to go back.Just a note the chicago fire department took 1st place in the crappie tournement. We stayed at the eagle creek resort. DONT STAY THERE!!!the camp ground are very nice.

lol...so you were also "disturbed" during all hours of the night by the Frat Party from Bradley.

We were there that weekend also, and I have to say....that resort is really going down hill.

i didnt care about party. but the resort is a total dump and the people that work there are real morons. The place was fithy and the food was the worst i ever had.

Tournament day
 
Firehousecook - What place did you and your partner get the day of the tournament? I spoke with one of your Chicago teams and they said they got 10th and said Chicago took home the traveling trophy.

The party they had on Saturday was calm....Friday night is when all the action was, I actually thought somebody on the 2nd floor was going to end up in our 1st floor room.

You are right, the rooms were pretty bad....and that seafood buffet on Friday was awful. We ate in town on Saturday, much better. I made reservations about 3 weeks ahead and their computers were messed up.....the computers were still messed up that weekend.

Lastly.....boat parking....lol, what a disaster. Why would somebody build a resort at a lake as popular as Shelby and not provide or plan for boat parking with electrical hook-ups nearby. :)3

if you are looking for a room or cabin try the south end . lakeside cabins off rt 16 or lithia resort both places are nice they also have hook-ups and won't break the bank .as for eagle creek the owners lost it to the bank they are evaluating the staff and resort now and will make changes as needed for more info try lake shelbyville . com click on links and you will see a list of accomadations also guide services. nows the time to be there for the crappie all coves and shallow. next bass followed by white bass and walleye.

Hate to say this, but what did you expect from a state run facility?
