Default Lake Shelbyville report 04/13/03 through 04/16/03

stayed at Eagle Creek Resort with the wife and two daughters for three nights - fished the standing trees across from the resort boat docks the whole time - caught a total of 30 legal crappies between 10 and 13 inches long - also several short ones and a few small largemouth bass - all fish caught on shiners under a slip bobber set from three to four feet deep - cast right next to the trees and let the minnow sit there - it wasn't hot and heavy, but there was enough action to make for a good trip - not a fish on every tree, just one here and one there - water temps were around 55 degrees - I caught my ten-fish limit fishing by myself twice, once on Sunday evening and again on Tuesday morning - the wife and kids went Monday morning and they caught seven - I took the older daughter Wednesday morning and she caught three - overall, a nice trip for a few nights - as always, good fishing to all.
