    Shelbyville but no Kentucky Lake? What is the biggest crappie the Shelbyville regulars have seen pulled out of there? would Shelbyville even make top 5 big crappie lakes in Illinois for a true giant?

    Biggest Iv ever caught from the ville was 16.25 and it was in August. Barely weighed 2lbs. I have caught a handful of 2+lb fish spring and fall both but its not a frequent occurrence by any means.

    thanks for the reply! I haven't heard of to many 2+ from Shelbyville so was curious. if I was to rank top 5 in Illinois that I fish regularly to catch a true giant slab it would be
    1) farm pond (duh!)
    2)Coffeen
    3) Kincaid
    4)Carlyle
    5)Little Grassy

    What is everyone else's top 5 Illinois giant slab lakes ?????

    I remember years ago hearing about Smithland Pool being THE place to go in the midwest. Is it still a quality crappie water?

    I didn't bother to read past #1. The author clearly has very little knowledge, he mentions "Realistically, any of the three major flood control reservoirs along I-55 in Mississippi (Grenada, Sardis, and Arkabutla)"... there are actually 4 lakes. Yeah, they forgot Enid where the world record white crappie just so happened to be caught. Also, Grenada is known as the home of the 3 pound crappie, not the king of it. So this article has zero credibility and stinks of someone who didn't even bother doing any basic homework, much less having any personal knowledge of the lakes mentioned

    I think a Shelbyville guide must have wrote that list I have fished Shelbyville for 45 years have only caught 3 crappie over 2 pounds. I must be fishing the wrong way.
