March Madness for Shawnee Expeditions!

With 47 fish in the boat between Scott and Chris the first two weeks of March, Kinkaid Lake in Southern Illinois continues to be an early option for great muskie fishing. Recent water temps range from 47-55 degrees. The recent storms has put some color on the lake and the sediment has been prevalent in shallow days. Rattle baits are still key during these recent

rains, but glide boats such as the Drifter Hellhound is a great option. Water depths has already started to recede and a decent bite can be found trolling outside the spawning flats. Some big fish showing up as well, with Chris Riebe’s client having a 5 fish day with a fat 47.75” to top it off. A couple more weeks of pre spawn Muskie fishing still left.
