The Lake Shelbyville Fish Habitat Alliance has taken on many projects to improve Lake Shelbyville’s aquatic habitat for all species of fish. These projects include building and placing over 800 Georgia and Shelbyville Cubes, artificial stumps and assisting with aquatic plant establishment in Lake Shelbyville. The group also assists Lake Shelbyville Corps of Engineers staff with the harvesting walleye and muskie from nursery ponds for stocking into Lake Shelbyville and the transplanting of aquatic plants. The cubes and stumps have been extremely popular with fishermen. After each habitat build and placement, aerial maps along with the GPS coordinates of the structure are made available to the public for fishing.
