Default Lake Murray report

Lake Murray:
  • Crappie: Very good. A Captain Brad Taylor reports that despite the cold water the bite is about as good as it will get in the Little River area. The best pattern continues to be tight-lining, and until water temperatures hit 50 there won’t be much trolling. Jigs tipped with minnows are most productive right now.
  • Striped Bass: Good. Dooley’s Sports Shop reports that the striper fishing has improved in the last week or two. Fish can be found up the Little River from 15 feet on up to the bank around shallow points, and a lot of striper are being picked up by crappie fishermen trolling jigs and minnows.
  • Bream: Good. Dooley’s reports that shellcracker have moved out a little bit and the fishing has slowed down somewhat. Look around secondary points with hard shell bottoms in 8-10 feet of water and fish with baby nightcrawlers.
  • Catfish: Fair. Captain Chris Simpson reports that lots of blue catfish are suspended under baitfish, but there are still some channel catfish that can be caught using traditional bottom fishing methods such as Santee-style drifting. For blue catfish, fishing suspended bait just under the baitfish is most effective. Cut and live herring are the best baits.
  • Largemouth Bass: Slow. Captain Doug Lown reports that a combination of cold temperatures, current from pulling water and muddy conditions is still making for a tough bite. It’s a good time to cast a Shad Rap in 4-6 feet of water and cover a lot of territory.
