Fishing is good pulling U-rigs around main lake points and backs of creeks. The bigger fish are shallow up near the banks. Watch for the birds diving into the water .

Lake Murray Smallmouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- There are no smallmouth bass in Lake Murray!
Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Lake Murray at 46 degree water temperature this is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points. Smallmouth bass will be feeding at this water temperature but will be much harder to catch. On Sunny warm afternoons its a great time to throw a crank bait, jigs or slow roll a spinnerbait at 5-10 foot on sunny points and drops off of sunny flats. Smallmouth Bass will move into warm water on warm sunny days.

Lake Murray Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie fishing is sometimes at its best with the water temperature down this low. Crappie will be in large schools and follow the large shad schools around in extremely deep water. Find the deepest parts of your lake in old river channels and scan your graph for schooling shad. When you find the school, drop your plastics or live bait down to the bottom of the shad and get ready. Many crappie fishermen will be catching awesome numbers and size of fish this time of year. If you are brave enough to get out on the water this time when the water temperature is this cold, it can really pay off. Be careful out there, remember to boat safely. Never take any chances at these temperatures.

Lake Murray Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- cut dead herring and chicken livers are working great for the big cats all over
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The catfish family comprises of blue catfish, flathead catfish and channel catfish. Since catfish are warm water fish, they arenít going to be very active in this water temperature. They will still be feeding, but catfish will only be found very deep and feeding very slowly. Your best bet is give some of the more active fish species in your lake a shot until the cats are active again.

- Find the Birds and Have a FAST Boat!

Blacks Bridge on 391 was a popular spot today with up to 20 boats in one area while schools of Stripper
ran and Birds Flocked. Lures ranged from big to small but lures weren't the problem it was finding the fish
while they were schooling. If you could get it out there you could boat em. They were not as many
keepers as one would like to see but it was sure fun.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

New Moon fishing can be at its best. The gravitational pull on the earth is at its peak when the moon and sun are rising and setting at the same time of day. This combination can generate extraordinary fishing opportunities especially if combined with perfect weather variances. The new moon may have the fish extremely aggressive and actively hunting for food. Try fishing a little faster today and with several different baits and techniques. When fish are more aggressive, its always fun to fish a little more aggressive. Watch the peak fishing times and make sure you are on the water during that part of the day to take full advantage of today?s solar/lunar peaks. Have a great day!
