Conditions : Lake Murray: •Largemouth bass: Slow to fair. Veteran angler Captain Doug Lown reports that some decent sacks are being caught in each tournament, but overall it is pretty tough to get bites a lot of days. The best bite has been taking place early in the morning, but after the sun gets up it has been harder to catch fish and anglers need to seek out shade (yes, this is a winter report. Really.) Early in the morning Doug is finding action in pockets near deep water, likely where bait has pulled up overnight, but later in the day he is concentrating on steep, rocky banks. Crankbaits, jigs and shakey head worms will catch fish. Avoid wind-blown areas and look for gulls to locate general areas where bass will be found – everything is bait dependent right now.

•Crappie: Slow. Captain Brad Taylor reports that the bite was pretty good until about Christmas when the rains came through, but at that point things pretty much completely shut down. For fish to start biting again there will need to be several days without freshwater inflow to give the mud time to settle out. When that happens look for fish to set back up in the mouths of creeks and for anglers to catch them tight-lining. For now fish are holding close to the bottom, but soon they will suspend again.
