Conditions : Lake Murray: •Crappie: Fair to good. Lake World reports that at the upper end of the lake the crappie bite has been pretty good for anglers slow trolling with jigs around the mouths of creeks. Most fish have already completed the spawn, and before long fish should start to move out to brush piles. Catfish: Fair. Captain Chris Simpson reports that the catfish bite is still a little inconsistent. The warm days have been heating up the surface water temperatures by mid-day, which is leading to a good mid-day to late afternoon bite. The cold nights have been cooling water temperatures back down, which has been making the morning bite slow. The best pattern is to anchor on humps and points with cut baits and stagger your baits at different depths, with the ideal depth zone getting shallower later in the day. Overall 10-20 feet has been the best depth. Bream: Fair. Lake World reports that there are very few reports of bluegill being caught so far, but good numbers of shellcracker are being caught in 2-8 feet of water around docks and brushpiles.
