Conditions : Lake Murray: •Striped bass: Good. Lake World reports that with a hot early summer striper have moved deep into the 35-70 foot range in the lower lake. Most of the fish will be found around humps on the channel, or bunching up on the edges of the channel. Some fish have been caught around the towers, but overall the action there is not fast and furious yet. Anglers are catching fish by down-lining live herring, and there is also a fair amount of activity trolling lead core lines and down riggers with big plugs like Stretch-25s and umbrella rigs. While surface activity has not been a significant pattern anglers should still keep their eyes open and have a topwater lure tied on. Captain Brad Taylor reports that his boat has also been concentrating on the lower end of the lake recently, and he is also fishing the main lake humps pattern with down-lines. For him 50 feet has been the most productive depth and he has also seen some occasional schooling.

•Shellcracker: Good. Lake World reports that shellcracker continue to bite pretty well, although they have pulled into slightly deeper water. Fish out front of docks and around brush piles in 12-15 feet of water with nightcrawlers. As always when shellcracker fishing, anglers should move on if they don’t have any bites after about 10 minutes.
