South Carolina Fishing Report

Lakes & Reservoirs

Lake Murray Sponsored by
Date 29-Sep-14
Water Condition
Water Temperature  

Conditions : Lake Murray: •Bream: Very good. Shellcracker fishing is very strong in 4-10 feet of water off points using nightcrawlers. If fish are not quickly located move to another spot. Bluegill are holding around docks and can be caught on worms and crickets.

Striped bass: Fair to good. Striper are still mostly found from the dam to Shull Island, and the majority of fish are being caught from the surface down to 40 feet of water. There is good topwater action at times, and standard topwater lures, Striper Delights trailed by a small spoon, and free lined live herring are all working well. For deeper fish down lined herring are the best choice.

•Catfish: Fair to good. Murray catfish seem to be moving into a fall pattern a little early. Some fish (99% channels) can still be caught shallower in the 5-20 foot range, but blues are also being caught deeper in the 20-40 foot range. The most consistent pattern is anchoring on points and humps in the main lake, but the drift is also producing some bites. Cut herring, white perch, shrimp and dip baits are all working equally as well.
