Lake Murray: Striper: Good. Captain Brad Taylor (803-331-1354) reports that the best fish are being caught on down-lines fished in 55-70 feet of water in the lower lake. The free-line bite has declined and is mainly yielding smaller fish now.
Crappie: Good. Captain Brad reports that good numbers of crappie are still being caught over brush in 18-25 feet of water and around deeper docks. Both minnows and jigs will catch fish.
Catfish: Good. Captain Chris Simpson (864-992-2352) reports that fan-casting a variety of baits including dip baits and cut herring in 10-25 feet of water has been productive for channel catfish.
Bass: Fair to good. Captain Doug Lown reports that largemouth can be found from shallow to mid-depth to deep water. The fishing has been far better early and late. Buzzbaits fished around the banks when there is some shade will catch fish, and plastic worms fished off points have also been working.
