Conditions : Lake Thurmond: Bass: Good. Buckeye Lures reports that some bass are bedding and a very few are still pre-spawn, but most bass fishermen are thinking about the blueback herring spawn. Bass are shallow around points chasing herring, and they will take topwaters, flukes and soft plastics fished on the bottom.

Striper and Hybrids: Good to very good. Captain William Sasser (864-333-2000) reports that striper are also hanging around shallow points and they will eat free-lined herring, cut bait and artificial lures.

Catfish: Good to very good. Captain William Sasser reports that this is peak catfish season on Clarks Hill and channels and flatheads can be caught around riprap on a Carolina-rigged piece of cut herring.

Shellcracker: Good. Captain William Sasser reports that shellcracker are spawning and can be caught shallow on nightcrawlers.

Crappie: Fair to good. Captain William Sasser reports that crappie are in the backs of creeks where they can be caught on minnows fished vertically.
