  • White Perch fishing here on Lake Murray is on fire!
    Overcast days put these fish up into the 15 to 20 foot range, and the action on half ounce Berry's Flex it spoons is fast and furious! Sunny Days puts them out into the 25 to 35 foot range. Great action! just out deeper!! These fish are some great eating! Pure white meat! Get on out and take advantage of this fishing while you can!

    This week has been outstanding for White Perch, The fishing is smoking hot!! Half ounce spoons in 20 to 30 feet of water are taking alot of fish for the frying pan!! My past 3 days of fishing has produced approximately 170 white perch. Doesn't get any better right now!!

    The White perch fishing here on Lake Murray is outstanding right now, with big fat keeper fish, just waitin to be tossed into a deep fryer!!! 25 to 35 feet of water is the key active bite! Half ounce Berry's Flex it spoons is the hot spoon right now!! Chartreuse seems to be the best color with the lake water being dingy to stained, because of recent rains! get on out and get some hot action!!

    Pretty sure i mentioned that the Lake Murray Shellcracker bite is smokin hot right now!!!

    Lake Murray Shellcrackers are starting to bite!! Humps and secondary points with shellbeds are the ticket right now with the cooling water temps! Nightcrawlers and red worms fished on split shot rigs and mini carolina rigs are the ticket right now! This bite will get fast and furious with cooler weather!! The best depth for them seems to be 3 to 10 feet of water right now! I move every 30 minutes or so!

    Don't like the heat? No problem, fish at night, catfishing is smoking hot at night here on Lake Murray. Main lake points and humps is the way to go!! Fresh cut herring, white perch and bream is the ticket to load your boat with great eating catfish. Stay cool at night!!!!

    The catfishing on Lake Murray is hotter than South Carolina asphalt right now!! Get you some fresh cut bait, such as white perch, bream or herring. fish around points,secondary points and humps, in 10 to 25 feet of water. And by the way!! The night bite is the right bite!!

    Bream fishing is super hot on Murray right now. Just run the banks and you can smell em. Small crankbaits and the trusty ole beetle spin is great for covering water. Also the tried and true redworm under a float is great. This action pretty much last all day!!!

    Here we go!! If your not fishing for stripers right now on Murray, you are truly missing out on some hot action!! Last 2 hours of the day! And the first hour of dark has been hot for me!! They are running bait all over the place!! really nice keeper fish are being caught. Small Deep running crankbaits, and suspending jerkbaits are the hot bait right now! This action is smokin hot!!

    here's a hot tip this week for Murray stripers. Look for them from the gap up into the river systems!! but don't look deep!! i'm talkin 15 feet of water or less. This action has been hot for the last 2 weeks!! Small crankbaits are the ticket! they will hammer them. water temp has been 50 degrees. The warmer weather this weekend will make this shallow bite even better!!! Have fun everyone!!

    The White Perch fishing on lake Murray right now is smokin hot!! If your not out there Perch jerkin , you are seriously missing out on some great action!! Lots of fish to be had, and a really great eatin fish!! 1/2 ounce Berry's Fex-it spoon is all you need. Buffalo creek up to the rivers is the place to be!! Look for bait balls and the perch, stripers, and Largemouth Bass will all be there!! I love fishing this time of year! 25 to 35 feet of water seems to be the right depth for really active fish!! Have a Merry Christmas everyone!!

    The hot bite the past few weeks has been around the towers up by the dam. 6 to 10 pounders have been caught early and late in the day. downline live herring 20 to 30 feet deep and hang on. lots of keeper size fish being caught as is lots of small stripers.This has been the most consistant bite on the lake right now. Good luck everyone.

    The catfishing is hot on Murray right now, just like the heat!!! Night time is the right time!! fresh cut bait is key! Anchor down in twenty feet of water around humps and points. Action gets fast and furious right off the rip!! Midnight till about 3am seems to be the hot times. Lots of nice eating size cats being caught, with the occasional ten pounder.Good luck everyone!!! Have a great week!!

    this lake changes every year, since the hydrilla has been gone. the bream seem to move deep after the spring. i catch them off of the points in 15 to 20 feet of water! the other thing is you are going to catch white perch and catfish right along with them in water that deep!! If your catching nothing but those pesky white perch, i move to another spot. i only use redworms on split shot rigs, but you could try some crickets also! Good luck!!
