With Lake Murray at 52 degree water temperature this is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points.

Lake Murray Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- cut dead herring and chicken livers are working great for the big cats all over
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The catfish family comprises of blue catfish, flathead catfish and channel catfish. Since catfish are warm water fish, they arenít going to be very active in this water temperature. They will still be feeding, but catfish will only be found very deep and feeding very slowly. Your best bet is give some of the more active fish species in your lake a shot until the cats are active again.

- Find the Birds and Have a FAST Boat!

Blacks Bridge on 391 was a popular spot today with up to 20 boats in one area while schools of Stripper
ran and Birds Flocked. Lures ranged from big to small but lures weren't the problem it was finding the fish
while they were schooling. If you could get it out there you could boat em. They were not as many
keepers as one would like to see but it was sure fun.

Lake Murray Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
The affects of the moon on freshwater fish and game are at a minimum right now. There will be another full moon coming up here in a few days. The fisherman should never use this as an excuse to not get on the water. The affects of the moon can only enhance the outcome of a day's fishing not decrease potential catch for today. On days without the new or full moon, all other factors including weather, barometric pressure, wind and cloud cover will make up today's equation for success.
