Freshwater Fishing Trends- Nov. 21 ( unchanged from Nov. 14)

Lake Murray:

  • Shellcracker and bream: Shellcracker fishing has been strong with worms fished on the bottom in 4-10 feet of water.
  • Striped Bass: Fair to good. Most of the striper are being found from the mid-lake area up to Macedonia. The most effective techniques have been free-lining herring and trolling bucktails and Rebel plugs, with planer board rigs also still catching some fish. Down lining has been less popular. Schooling activity has slowed particularly with the recent winds, but when schooling fish are found they have generally been good-sized.
