I live in Columbia sc. I fish Lake Murray as my primary lake . I haven't been much latley because I just got back from fishing at the CBBT. I am going in the morning. The latest report I've seen is that the Stripers are schooling some from Dreher ISland to Bomb Island. I don't use live bait but the ones that do use live herring or large shinners. I use the large bucktails or Bas Assassin on heavy jig . I haven't tried this yet but I think sting silvers will work also they work well at CBBT. If you find them schooling on top lucky craft jerk baits do very well. When are you coming down?
