Went fishing yesterday for catfish at lake murray off the bank(at park ramp #3).I only got 2 bites and missed both times. I was using those berkley gulp chicken livers,catfish charlie dough balls, and live red worms. I got the bites on the fake chicken livers and the worms(with 6 worms on the hook). The first time my line was to slack and the second time i didn't make it to my rod in time. I think the fishing should start picking up arould late may and early april whan the bream and shell crackers start coming to the shallows.
