Hey guys great forum you have here. My name is Brett I am 18, currently a freshman and the University of South Carolina (hence the name ) My parents live in Chapin and I am home atleast every other weekend and i always catfish from the bank every friday/saturday night. Obviously I fish Lake Murray. So far the biggest i personally have caught is maybe 8lb and the biggest any of my friends have caught while were fishing together is 10lb, im lookin for more. Wanted to see if there are any other Murray fisherman around here. I only bank fish because my dad is the wake up early go for striper/bass on topwater then texas rig until 11 or so then call it quits. He can not stand fishing at night (short temper and line/reel problems get him steaming) much less WAITING for a bite, he has to be working the rod. So going with him on the boat is out of the question and i dont believe he wants me to take her out in the middle of the night. I absolutely LOVE catfishing and was lookin to see if anyone on here fished murray often that i may be able to greet and fish with someday.
