me and a friend of mine fished lake murray yesterday and had a good day catching and releasing about 30 catfish. no giants but almost all where in the 8-12 lb range. the biggest was 15 lbs. we even caught a bass on cut bait. herring was the bait fot the day fishing in 12-27 feet of water just across the lake from sc&g #3. hope this helps someone looking for a fun day.
