Striped and Hybrid Bass: Fair to good. Captain Bill Plumley (864-287-2120) and Guide Chip Hamilton (864-304-9011) report that striper fishing is improving and at times there has been some good schooling activity. The most common pattern has been fishing live herring vertically in mid-depth water.
Bass: Fair to good. Guide Brad Fowler reports that bass are slowly starting to move into a winter pattern, and fish can be caught shallow, in mid-depths and deep. Crankbaits, soft plastics, and even spoons are all catching fish.
Catfish: Fair. Captain Bill Plumley reports that channel catfish are feeding very well on a variety of baits including cut herring and worms, and blue catfish should turn on soon now that temperatures are dropping.
Crappie: Slow. Captain Bill Plumley reports that crappie fishing is still slow but fish can be caught around deeper docks and brush on minnows.
