Bass: Tournament angler Andy Wicker of Pomaria reports that in November the fishing should improve after what has been an unusually long fall turnover settles out. Some fish will stay suspended on offshore structure and start taking a jerkbait or underspin, while some fish will move shallow and relate to the sides of rocky points and areas with hard bottom. A shakey head worm can be very good this month, but if bait is around a #5 Shad Rap fished in small ditches and pockets can work well. There will also be another group of fish that can be caught on the bottom deep.Striped bass: Captain Brad Taylor (803-331-1354) reports that in November more and more fish should move up the river where they can be caught on free-lines, planer boards, and by throwing double rigs at schooling fish. Look for the birds and like clockwork expect good numbers of fish to be above Blacks Bridge by about Thanksgiving.Crappie: Captain Brad Taylor reports that typically in November fish will be relating to the channels, but they will also be using brush as stopping points as they follow the schools of bait. The best bite is likely to be up the rivers on jigs and minnows.Catfish: Captain William Attaway (803-924-0857) reports that November is usually one of the peak months for catching catfish on Lake Murray. Anchoring with cut bait in the river channels is the best pattern, but you can catch them all over the lake in deeper water.
