"(Lake Murray) is fishing pretty good right now," said Team Chevy pro Anthony Gagliardi of Prosperity, S.C. "There was a tournament there about a week ago and it took about 24 pounds to win it. There's some decent fish being caught."
Gagliardi said anglers will rely on power techniques in the colored waters of Lake Murray. He said spinnerbaits, shallow crankbaits and flipping a jig will be popular among competitors.
Anglers will take off from Dreher Island State Park located at 3677 State Park Road in Prosperity at 7 a.m. Weigh-in will be held at Dreher Island State Park beginning at 3 p.m. Takeoffs and weigh-ins are free and open to the public.
