Hello D-96, we had 14 anglers fishing this Division 96 1-day qualifier tournament at Lake Murray. There were 42 fish brought to the scales that weighed a total for 109.63 lbs.
The day started out 59 degrees with 15 mph winds, the temperature dropped as the winds increased through the day to reach nearly 40 degrees with 20-25 mph winds. Lake Murray's water temperature averaged 49-51 degrees and the water level was down 10 ft, due to some aggressive tactics to control invasive shoreline weeds. The water level is scheduled to be returned to normal levels by spring.
