I'm headed to Lake Murray in Oklahoma next week. Hoping to get the family on some bass, both largemouth and/or smallmouth. How's the fishing? Any tips or pointers (baits, colors, areas) would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,

Very clear water, 6-7 ft visibility. Lots of main lake points with deep water.

Get out on the long points and fish 10-20 feet and they will be there.

Smoke colored 3" senkos on a drop shot always do the trick for me. PB and J finesse jigs work great too. Have a bone colored Yellow Magic tied on early. I usually fish around the Tucker Tower area and the creeks near it. The creek with the boat mooring out in the middle has a good ledge just past the mooring. Also the dam usually has lots of hydrilla and decent/good sized largemouth and smallmouth. There's a tffer named Mike Souza that lives near the lake that offered to help me the next time I head up there. Might shoot him a pm. I plan on taking him up on his offer as soon as I can get out of the metromess for a few days. Good luck. It's a beautiful lake, full of fish.

I have always caught smallies on chrome colored baby -1 crankbaits on the points in the mornings and then used hulla grubs in green pumpkin on stand up jig heads after it warms up. It is a fun lake to fish!

Good luck

Run the main lake points! Throw top water early, then move out to 15-30 ft. Lots of deep structure, watch your graph, then drop your bait down once you see it. The farther south you go, the clearer the water. A drop shot, shakeyhead, c-rigged fluke and a finesse jig will catch a lot of smallies in the clear water. Go North if you like to flip reeds and throw a frog in dirty water.
Haven't been out on the water in a month. After looking at last weekends tournament results, it looks like it was tough for most.

Fished this morning with my dad, caught 10 smallies, 1 sandbass, and some big rock bass. Most of smallies were 11-14 inches. It was a blast, PM me for more details. You should catch some

None! Walmart in Ardmore has some stuff, but you're going to want to bring the tackle you need with you.
