Hey everyone, I'll be fishing the Lake Murray Big Bass Tournament in May. I fished lake Murray back in October and the lake was about 8ft low, it sucked at the time, but I marked a lot of brush piles and rock piles ect that I wouldn't have seen otherwise. 

 

Anyway, I figure since itll be May and postspawn does anyone have any tips on catching bigger post spawn fish. I'm guessing I'll need at least a 7lber to even have a hope of winning. I know Murray is a blueback herring lake, but with the bluegill spawning I'm hoping many of the post spawn bass will be closer to the banks and attacking those nest robbing bluegill. 

 

Any thoughts or tips?

I don't know the rules for that tournament, are you sure it is ok to solicit help to win?

 

Also, if someone gives you advice that leads to a win, how much of the prize pool do they get?  Do they get their name on the trophy too?

It's an amateur tournament. No pros allowed. Anyone can get in besides them or fishing guides. Look it up, they go all over the country. Currently they're at Lake Norman in NC. Top prize is a boat. I'm just looking for general help on catching bigger post spawn bass. 

 

All I'm asking for is advice, as with any tournament and fishing in general, people learn from others, I'm not asking for GPS coordinates lol

Be careful what you ask for on public forums and Facebook. I’ll be out there as well. I live on the lake near Dreher Island state park . Shoot me a text if you want to chat.

I see the rule you're talking about, as I said earlier.. I'm not looking for locations.. it was a general question about catching big bass post spawn. 

 

Looking back this is probably the wrong area of the forum to have even asked that.
