Hello, I live 5 mi. from Murray. I fish there all the time.  I'll give you my lure / line selections I use.  Early morning is topwater time on Murray. Try using my favorite the Zara spook jr. or Rapala skitterwalk, Rebel Pop R in upper lake creek inlets and anywhere up the Saluda river After  9 a.m. the topwater bite shuts off then you should go to your shallow diving crankbaits like Fat Free shad or Rapala DT-6 around main lake points or fallen trees / docks in coves. Also I have had success with Strike King Pro model jigs and Terminator spinnerbaits around docks and fallen trees especially  with light wind and med-heavy cloud cover. Wind is a big key on Murray.  Early/ late afternoon I go to a carolina rigged Bass Assassin fluke shad coler or white on main lake points and around main lake islands.  Dreher Island State Park is one of my favorites for this. Also shallow diving Fat free shad works well in the same locations. I tend to use my G Loomis MBR 843c and a Shimano Curado for most of my presentations. Except for spinnerbaits and tubes then I'll use a spinning rig.

I hope this info will help a little or allot,

Happy Fishing
