I fish both Lake Martin and Lay Lake here in central Alabama. I'm not sure if the stripes are running (mainly a winter fish, when the water warms up they go deep...50-80 feet)but I'll check and post, I usually fish below the damns for them and you want the power company generating power. They come up to the flowing water and feast on shad, at which time I cast out 1-2oz white buck tails. Cast upstream and let the current carry them downstream and retrieve. If you fish for stripes that way be prepared to lose plenty of jigs. I carry NO less then a dozen, homemade.I mainly Bass fish..all catch and release. I use artificial worms on much like a Carolina rig. I'm sure the brim and a few crappie are in the works. As far as catfish I don't have a use for them so they are not targeted. If you are planing on using a boat and covering any distance please bring along at least a handheld GPS...these inlets are deceiving especially on your return to the ramp. Lets not even talk about nighttimeTSpecks (4/8/2010)Has anyone ever fished Lake Martin and whats the best thing for the wife and I to fish for????
Just curious - where they biting the colors I mentioned?TSpecks (4/11/2010)Got back late last night. Had a great time even thou the wife spanked my @$$ she caught 9 spotted bass to my 5. She also caught a crappie on a finess worm. I threw everything I had for crappie after that with know luck. I was only there for a short period of time, and couldnt find a place close by that sold minnows. Next time I will bring minnows..
