Fishing for largemouth bass, spotted bass, shoal bass, channel catfish, black crappie, white crappie, bluegill, redear sunfish, white bass, yellow bass and striped bass at Lake Martin in Alabama.
Lake Martin, AL

The most popular boating and fishing lake in Alabama, Lake Martin is an angling paradise with 40,000 surface acres. Located directly south of Alexander City in Central Alabama on the Talapoosa River, there is both public and private access for boat launching and marina facilities. Over 750 miles of shoreline with bluffs and tree-lined banks provide untold amounts of targets for casting. The lake has healthy populations of bass, catfish, crappie, sunfish and stripers. Due to the relatively clear water, fish can be spooked easily. Long casts and lighter lines are a good approach here. The lake is used for watersport activities as well as fishing so boat traffic may include pleasure boats, canoes, sailboats, kayaks, pontoons and a wide variety of fishing boats. Spring and fall are the best times for fishing here, but winter also produces some really nice stringers of spotted bass. Area campgrounds provide close-by access to fishing areas.
