Well as predicted October has been an amazing fishing month here on Lake Martin. Weather and water has cooled down a lot but the fish bite is on fire. We have been running several boats every day and boating lots of fish . Our catches have been nice stripers, spotted bass, huge white bass and giant crappie.

Moving on now to November man you talking about excited guides and excited clients all of us know that Alex City Guide Service shows out in November. Anyone that follows us on social media or better yet fishes with us know we boat 30-75 fish per boat per trip starting in November. It’s a anglers dream fishing Lake Martin late fall and all winter long.

If your fishing on your own it may be the best month to locate stripers and other fish fairly easy. A lot of crappie are caught this month as I am on water daily I see a lot of crappie boats trolling in November. If your searching for these fine eating fish I’d concentrate in any of the bigger creek channels.

The gulls start helping us stripe anglers this month by diving in the huge schools of bait which in return tells us we better check those areas out. I personally keep several things rigged up to fish with for example top water plugs, big jigs and trolling lures. My go to is live bait rigs with nice smaller size live baits. Always bear in mind as big as Lake Martin is and regardless of how much the wind might blow or how many fishermen you might see there is always a quiet place to position yourself away from others and away from the elements to have a very successful day of catching in November.
Bundle up , put on a good PFD and get out on Lake Martin this month and enjoy life, the outdoors, your family and friends and hopefully getting that fish of a lifetime.
Until next time tight lines!
