Hey everyone, June has been an awesome striper catching month as you see in a in a few pictures below. Live bait was working good in June . Trolling in June was putting stripers in the box also .
Well here it is July!!! Where has the spring gone???
Don’t get too disappointed because here on Lake Martin you can still catch a big trophy in July. Just 2 years ago in July we boated a 45 lber and a 25 lber the same day and same boat. I’m not saying July is your best chance for big fish, but it definitely can happen. With Lake Martin being one of the best striper lakes in the south and a vacation destination for so many from around the country we as fishermen and fisherwomen can still enjoy catching even with numerous recreational boats on the lake. How? Well my guide service has it narrowed down to a real early morning live bait approach which pays off very well then when boat traffic starts heating up, we switch right over to running downriggers deep and a lot of the time right in the same areas the heavy traffic is in. So what I’m saying is there’s always a way to boat stripers. Some days may be challenging but it can be done. If your not an early riser then go the last couple of hours in the evening and you too might be pleasantly surprised.
July is also a big month for boating catfish and for sure big bream. Take those grandkids off your dock and let them have fun. My grandkids catch coolers full of bream by simply using old bread their KayKay saves for them.
Get out and enjoy what our lake has to offer this month who knows you might even catch a world record .
Until next time tight lines!
