February 2023-Lake Martin Fishing Report

Water Level: 483.75 (Full pool is 491.00-You can always find the current water level HERE)Surface Temperature:  52.00Clarity:  Slightly StainedWell as predicted, January did  not let us down!  This is just a small example of what winter time striper fishing produces on Lake Martin.

Moving on to February, we should continue to catch more stripers than usual per trip. I think (I know) you are going to see the healthiest fish here you’ve seen in a long time! With the abundance of bait that Lake Martin has for our stripers and other species of fish to feed on,  it is no wonder that the fish are so fat and healthy. Large catches are producing a lot of longer fish- and of course the 18” – 21” length stripers are everywhere.

February no doubt will be producing some 20-40 lb bites and hook ups.  It may not be the most consistent month for trophy size stripers, but it definitely is the start of the consistency.

With our huge fleet of boats and guides, as you would expect, we fish several different techniques and areas of the lake.  Some of our favorite and best producing ways are using live bait. However, some of our guides catch their share trolling artificial baits, casting top water plugs, and of course jigging deep with spoons and buck tail jigs.

If you would like to learn how how to catch these amazing fighting stripers then give me a call we’d love to carry you out.

Thanks to David Hare with Alex City Guide Service for our monthly fishing report.
