Lake Martin has been on fire lately for Spotted Bass and Crappie. The last several outings we’ve been catching spotted bass on main lake points on Pointer 78 jerkbaits and 1/4oz shakeyhead worms. Find points with brush piles in 6-10ft of water and work jerkbaits in shad patterns over the top of piles with a jerk, jerk, pause retrieve. The Spots are hitting on the pause mostly for me. I’ve been pausing the bait for about 10 seconds. Then throw a 1/4oz shakeyhead worm (Green Pumpkin) in the brush pile after trying the jerkbait.
The Crappie have been suspending over brush piles in 15-20 ft of water close to main river and creek channels. Have been catching them on 1/16 oz white grubs in white. We are currently offering a limited number of Christmas gift certificates for Jordan and Martin Lakes at a $25.00 discount.
