Alabamas Best Striper fishery
Thanks to less fishing pressure, Lake Martin near Alexander City has regained the top spot from Smith Lake in recent years. The lake is full of 20-pound stripers with 30-pound fish becoming more and more common.
The next few weeks will bring the prime time for striped bass on the lake.
Runner-up - Smith Lake is no slouch as evidenced by the 36-pound striped bass caught there last week. A little warm weather and sunshine will have Smith Lake striped bass at their peak in the next month.
