Spring on Logan Martin Lake By Reed Montgomery / Reeds Guide Service (205) 663-1504 Birmingham, Al. Website: www.fishingalabama.com Logan Martin Lake has its ups and downs...literally. The lake level was down as much as five feet during this past winter low pool. Heavy rains of 6-7 inches brought the lake up 7 feet (in a couple of days) in early April. It was 2 feet over normal, full pool lake level. Then, on April 10th it was dropping down again. But usually, by the end of April it is at full pool and will remain there until Fall, when the lake is lowered again for winter pool. During Spring with the lakes rising waters, new growing weeds and bass bedding, there are a lot of big bass in water less than five feet deep. Some big bass are only in one foot of water all throughout April and May, during a spawning time and post spawn period. These are largemouth bass that hang around any weeds, wood or rock cover, bedding in the shallows. Spotted bass will bed along creek mouths, points and around islands or rocky banks. Red clay banks or sandy small pebble rock bottoms are ideal spots for "spots". As weeds begin to bloom anglers should try buzz baits, frogs and floating worms and soft jerk baits. Around the lakes new growing weeds fish with more open water treble hook topwaters, crankbaits and lipless lures. Also try spinnerbaits and chatterbaits in and around weeds, wood and rock cover. * Both bass species hit plastic lures fished on the bottom. Worms, lizards, crayfish imitations, tube baits, jig combos, creature baits and small finesse plastics too!
