In continuing my quest to catch a Lake Martin striped bass on my fly rod – on purpose – I offer this following video. In it, guide David Hare of Alex City Guide Service gives advice to people like me who are crazy enough to try it.
I say crazy enough to try it, not because fly fishing for stripers around here is death-defying. I say it because after I’ve seen David catch them on live bait, I’m probably a fool to try this.
David is admittedly not a fly fisherman, but he is an expert on striped bass at Lake Martin. That’s why I figured it would be profitable for me to ask him these questions. Hopefully they are helpful to you, too, and if you have any tips for me on fishing for striped bass in Lake Martin, or any other fresh water lake in the South for that matter, please comment below. I would appreciate it.
Like I’ve said before, if you have any questions, please do not call me. You will get a lot of dumb answers. Please contact David directly at (256) 401-3089 or via their Facebook page.
