At Lake Martin numerous anglers caught fish that bit right beside the boat. A good lesson during the year when fish are feeding heavily (prespawn, shad spawn, topwater, fall) is to fish your bait all the way to the boat before calling it quits.
Lake Martin displayed its versatility when the Elite Series field came to town. Along with shallow fishing there was a deep bite too. Here are some keys used by Adrian Avena and Luke Clausen, which helped them notch Top 5's offshore.
The Lake Martin Elite Series event was eventually won by fishing shallow, but the field had a variety of tactics. Here we explain how Roy Hawk and Takahiro Omori rose to the top of the leaderboard with a shallow crankbait.
