Alabama's Jordan Lake for Trophy Wintertime Spotted Bass!Author: Captain Reed Montgomery | Posted: 12/11/2011
Well, its happened before, maybe yours could be next!
Even Alabama's Smith Lake, one of its deepest man-made impoundments (with depths of over 200 feet), has given up several world record spotted bass, including one huge "spot" that weighed just under 9 pounds!
But for consistancy, while fishing water depths of only 10 feet or less during the winter months of December, January and February you cannot beat Alabama's Coosa River Impoundment Jordan Lake, impounded in 1928. (Ok some spots are deeper)
We are taking numbers of 3-4 pound spotted bass on about any outing to Jordan lake and always have a real chance at a true, Coosa River breed of Spotted bass (one exceeding five pounds), on about any cast this winter season on Jordan Lake!
Fishing below upper Mitchell lake dam in Jordan lake's headwaters you will see a narrow, rocky river-type terrain.
Boulder-strewn banks, deep rock bluffs, standing timber and an array of irregular bottom features and main lake flats, small cuts and pockets, all shield the baitfish and the spotted bass that feed on them daily, from the oftentimes very swift main lake current found here.
But this is a perfect habitat for growing some big spotted bass and Jordan lake has dozens (ok hundreds), of big "spots" those exceding 5-6 pounds, that can be successfully fooled into biting when they are feeding heavely during the winter months.
So plan a trip to Alabama's lower Coosa River impoundment, Jordan Lake, located just off of Interstate 65 at mid-Alabama(going from the state capitol of Montgomery to Birmingham) for a chance at some real big bass action!
Not only does Jordan Lake have big spotted bass for bass anglers to target during the winter season, but you may just happen to hook into a huge, tackle-testing striped bass or a big largemouth bass (either one could be close to 10 pounds), that is, if your prepared and very lucky!
But it will only happen if your there! Either several times or go with someone that has fished Jordan lake for over 30 years can you, "greatly increase your chances" at succeeding at your goal, which is catching a bass of a lifetime!
