Logan Martin Lake

Logan Martin is nicknamed the “Lake of a Thousand Coves” and provides 275 miles of shoreline along its 48-mile stretch of the Coosa River.

Between Logan Martin Dam on the south and Neely Henry Dam on the north, the lake covers more than 15,000 acres.

Anglers come here in search of the largemouth bass and Coosa River spotted bass and, no doubt, are told the stories of the all-time BASS Masters Classic records that have been set here for heaviest total weight, most bass caught, most limits caught and largest winning weight. Thanks to 245 miles of shoreline, the lake is home to a number of fishing guides as well as marinas and boat ramps.

What you’ll catch

  • Largemouth bass

  • Spotted bass
