Winter Activities at Lake Martin

lake martin activitiesNow that the holidays are behind us and our days are (hopefully) more relaxing, you might find yourself getting a bit of cabin fever! But when you live somewhere as beautiful as Lake Martin, there’s no need for that. There are plenty of winter activities you can enjoy. As your Lake Martin real estate team, allow us to fill you in on some fun activities and upcoming events to know about!

Fishing – Fishing on Lake Martin is a great activity year-round, and winter is no exception. Boats are tucked away for winter and the waters are quiet, making it a great opportunity for catching spotted and largemouth bass. If you’d like to join a fishing tournament, the Wind Creek Trail Fishing Tournament is coming up Feb. 1 at Lake Martin, and the AWW Bass Anglers Classic Fishing Tournament will take place Feb. 22.

Running – Winter is a great season for running, as you can work up a sweat and not have to worry about getting overheated! If you made fitness goals for 2020, this is a great, free way to get into shape and enjoy Lake Martin views while you do. If you need motivation, start practicing for some upcoming races! The Russell Forest Run is coming up Feb. 29, and the Lake Martin 100 Ultra Run is March 28. This gives you plenty of time to get into shape for one of those runs!

Boating/Travel – If you love keeping up with the latest boat models and top-of-the-line water gear, traveling to boat shows is a great chance to view the latest in boating, and to get a mini vacation in this winter! Russell Marine travels to numerous boat shows. The Birmingham Boat Show is this weekend, Jan. 23-26. The grand prize giveaway will be a 2020 Yamaha WaveRunner EX Sport Watercraft.

Live Music – There is always live music to be found around Lake Martin! For example, tonight, Alex City Arts, Inc. presents Sail On, the Beach Boys tribute! This takes place at 7 p.m. at the BRHS Auditorium. Cost is $20, students and children are free. Watch as the group performs classic hits from the Beach Boys! You’ll forget it’s not summer.  If you’d like to test your own skills at singing, stop by J.R.’s Sportsbar and Grill for some weekly karaoke.

Real Estate Goals – Winter is a great time to focus on your Lake Martin real estate goals! Before boating season arrives, take the opportunity during the relaxing months of winter to zone in on your home-selling and/or home-buying goals, and to get settled into your new living space before spring and summer arrive! We’re the Haynie Team, here and ready to answer any questions you may have about the local market, and to help you sell, buy or both this winter. The sooner you start, the sooner you’ll be settled into your new lake home!

No matter what you choose to do this winter, we hope you enjoy the season!
