The Eufaula Tribune will publish a Lake Eufaula Fishing Report in each weekend edition with local fishermen. We will also publish pictures when possible. If you’d like to have your fishing photo published, email it to

Sam Williams -- The rains this week are moving the fish more to the shallows. The bass are hitting top-water baits early. Buzz and spinner baits are working well. Frogs are getting to be more consistent. Worms and creature baits on jigs and Texas rigs are the trick as the morning moves along. Deeper fish are hitting spoons and big plastics near cover on the ledges.

Crappie are getting better on the deeper cover with minnow tipped jigs.

The pan fish are still eating wigglers on the flats, the winds have hindered these trips of late but the shell crackers are still biting.

Catfish continue to work on the jugs in the creeks baited with cut bait.

Visit, get signed up for our newsletter. The changes for the 2020 tournament will be announced in the next few weeks. You do not want to miss this exciting announcement. We still need volunteers and business support for Scott Woodruff and his journey for his heart transplant. You can contact Capt. Sam Williams at 334-355-5057 for information about the National Transplant Foundation and how you can help our local hero.

Enjoy what God has provided for us on the river. The time you spend on the water with your family will create memories your kid’s will talk about for generations.

God bless and good fishin’

Capt. Sam
