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 email@example.com.
Sam Williams — We continue to experience muddy water conditions. Noisy baits are still the most effective bait choice. Electronics are very important right now. Locate the trash piles on the ledge drops to locate the bass. Keep your lure in front of the fish, work it slow.
Traps with loud rattles and big spoons worked vertically around these bass will get a strike. If the water is moving, the areas between the causeway and the trestle have been holding fish as well. There are plenty of trash piles north of White Oak for the deep water fishermen and down south; the shallow bite has improved. Blasé baits are the trick there. Plastics on Texas rigs and Jig’s work well on the shore cover. Red works well in the dirty water.
Crappie are still deep on trash piles eating minnows.
Cats are continuing to hit shallow jugs baited with cut bait and hotdogs.
