Fishing report

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 kmooty@eufaulatribune.com.

Sam Williams -- The Lake is fishing hot right now. Bass are shallow early and late. Good fish are hitting almost anything presented. Jigs with creature bait are a good bet in heavier cover. Blade baits are a good choice on the edges of cover. Frogs are working as well.

Crappie are concentrated on deeper cover on drops and some are coming on jigs retrieved on outer edges on outside grass patches.

Catfish are still spawning and hitting bass lures in the cover. Cut bait on jugs in the creeks are still a sure bet for a great tasting meal.

Bream are all along the banks and eating worms.

Please remember our upcoming Alabama Children’s Classic Bass Tournament. Plan to join us on May 31 at the Eufaula Community Center for a great, fun filled meeting. Everyone gets a free door prize ticket. You will get to meet 10 of our war hero’s that are being hosted by some of our loyal fishermen for a fun day of fellowship and competition fishing our tournament June 1. You fishermen consider fishing with us and supporting our efforts. See the new Henry rifle and get a chance to own it. Go to our web site and sign up for our newsletter and keep up with all that is happening at www.alabamachildrensclassic.org.

It’s getting hotter on the water, keep plenty of sun screen and water and be safe while enjoying what God has provided for us to enjoy.

God Bless & Good Fishn’
