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 heavy rains have left the river really muddy. The fronts have the fish very confused and very hard to interest in a hit on most offerings. Bass are doing best on spoons jigged vertically in the schools when located on your electronics. It takes patience to work up a hit. The fish are still feeding heavily on the shad and are not hungry. The fish we are catching are in very good shape. The fishing will improve as the water clears up and the weather fronts stabilize. Look for the bird activity and concentrate on these areas where the shad are schooling.

Crappie are still deep on trash piles and being caught on minnows. Look for these trash piles in 12 to 18 feet of water.

We still need community help with our efforts to do fundraising for our local hero, Scott Woodruff for his heart transplant. We are working with the National Foundation for Transplants to assure the funds are available for the post-op med’s. Please pray about joining our efforts in 2020. Contact Capt. Sam Williams, 334-355-5057 for information. We welcome your ideas.

Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas.

God bless and good fishin’.

Capt. Sam Williams
