Lake Eufaula Fishing Report December 2012
Eufaula: Level: 2.8 feet below full pool. Temp: Low 60s. Clarity: Lightly stained.
Bass: Good. Capt. Sam Williams reports, “Winter patterns are in play now. The vegetation is disappearing, and the deep-water jig and spoon fishing is now working. Slow, deep crankbaits will work as well. Also try fishing the rip-rap and cuts with lighter jigs and finesse baits. On warmer days and warming trends, look for activity around the stems from the dying pads. The bass are still working these areas early because they hold baitfish. The water remains very low, so cautious and safe navigation is a must. Stay in the creek markers and between the river cans when underway. Use your maps on your electronics if you have them available because some of the markers are missing. There is plenty of safe water to enjoy, and the river is full of good fishing. With hunting season in full swing on both sides of the river, the water is wide open to the hard-core fisherman. Be safe, and enjoy God’s creation.”
Crappie: “It’s getting good, and we are ready for some good fishing trips,” Sam said. “The stable weather forecast for the coming weeks will make the crappie more willing to bite. They react to the changing barometer more than other fish. Trolling over the ledge tops will be good. The small Cabin Creek Umbrella rigs are a top trolling choice for the serious fisherman wanting to catch Eufaula crappie this time of year.”
