Lake Eufaula Fishing Report – December 2022

GON Staff | November 28, 2022

Eufaula: Level: Full at 188. Temp: 58 degrees. Clarity: Perfect stain to clear.

Bass: Capt. Sam Williams reports, “The water table has been holding fairly steady. The bigger tournaments have slowed down some, taking some of the pressure off the fish. The bass are feeding in shoreline cover early and late. Frogs are still getting action in and near the cover. Topwater plugs like Spooks and Pop-Rs are a good bet outside the cover. Spinnerbaits and buzzbaits are also getting them stirred up. Texas-rigged soft plastics in greens, red shad, junebug and watermelon candy are also good choices. We have also been working some merthiolate-colored baits sent to me by Lindsey Page from 850 Custom Baits. They are doing well on the outside cover and also used as a trailer on jigs. The deeper bass are coming on deep crankbaits in Tennessee shad and threadfin-shad patterns. Large spoons worked vertically over schools holding on ledge structure are working, too. Carolina-rigged large worms in dark colors and creature baits in black or blue are good bets.”

Multiple Species: Capt. Sam Williams reports, “Crappie are beginning to settle on the deeper structure in 16 to 22 feet of water. Minnows and jigs worked in these schools are doing the trick. Bluegill continue to like the crickets on the bank cover where you find overhangs and any grass and green growth. Cats are really eating up the cutbait on jugs in the creeks. You need to keep them corralled up like calves with these winds blowing now. If you get a good one on, you will chase him downriver in a heartbeat.”
