Lake Eufaula Fishing Report – February 2020

GON Staff | January 30, 2020

Eufaula: Level: 1.9 feet below 190 full pool. Temp: Upper 50s. Clarity: Stained to muddy.

Bass: Tournament angler Les Bratcher reports, “The fish are biting, and they are biting good. I have heard lots of good reports of lots of Eufaula bass being caught shallow on a spinnerbait, swim jig and ChatterBait. One angler caught a 9-lb. largemouth recently, and there have been quite a few good bass caught this week. The fishing will only get better if we don’t have any cold weather and the water stays stained and high. #bigbitebaits #rangerboats #alxrods

Guide Sam Williams reports, “Many bass are suspended in the creeks and might be anywhere from 5 to 28 feet deep. It takes a noisy bait to attract attention and get a strike. A ChatterBait and Rat-L-Trap are a good choice. Suspending jerkbaits are a good choice, as well. Pull them down in the schools, and stop the retrieve and let them slowly rise a few feet, and pull them back down. Red-colored baits work well in dirty water. The bass will be spawning again soon. If you know of shallow areas where they worked before, these areas will get a hit on the bedding fish. Shaky heads and noisy jigs will work.
