Lake Eufaula Fishing Report March 2012

GON Staff | February 29, 2012

Eufaula: Level: 1.4 feet below full pool. Temp: Mid 50s. Clarity: Good stain.

Good. Sam Williams said bass are biting well. “Jigs and bottom rigs are catching good fish around the shorelines. Topwater early and late will produce some bites. Fishing deep around sunken structure is good with jigs or crankbaits. The lake level is up over 4 feet recently, and all the vegetation that had started to germinate in the warmer-than-normal winter will now make great cover for the craws and baitfish. Spring is going to be really hot on Lake Eufaula,” Sam said. “The fish are healthy, sores are gone for the most part, and the fish are growing. If you want to do your part to make them grow faster, eat a few of the 14- to 15 1/2-inch bass. They are too numerous and are all fighting for the same food sources.”

Crappie: Getting hotter, according to Sam. “Trolling the ledge tops with minnow-tipped jigs is a good combo. From mid-morning to midday is a good time frame. If you want to add to the excitement, add a lipless crankbait to the mix. The hybrids and bass are feeding on the same shad as the crappie.”

Catfish: Good. “Bottom fishing is steady on the drops with cutbait. Take a good book, and relax between bites. You will usually have a hot bite to keep you busy,” Sam said.
