Lake Eufaula Fishing Report – November 2006

GON Staff | October 24, 2006

Eufaula: Level: 2.4 feet below full pool. Temp: Low to mid 70s. Clarity: Light stain.

Bass: Good. Frogs fished over tops of grass and lily pads should get better as more bass begin to move shallow. David Lowery said he’ll have a buzzbait handy, too. If the topwater bite is slow, try throwing a slower bait like a Devil’s Horse or Pop-R. Spinnerbaits along these grass lines will be productive, and dead-sticking a Senko along these edges will produce, too. As the sun gets up switch over to bigger Texas-rigged lizards and worms. As the month progresses, fish should be all the way in the backs of the pockets concentrating on wood cover. Throw Rat-L-Traps and crankbaits. Slow it down with a jig or a light finesse worm. Fish should hold shallow until it gets 60 degrees, and then they’ll be headed back out. Look for them on man-made brush or stump rows on secondary points or any sort of staging area closer to deep water. Have a Rat-L-Trap handy in case you see schooling fish.

Hybrids: This is the month when fishing can be fast; the hybrids should school on top. Throw a 1/4-oz. chrome/blue Rat-L-Trap. Traditional areas are the south end of Gopher Ridge Island and around flats out from Cool Branch and around the causeway.
