Lake Eufaula Fishing Report November 2014

GON Staff | October 29, 2014

Eufaula: Level: 0.5 feet below 190 full pool. Temp: Low 70s. Clarity: Light stain.

“The fishing on Lake Eufaula is hit or miss right now,” said tournament angler Les Bratcher. “Some fish are being caught both shallow and some deep. Most anglers are making the choice one way or the other and sticking with it. The Eufaula Bass Trail fished Saturday (Oct. 18) with 21.52 pounds taking first place. The bags varied from shallow to deep, but overall it was fairly tough. The water temp is falling, so I expect things to get better day to day. The consensus around the landing was jigs and worms deep, with the shallow-water guys using frogs, topwaters and moving baits.” Guide Sam Williams reports, “The shad and fish are in the grass and pads. Our threadfin hatch has been great, and the fish are in great shape. Bass are hitting Senkos and jigs around the cover. Frogs and topwater baits are also working well. When the shallow bite slows, move to the shallower ledges and work deep cranks and Carolina rigs.”

Crappie: Good. Sam said, “Crappie are doing well if you locate deeper brushpiles. Minnows and jigs are the trick. There are some good slabs coming in. The cooler weather will make it more comfortable to be on the water. Keep plenty of sunscreen and water, watch for the stumps, and enjoy your time on the water.”
