Lake Eufaula Fishing Report November 2018

GON Staff | October 30, 2018

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

Bass: Tournament angler Les Bratcher (#bigbitebaits #alxrods) reports, “Lake Eufaula is headed toward fall mode. The fishing will continue to improve each day as temps begin to cool off. This will make for some good action and some good numbers of fish. There are some fish out in their deep haunts, and some that are moving toward the hydrilla. The anglers I have talked to who are catching them deep talked about crankbaits and big finesse worms. The hydrilla guys are using a variety of topwaters, ChatterBaits and rattle baits to get bites. Some anglers are punching the grass, as well, and doing well. Things are on the upswing, and I look for some big bags to start rolling in. Tight lines till next time.” Guide Sam Williams reports, “The cooler water is moving the fish shallow longer, as they feed on the bait under pad cover and shore cover. Topwater frogs, blade baits and topwater poppers are doing well. ChatterBaits and lipless crankbaits worked on the edges of the cover will work when the topwater bite slows. Deep trashpiles and structure will work with crankbaits and Carolina rigs.” Tournament pro and guide Chad Miller fished the Alabama Federation tournament on Saturday, Oct. 20. “The bass seemed like they were half and half on the shallow stuff and on the ledges. Most of folks caught them on the shallow bite, but that’s what most of the people were doing. I didn’t like to have to get in line behind everyone fishing shallow, so I found two schools cranking ledges. The lake dropped 6 inches those two days, but the shallow bite was still good.”
