Lake Eufaula, Alabama

 

Lake Level           188.80 msl

Water Temperature    low 50's to upper 40's

Water clarity        muddy

 

The lower than normal temperatures are keeping most of the fishermen off the water.

 

Those tough fishermen who are braving below 20 degree morning temperatures are getting a few nice bass in very slow moving jig's.

 

Crappie are harder to find in the dirty water, when the winds lay and the water clears up, they will be caught on the creek ledges and on deeper trash piles, remember to keep your bait above the schools, crappie will not go down for a meal, they are always looking up, making a profile with the skyline important.

 

Catfish are also slow, a few are hitting cut bait on jugs in creeks where you can find some sloughs where the wind will let your jugs stay put.

 

Be very careful when going on the water in these extremely cold conditions. hypothermia sets in quickly with the water this cold, be sure and keep your PFD on and be safe. The river is a beautiful place on any given day, enjoy your time and be sure and eat plenty of fish, it's good for your health and good for the fishery.

 

God Bless & Good Fishn'

Bass have moved deeper for the most part, jigs with big chunks worked slow are getting strikes. When the sun comes out and the bait get’s active, the shallow bite is working, sinko's or fluke's worked under the surface will also get a strike. The fish are lethargic in cold water so slow moving bait will work best.

 

Crappie are doing well on jig's being trolled along the creel ledges. Deeper trash piles are still holding crappie, vertical jigging or minnow’s on a tight line will get some good catches for the dinner table.

 

Catfish are doing well on jugs in the creeks. Cut bait is best. When the baitfish get active, the cat's will feed shallower.

 

Hybrid's  are getting active in 15 to 55 feet. Hammered strata spoons are doing the trick. Fan cast the areas you are working 'till you get a strike. Troll over to the spot and begin vertical jigging the school.
