Capt. Sam Williams Lake Eufaula Fishing Report - 06/11/2022

Water Level - 188.05 msl

Water Temp - 86

Water Clarity - Perfect stain

The warm weather has arrived and early and late fishing is the most comfortable for fishermen. The mid day heat is the best time to work on the bass that are transitioning to the first drop to find cooler water. Slow moving swim jigs, white with white trailer has been a good bait to present. Where you can find pads or grass, Frogs, and blade baits are working. As this action slows, use the jig or a Texas rig with red shad, green pumpkin or watermelon candy. These need to be worked slow as well. These have been so many tournaments lately, these fish must be coerced

Into a strike. Square billed crank baits in shad colors and lipless crank baits are the trick if you find shad or feeding fish.

 Crappie are beginning to hold better of the ledges where you find  natural or man-made trash piles. Minnows and minnow tipped jigs are the bait to use. We have even taken a few crappie on crickets while bream fishing.

 Blue gills are hot right now on crickets. Work the bank cover in the creeks. The great thing about fishing these areas, you can keep your boat in the shade as the day heats up. Use a #8 long shank cricket hook and you will get more fish in the live well. These little rascals have all been schooled in how to steal your cricket before the bobber sets up straight.

 

The shell crackers are on the flats eating wigglers. Bottom fishing for these is a lot of fun, they can put up quite a fight. You will also get some squealer cat fish that are the best eating fish on the river. Take an old syringe and inject some air in the red wigglers, the go on the hook better and the fish find it harder to strip the worm off your hook.

 

Catfish are always wanting to eat. Crawlers and cut bait on the bottom are working on the ledges. Jugs, baited with shad, cut bate and chicken livers are doing great. Jug fishing is a great way to keep kid’s focused as they watch the jugs begin to move. Take an old telescoping bream buster and wrap a hook on the end and use it to pick up the jugs when a fish is on. You will not lose as many of the big cat’s as you do by hand lining them.

 

This is the perfect time of the year to get some quality family time while fishing from the bank or a boat. These memories will be talked about at your family gatherings for generations to come.

 

Remember the October 15th, 2022 Alabama Classic Bass Tournament that supports Niemann-Pic Disease research to help find a cure for these precious terminally ill children and Darby;s Warrior Support where we take post 9/11 combat wounded and PTSD heroes hunting and fishing. Registration is now open at www.alclassic.com or call 334 355 5057 for details. Your entry fee is a tax donation and the purse is $15,000.00.

 

The Parks and recreation is bringing back the Kid’s Fishing Rodeo at Creektown Park July 22. Register your child by calling the Community Center at 334 687 1213.

 

Remember to wear your life jackets when under way to your fishing spot. Keep plenty of water and sunscreen with you. There is a lot of boat traffic this time of year, be aware of other boats running near you, the smaller boats ALWAYS have the right of way, that’s the law. We do not need ant tragedies on the lake this year.

 

Pray for one another and our law enforcement officers,  military and their families. We serve a living God  who teaches us to love one another.

 

God Bless & Good Fishn’
