Capt. Sam Williams Lake Eufaula Fishing Report - March 17, 2020
Water Level 188.42 msl
Water temp mid 60’s
Water clarity Heavy stain to slightly muddy
The Lake level has finally settled down over the past week holding fairly steady. The fish are settling down and the bite is looking to get hot.
Bass are still needing noisy presentations to generate a strike. Chatter baits with creature type trailers, blade baits and loud crank baits are a great choice. Soft plastics on a jig or Texas rig are also working. Frogs and spinner baits worked over mats and pad cover are getting surface strikes. Punching the grass cover is also working.
Crappie are still holding deep but some are hitting minnows near cover shallow in the creeks.
Due to the situation with the Coronavirus situation, we have decided to move the Scott Woodruff Heart Transplant Tournament from March 28th to May 23. We respect the need to for safety and need crowds at our events to support our fundraising efforts. We pray this will not hinder our fishermen from supporting our goals.This situation is out of our control and we apologize for any inconvenience . Please contact Capt Sam Williams 334 355 5057 or Bubba Barlow 229 881 2250 with any questions . We are continuing to receive entries right along. We have not changed the date of the Alabama Childrens Classic Bass Tournament June 12 & 13. Hopefully all this confusion will be settled down by then.
We are still experiencing weather fronts that effect the bite. Locate the deeper fish with your electronics and work then into a strike. Watch the birds and baitfish in the shallows, work out these areas before moving. The fish will bite, be patient.
Get on the water with your family, memories are made for a lifetime and we have not found any virus out there.
God Bless & Good Fishn',
Capt. Sam Williams
Pray for our Military every day!
