September 16, 2019 Lake Eufaula Bass Fishing Report by Lake Eufaula Fishing Guide Clayton Batts: Water temps have dropped back into the upper 80's and made the fishing a little better but still not as it will be when it drops a few more degrees. The numbers have gone down but the quality is still there. Averaging 15-20 on a full day trip but we had those same number yesterday on a half day trip due to them pulling water. There are still some Bass up shallow around shad on certain types of grass, in between on hard spots and out deep on the Ledges. The shallow bite in the grass around shad has been extremely good this week with the wind. This bite has been lasting all day and will continue to be a strong pattern as long as the water stays above 188. Another strong pattern has been flipping heavy matted vegetation with a 1 1/2oz Flat Out Tungsten weight teamed up with a Bruiser Baits intruder. In between fish on hard spots are mainly being caught dragging, extremely slow. My go to bait is a Plum Bruiser Baits 10" Curly Tail worm worked extremely slow in the roughest stuff you can find. The ledge bite is where it is at right now for the extremely big bags and above average numbers. Time on the water behind your Lowrance units is key to finding these fish. Some schools have been moving throughout the day and will appear and disappear based on current and time of day. These fish can be caught on all your traditional ledge baits but there are a few that are drawing more bites. My number one bait has been a 1oz Jenko fishing Tremor head teamed up with a 5" Jenko fishing Tremor Shad. My second choice has been a drop shot to get them fired up. Once they are fired up swap to the Tremor Shad or Jenko CD25 get a reaction strike from a bigger fish.
Best time I have ever had in my 25 years coming to Lake Eufaula. Ever since going with the great David Cole.
My son and I fished with Lake Eufaula Fishing Guide Clayton Batts a few weeks ago. To say we had a blast would be an understatement! Clayton went out of his way to make sure we had a good time and caught some hawgs! I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to improve their fishing skills and catch some monster bass.
