Any of you cats ever fished Lake Eufaula? Me and the FIL are planning a camping/fishing outting down there here real soon. I was curious if anyone had any tips? I've never fished it. I haven't been fishing in years. But I'm starting to get excited. Been looking at new bait casters all morning. Lol

Tip... take a pole, some lines, some bombers, some hooks, some bait and you're set!

Don't forget insect repellent and sunscreen!

Definitely not a new hobby. I used to keep a collapsible rod/real, cane pole, and tackle box in my truck at all times. We went probably four or five days a week when I was in high school.

What you got to fish with currently?
A little bit of everything. My favorite two are probably a little Daiwa spinning Outfit with an ultra light action rod for bream and crappie (makes them feel like a trophy no matter how big) and my Abu Garcia spinning for bass. I have an older Penn spinner my grandpa have me that's really nice and a Shimano low profile bait caster my dad gave me. That's just to name a few. I have quite a few other including a fly rod.

Boat. Might do a little Bank fishing at night at the campsite. And as far as species, whatever is hitting good. Probably mainly bass though.

Can't go wrong with jigs, crankbaits, swimbaits or jerkbaits. It just depends on what they want to bite on that day. I've had really good luck in open water with bullshad mulit jointed swimbaits around this time of year.

Try a floating plastic frog from the boat. Find a steep bank and try and land the frog right on it or as shallow as you can get. Caught many a bass lurking near the overhanging branches waiting for a tasty morsel to drop in. Same for a really weedy area. The frogs are weedless and you can run them through just about any area.

I'll pick some up for sure.

Yeah, I read shallow cranks are doing good right now.

Natural colour works better in my opinion over loud colours. I used to land then on the water at the bank's edge with a plop, then twitch to simulate swimming out and you'd be surprised how many times it got eaten.
