Lake Eufaula (Walter F George) Fishing Report for Largemouth Bass using Deep Diving Crankbaits (13'+) in Post-Spawn (Brush Piles)

Reported by Patrick Walters on Jun 22, 2020
The bass are no longer focused on spawning in Lake Eufaula and have made there move offshore towards deeper water, where there is an abundance of bait. The fish are pretty beat up after the spawn and are looking to beef back up for the summer time and try to use as little energy as possible to do so. This results in a large number of fish relating to the abundance of man made brush piles scattering all over the lake, for an easy hide out and allowing their meal to come to them. Brush piles are a great fish producer on Lake Eufaula and the hardest part about fishing them, is dissecting the type of brush and what depth the fish are holding in. Recently the water level has been high and kept a large number of the fish shallow and stopped them from making the swim to the main river ledge, their summer hangout, so finding the fish in that in between level was where I had my success, fishing the shallower brush in 8ft to 12ft of water. Fishing an aggressive fast moving bait first in the pile, then following it up with a big worm on a texas rig to clean up.
