Default Eufala report

The fish ain't biting, but we eating good. Water color is perfect, but the duckweed has taken over. Can't throw much in this mess.

Wish I was there.
Hope it gets better!

"LAKE GEORGE IS 1.93 FEET OVER FULL, 80 S
Bass fishing is good. Top water early is a great. Think frogs and swim jigs in the shoreline grass and pads and Pop R’s and Spooks on points around the mouths of main lake pockets. A Bang O Lure with a rear prop works well early in the pockets around stumps for a quality bite. Secondary ledges and ditches on the main lake flats should hold some bass. Try crankbaits or slow roll spinnerbaits along the ledges. Main lake ledges should start to hold good numbers of bass soon. Find the greener grass patches. Blue and black jigs with blue trailers work. Trick worms also do a good job. Carolina rigs around deep cover with a creature bait also work. Also try this rig with the Zoom lizards.

BillyB you are becoming an expert on baiting holes for turtles. Maybe a bush hook tonight will catch a fish.

Set 20 bush hooks and moved my catfish hole up Kowicki Creek about 6. Just checked the lines and had 3 about 2#. This has been an expensive trip. Pulled my boat to catfish on and my motor won't pump water. Ran perfect last weekend. Having to use my trolling motor. My neighbor's house was hot when we arrived. The dryer on his AC unit was bad. $370 bill. The golf cart wouldn't charge. $500 for batteries. In his Ranger 1 deep cycle battery was bad along with his cranking battery. $200 for those. Trying to load my boat I bumped the trailer and took a swim. Eventful trip..

Caught 1 2#channel. Sat at my baited hole a while and nothing. Was dripping with sweat so called it off. Most of the minnows were still on the lines so the bite didn't happen last night. Still fun to get away for a few days.

Ended our trip today. Only caught 7 cats in 2 nights of bush hooking. Used my trolling motor to run them. Went about 2 miles up and back 5 times and still had battery left. A pontoon boat was on the water early and had about a dozen noodles out. Something was on one of them when I passed. Husband and wife on boat. She was catching crappie off the bow with a breambuster and minnows. They said they caught 48 last Friday. I know how to fish, but just ain't that good at it.

Have been enjoying all the Eufaula reports. Interesting trip and something different.
Mullet still elusive at the holes around here. Saw a video 2 days ago of acres and acres of them in the middle of the bay.

Our trip was costly and yesterday my neighbor tells me he either left one of his hearing aids at the lake or he lost it on the drive home. Said he paid $5200 for the pair.
