Dennis Keener, D & K Guide Service reports:

Crappie fishing is good. We have enjoyed the warmer temperature and apparently so have the crappie. . With water temps Nearing 47* on the south end of lake eufaula we are catching limits of 1 to 1&1/2 pound crappie . Lately the best method have been to spider rig the break lines of the main creek channels @ 9' to 12ft'. Using minnows and jigs. We put our first fish over 2 pounds in the boat today. I have also heard of large numbers of good size crappie caught under bridges at night.

Sand bass are also good under bridge pellers in 12' to 15'ft. Late in the afternoon.

On the south end of lake Eufaula crappie are starting to bite . We are catching 20 to 30 keepers a day on minnows and jigs 12' to 14 feet deep in narrow creek channels that open to flats water temp is currently @ 43* . On the north end the bite is (fair) with a lot of small cappie showing up at 20 feet around brush piles and boat docks.

If you like to catch blue catfish they are bitting good on cut shade off clay points in 9' to 12 feet.

Good luck stay safe and injoy the outdoors, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from your friends @ DandK guide service.

Dennis Keener, D & K Guide Service reports:

"The crappie fishing is good, especially around baited docks with deep water nearby. We've also been catching them around standing timber in 30 feet of water. Jigs are our preferred bait."

"Sand bass fishing is excellent right now. They're surfacing in the evenings on shaded flats, shad crankbaits and Cordell spot lure, silver or blue color, are working well."

"Soft plastic baits work well for black bass of wind blown points. We're also catching them off rocky shorelines where deep water is nearby."

"On a side note Dusty Keener won the Thursday evening Big Bass tournament at Crowder Cove with a 4lb bass."

"The crappie fishing has gone from good to fair. We're still catching some, but the heat is slowing them down."

White bass are now surfacing late in the evening and are being caught on Gully Whoppers. There are two real hot spots for white bass, the east end of the island in the brooken cove area and north of the 9a bridge in the oak ridge area.

Soft plastic baits continue to work well for black bass of wind blown points in 10' of water. Crank baits are producing good bass off rocky points, 6-8' deep. The Longtown creek area is especially good, south of Hwy 9 bridge.

Dennis Keener, D & K Guide Service reports:

"We're catching crappie in tree tops, 20' of water on Yum beavertails. Blue and white, black and chartreuse are our favorite colors on a 1/8 oz jig. Fishing under the bridges is also good.

White bass were caught in large numbers in the Oakridge area, north of the 9A bridge on Cordell Spot.

Soft plastic baits work well for bass. I look for wind blown points and fish in 10' of water, using a 7" Berkley Red Shad plastic worm. Crank baits produce good bass along rip-rap near the bridges.

Drifting the South Canadian near Sam's Point is producing better than average Blue catfish. Cut shad is the prefered bait."
