EUFAULA, Okla. - National Guard FLW College Fishing is headed to Lake Eufaula April 1 for the third of four stops in the Southern Conference. Forty college teams will be competing for a top award of $5,000 and a berth in the Southern Regional Championship tournament.

"I'd say 18 to 20 pounds should win this tournament," said Rayovac pro Jason Christie of Park Hill, Okla. "The fish are starting to spawn, and we've gotten quite a bit of rain lately, so the lake level will be up. It'll probably be up in the bushes, the grass and the willows, and I could see a lot of fish coming out of that kind of stuff.

"The fish are going to be real shallow," Christie continued. "Eufaula fishes more like a river than it does a lake because it's dirtier and more shallow than most of the lakes around here. I'd be using spinnerbaits, jigs, maybe a squarebill crankbait - the shallow stuff. Ninety percent of the fish in this tournament will be caught in 3 feet of water or less.

"One of the wild cards at this tournament will be the smallmouth bass," Christie went on to say. "Eufaula has some giant smallmouth, and if somebody figures them out or gets on a big school of them, the tournament could be won with all smallmouth bass. The wind could play a big factor, as well. If you get a real bad 25-mph wind, it can get pretty brutal out there."

Christie recommends targeting an area on the lake known as The Chute.

"I would try to find the semi-clear water, and fish near what's called The Chute," he said. "From The Chute, you can go five or six miles each way, up to the dam or Eufaula Cove, or down to Oak Ridge. That area right there is where the tournament will be won."

Anglers will take off from the Southport Marina located at Highway 9 East in Eufaula, Okla., at 7:00 a.m. Sunday. Weigh-in will be held at the take off site beginning at 1:00 p.m. Takeoff and weigh-in are free and open to the public.
