Monday Trivia – Lake Eufaula

Lake Eufaula, Alabama

Lake Eufaula, Alabama

Following the professional tournament trails around the country, we currently find the FLW Tour pros practicing up on Lake Eufaula in Alabama this week, also known as Walter F. George Reservoir. Word is the bass are post-spawn and starting to move out toward the deep ledges. We might see some big bags weighed in beginning with Day 1 on Thursday. But that’s the present. If you look back at the history on this lake, you’ll find a treasure trove of interesting bassin’ trivia. Therefore, in order to win this week’s Monday Trivia contest sponsored by Gary Yamamoto Custom Baits, you’ll need to sharpen up on your Eufaula history and be the first to answer the following 4 questions correctly.

  1. The town proper that sits on the shores of Eufaula and whence it got it’s name, was home to one of the most well-recognized professional bass anglers, as well as the company that he ran. Name that angler and company.
  2. There are two Bassmaster records that still stand to this day from those historic events held on Eufaula. Name those two records and the anglers who hold them.
  3. Back in 1996, this winner of a Lake Eufaula event started a new bait trend by using a novel lure to help him take the trophy, a trend that was recently reinvigorated last summer on Kentucky Lake. Name the angler and the bait/technique we’re referring to.
  4. Finally, there have only been two anglers that have won multiple Bassmaster events on Lake Eufaula over the years, each winning twice. Name these two anglers.

Answers and winner will be announced later this week (Thursday).
