Top lures at Lake Eufaula Open 2024

See the lures used by the Top 10 in Oklahoma during the St. Croix Bassmaster Open at Lake Eufaula presented by SEVIIN.

Rapidly changing conditions greeted the St. Croix Bassmaster Open presented by SEVIIN field at Lake Eufaula in Oklahoma. After heavy rains moved through the previous week, the water fell dramatically during practice, leaving anglers wondering if a consistent pattern could be found. 
Even still, plenty of limits crossed the weigh-in stage as well as several bass that measured more than 5 and 6 pounds. Several of the top finishing anglers found bass grouped up while others had to scramble around and junk fish to achieve success in this tournament.
On the final day, Easton Fothergill made an unscheduled stop and it paid of in a big way as the 2023 Bassmaster College Classic Bracket winner landed the biggest bass of the tournament, an 8-12 largemouth that ultimately lifted him to victory with a three-day total of 52-8.
There are plenty of different ways to catch a bass when the warm summer months arrive. Whatever your favorite way is, Bass Pro Shops has you covered with the best selection of lures and tackle. You can find all of the baits used by the anglers this week at Lake Eufaula at
