One of my favorite places to go. I've taken my dad, brother and uncle there and we've had the time of our lives.

Thanks for posting...

The guest wasn't having any luck with crankbaits, is that common on Athens? No crank bait bite?

Lipless and crankbait bite can be really good on Athens at times.

My Uncle and I caught quite a few on square bills last weekend. It would be a little frustrating at times with all the grass. I switched to a swim jig with a trailer and started nailing them on that also.

They really do like the wacky rig though. It's killer on a drop shot when they're in deeper water too.


Here's a nice one caught on a square bill...

Crankbait is what the SAL was caught on in 2014.
Everything works at Lake Athens.
Just got to be the right bait in the right place at the right time.
I've caught fish on everything out there and then go out some days and don't catch anything with what I am throwing.
very frustrating when you throw into "schoolers" and they will not hit what you throw in there.
But Athens is a very fun lake to fish.
Easy to navigate, easy to pick spots & there are some hidden gems out there.
I have still yet to catch an over during a tournament.......but I will.

Excellent, I am finally going there on a "non-weekend" next Thursday and Friday to fish, if it is real good I will stay Saturday and Sunday too.

depends on what you call "real good".
But you better make some reservations to stay Saturday & Sunday.
With the Berkley you should have the lake all to yourself and the fishing is real good right now.
