Anyone willing to help me out on this lake?
I have never been but am headed there next Wednesday. I'm meeting my brother there, he lives in Kilgore. Athens is about half way.

Thanks for your help!

Good luck after these next days of super cold weather... Gonna drop those temps and with the wind my muddy up some spots. I havent been there in quite a while but from all the reports ive seen its been tough!

If i was going I would throw a jerkbait, jig and an a-rig. Good luck!

I would skip Athens. It's been slow on that lake lately and lots of pressure.

Thanks for the advice! We know it will likely be tough. Just not many other options between us. Is there a better lake in the area ?

No...... Period.
A tough Athens is better than most lakes when fishing good.

im a guide on this lake. cartersfishingadventures.com
fishing is slow and hard at the moment, because of all the new water, the fish don't know where to go or what to bite. but when u get a bite its usually a good one.

contact me if u want to take a trip in the spring to catch as many fish as u want. 9033407811
