How is Athens fishing lately? I'm heading out there tonight and tomorrow. Any tips on where and what to fish?

Plan on trying a frog early on and into sunrise, hope to catch something on a frog that type of fishing is the best.

only one on a frog this morning. Most fish came in 18-24 feet on a fb jig, Carolina rig, a rig,and 8xd. No big ones but we finally stumbled into a few more fish and ended the day with around 60 fish

The fishing was very good Sunday. At sunrise we were catching them on top water poppers and squarebills. They were schooling all around the dam and island, none of them over 2lb. Later on we had luck on wacky rigs up shallow in cover and around boat houses. My grandfather caught a 3.5 on a wacky rig. I caught my new pb that was 4.29 on a wacky. I would recommend throwing a wacky rig after about 11am. If you don't care about size it is a good time out there. Fishing was good overall.
