It's like fishing in a washing machine unless you are in the back of a creek.

It wasn't too bad last weekend. I have seen it much worse. FYI those fish are confused!!! Scattered. We caught some on outside grass edges 10-12' and some out to 20'. Few schoolers and frog bites shallow. Best was in 10-12 edge of grass main lake.

We also caught most of our fish last weekend on 12' grass edge and a hump with some brush on it in 20 feet of water. Carolina rigged brush hog style baits. Was not typical Athens for us.

Yup. Schoolers aren't biting good and no fish of any size shallow. Unless you are good offshore, it's a grind <- I've always wanted to say that roflmao

Where is the nutman when you need him? I miss reading his numerous daily posts sharing his wealth of knowledge on Athens.
