Fished Athens from the kayak on Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning, hunting sunnies for a few fish fries. Brought home 15 good sized ones and probably tossed about 20 back, along with a few bass, crappie and one catfish. All fish caught on small jigs, in green, gold or pink. Nearly all the biggest ones came from one dock. Pic is from Monday's catch. [Linked Image]

From 10 feet to 5 feet. Sorry about the upside-down pic; no idea why that happened or how to fix it.

Fishing Athens without me should be criminal! Nice gills. I should be fishing Athens in the tube in a week or so.

I am on a fishing hot streak. Hit the Galveston surf early Saturday morning with my son and found gentle waves and relatively clear water - rare for Galveston. We also found 20 speckled trout using spoons and Rattletraps. Freezer now stocked with sunnies and specs - good eating ahead!

Excellent post! Can't wait to get back to Athens. Nothing better than big bluegills on a fly rod from a kayak.

@ JCG57, my brother and I were at Lake Athens this past weekend (6/29) and we caught SEVERAL NICE gills. A lot of them still had eggs and they were not as healthy as I thought they would have been. Just wondering if you noticed the same thing?

Not sure what you mean by "not as healthy as I thought". All the fish I caught appeared to be healthy, except for one redear sunfish that had a sore on its side. If you are referring to their weight, they looked fine to me (and the first batch tasted delicious!).
