If you do not get any information here I would fish it anyway. Like a very good friend of mine always says. "You don't know if you don't go"! cheers Good luck and let us know how you do if you go! thumb

I always wanted to try it but have a hard time not hitting Athens when I am back there. I think it would be a really good lake from my float tube especially along that long bank near the tower. May have to try it this summer after I get out of the Amarillo area.

For Athens hit the boathouses if you have a way to get to them. The ones close to the boat ramp get pounded so if you have a boat go up or down the lake a bit. I get a lot of really big gills fishing a small piece of crawler on a 1/64th oz unpainted jig head. I just pitch it out and let it sink while twitching it ever so slightly. Sometimes I even go weightless and just fish a piece of crawler on a wire hook. Get some Bobby Garland Baby Shad in bluegrass and pitch it around the boathouses for crappie. Sometimes when I do that I tie a dropper loop and put a wire hook on it with a piece of crawler for gills and can catch gills and crappie at the same time and every once in awhile a good catfish will hit the worm as well.
