Going to take a week off next week or week after. For those who have been our recently, when do you think it’s going to pop off..I know we’re close but how close?

They was on beds at Palestine last weekend. So I’m sure they are doing their thing at Athens.

I am headed to Athena tomorrow.

Any thoughts or things I should know?

I am staying on the far west end.

Caught them dirt shallow on flukes Sunday. Saw a few beds, but hard to see the fish with the rain.

Lots of beds. Few bass locked on .. not sure where they are though. Only thing I caught was a sunburn and one male on a bed.

Males were on beds Saturday, they are just moving up, so many people they are very skittish. Aggravated a couple into biting just for fun. Observations from the last time I was there last year, the grass spraying combined with intense pressure has already done a number on that little lake. There is grass there but not even close to what it was unfortunately.


See you on the lake and have a great day!

Absolutely. I was there Saturday. I’d power pole down along the bank and just cast a Senko up and down the shallow bank cover. I caught fish all day. No overs. But a bunch of good unders and slots.


Eat. Sleep. Fish.

Thought that was you, we were the guys in an older Blue and White Ranger who talked to you as you were working a small fish by a boat house, I was on the back deck. It was a nice day to be out, too many people for me..
