This weekend Mike Tate and I decided to give Lake Athens, home of The Texas Fresh Water Fisheries Center, a shot. What a beautiful lake!
The water was slightly stained, but fairly clear and around 75-76 degrees. We began the morning on the northwest of the 2495 Bridge.
We began hitting the Lilly pads and flooded grass lines around boat docks with weightless Senkos in 1'-5' of water.
We moved to the other side of the lake around 11 am and landed a few more, again on a grass line next to an isolated boat dock and landed ~ 8-10 fish. A few 18" fish, which were slot fish (16"-24" for Athens), and the rest being 16" and under.
All said it was an awesome day on one of my -now favorite lakes!
