Athens is one of my favorite lakes because it's small and easy to navigate. It's been over-fished a little here lately because a Share Lunker was caught ...more earlier in the year and it's gotten a lot of media attention- but still a great lake. If, you plan a trip out, hit the little cove right by the launch. I've had some good luck flipping by the lillypads. Another good spot is right in front of the dam. Fish the south side of the dam in front of the boat docks where the water hits 18-20ft deep.
