Was there 2day and did alright. Nothing big most 9-11 inches. I use a fairly small tear drop type hook baited with a peice of a green berkley gulp maggot and then either a couple real maggots or a half meal worm to cover the point of the hook. I've found that I do better jigging a fair amout - ussualy feal them hit while jigging. My hooks ussually a glow in the dark and as the sun goes down I use a light to make them glow - really makes a difference. We were catching them 2nite well after the sun was down.

I would recommend bringing corn and Velveeta cheese.
Use just a #10 or #12 hook with no swivel and a small weight about a foot up from the hook.
Keep it about two feet up when you feel the bottom and you should be good to go.
