Default Freshwater Stripers in May on Lake Ouachita

I am planning a trip to Lake Ouachita, Arkansas, May 7 -14 and I'm seeking advise on how to fish for freshwater stripers. I fished with a guide in October a few years ago using live shad and slow trolling. I have read that the stripers are up near the surface early and on cloudy days and can be caught by sight casting to feeding fish with Cotton Cordells Red Fins and other near surface baits. I was thinking that I would fish the points early and switch to live bait later in the day. I'm pretty much a novice to this type of fishing but I have fished all my life. Advise, suggestions, and hints would be greatly appreciated.
