Re: Hello from Bethlehem
Typically you would want to throw a Bomber Long A, right up on the sandy banks, wind at your back if possible. Long sloping points work well too, you want to throw the Bomber in shallow enough water so you feel it hitting the bottom at the beginning of your retrieve. You want to retrieve at a speed that allows you to "feel" the thump/movement of the lure, hold the rod loosely (over deep water, so it doesn't get ripped out of your hands!!) and vary your retrieval speed till you feel the the action.
It is best to throw after dark or before daylight. Be careful out there, with the lake levels low there is a lot to hit our there in the dark. Wear your PFD at ALL times and make sure you have a your kill switch attached to you and a ladder that will allow you to climb back into the boat.
I used one of those SPOT devices, so I can send an SOS in case of trouble. Highly recommended if you are going to go out at night in the winter, especially with the low lake levels. A fish is not worth your life.
Good luck out there and I hope you get them!
The reef mouth that is out from where you are talking about marks the end of a long ridge that runs from East Bank Park out to the Shoal Creek channel. That whole ridge is worth a look!
