    Kevin,
    Here are some quick tips for you.
    Baits:
    Shad - Blues and channels
    Punch Bait - Channels and blues
    Live Bream - Channels, Blues and Flatheads

    Rigs:
    If your fishing around a lot of rocks use a slip cork rig. I know there are some pictures of that rig on this forum. For bottom fishing I use a Carolina rig with 20lb test main line, 3/4 to 1 oz egg sinker, barrel swivel, 6"-12" leader. Finish that up with a #4 trebble hook for punch bait or a 2/0 to 5/0 octopus hook for shad or cut bait.

    Let me know if you have any more questions. I'll be more than happy to help you out.
