    When I was down there 2 weeks ago, I caught a lot of threadfin around the docks feeding on grass and algae. If you can find a dock with a light on the end of it at night, that's also a good place to get bait, as the fish will feed on the insects that are drawn to the light.

    I tried to catch some perch, but there was nothing doing on that at the time. Maybe now they've started biting better. Or maybe I just wasn't fishing in the right places.
