Eric, with that being about 14 days away. I believe the upper salt water flow would have dropped enough and the water temp increased enough to say putting in at schoolhouse and working towards the upper salt would be good. Catch your gills before heading up river. Keep us posted as the time nears. The debris should settle down by then on upper salt, hopefully.

Or it might pan out if you stay out of the river and try one of the mouths of the coves in about 15ft of water with a good drop closeby I would try one of the coves on the northside of the lake. I just don't know about the river with all the cold water.

a couple other questions, how much weight are you guys using? and what size hooks? (5/0)? im new to the whole fishing thing so i dont know the name of the setup, but im going to be using a 3-way swivel putting my weight on one and the bait on the other my pole has 30lb test and im going to use 8lb test on the weight. does this sound about right?

Well, Good luck,, at Rosie,,
regarding rigs,, the weight ,, I use between 3-5 oz , and
the hooks,, I use Kahles mostly,, occasionally a J or Octapus style,, 6/0-7/0,, but, on the Kahles I use between 7/0-10/0.. depends on size of the bait..

The 3 way your describing sounds like a good place to start,,with the "sacrifice" weight line!!

Also, using a big bobber, or Float , with the bait suspended about halfway down the water column, might work, with either live or cut-bait..
and, Welcome to the USCA!!:cowboy:
