..... there now than in N.Va. or here in MD. .

Largemouth Bass would be my target there , they should be hot there now .

Plastics fished slow on bottom at weed edges , 8' plus deep water .

Or if the coves are high water and plenty of tree wood laid down in them , 6" purple plastic worm (Mister Twister 6" Phenom worm - grape color) , Texas style or split shot weight , #2-#5 weedless worm hook . This is a deadly Largemouth presentation . Toss it right into the wood (even weed egdes) , very slowly drag it across bottom , feel everything on bottom (this is the key , "feel everything" on bottom , up and over stuff , let drop down again , repeat) , stop occassionly , begin dragging again . The bite is usually 2 light bumps , lower rod tip to go slack when bumped , open bail and wait for the run , during run close bail and when line begins to tighten - raise rod up high and set hook while cranking remaining slack .

tip ... lighter weight lead Texas bullet or split shot allows for slower drop when going over things on bottom (tree limbs).

The Bluegill will also mess with your worm , but they have repeated jerky bites and if you try to set the hook when the BlueGill is biting , most likely it will stretch the worm and dislodge the weedless hook ... so bring it in and check the hook before continuing (or get snagged up) .

I'd carry a couple top waters for very early morning and late eve. , but the purple twister tail worm would be my religion ... so much so that all I'd pack would be them and (a couple top waters) .
