red clay banks, with grass. I still keep the boat in 25-30' but they will be shallow.  A-rig, C-rig, Jerkbaits, flukes, jigs.

Good luck!  I think you have to have a license for both states if you fish both.  Hopefully someone else will chime in about that, it might have changed but it used to be that way.....for some reason each state wouldn't honor the other states license. Don't forget to give us a report.

thanks...yes i ended up getting both licenses.  what a great place.  we ended up boating probably 30-40 fish in 2 1/2 days, both lm and smallies.  the first day lm were holding tight to any available cover/wood.  the next two days we spent fishing bluff walls only with jerk baits and spinnerbaits.  we found alot of smallmouth here suspended in or around the bluff walls, keeping the boat in deep water and focusing on small pockets in the walls. some fish were tight to the walls and others were out in open water.  had a great trip and will definitely be going back.
