Start off at deep water docks and work a shakey head with a Zoom shakey head worm int eh watermelon color.
You can also fish the deep water humps when Georgia Power is moving water. On these deep humps go to a deep diving crank bait.
You can use a Norman DD22 in a natural shad pattern fished off the hump, or use a Carolina rig. Use a short leader of 12-18 inch with a green Zoom U tail worm.
As the water cools look for the fish to move to shallower water.
