Don't waste your time on the bridge this time of year. Focus on timber in 12-25' water and 10-16' down. Minnows are your best bet for good numbers, but if you're gonna fish a jig go with a pearl, white, or translucent type color with some black/blue flakes. A Chartruse w/ red flakes does the trick some too.
Don't expect too much on numbers if you're new to the lake. Keep moving...2-3 fish per tree is about as good as it gets. Unless you stumble across one with brush.
