Basshunter you nailed it. the guys did exactly that, so i bought two lures from them (that i "donated" to some lucky person when the water drops more...lol)
caught 8 bass in 4 hours, one about 8 ", one 14", the rest 16 to 20". the water was alive, they were hitting the surface everywhere attacking bait. not for the light hearted though - wear polaroids so you can see the bottom better, and wade out to get better cast lines through the gaps in the brush. go as weedless as you can but you will still have issues.
really fun fishing in mid afternoon then it turned off like a light at 5:30. must have been a tide change.
