STAY IN THE BOAT ROWS!!!! And don't be afraid to be really close to them either! I was out there a few weeks ago and was mainly on the Texas side so don't know about pads there but there were a bunch on the Texas side. Coming from the LA side I'd prob fish the Green Break area(big islands in the middle of the lake near the north shore). Easier there to go from shallow to deep quick and there should be pads on the north side of both islands. Good luck!
