U know AH is such a good lake because of all the timber. Points n smaller, not main channels should b good to get started. Heavy line with a good size reel (drag) will come in handy to horse those cats out n away from visible timber. Once they realize they got a hook in em they will dive right into it. U may also want to tie your kayak off at 2 points so it doesn't spin especially when your battling the big 1. Try vertical drop lines or an adjustable float rig instead of drifting. When fishing vertically u move or let the waives twitch your bait. Give it 10-15 min max, if they don't bite within that time be ready to move to another depth close by or other area. I don't know if u have sonar but most often, u Find the bait, u will Find the fish. Not sure u will b able to drift fish with wind on AH but in certain areas because of all the flooded timber. U may have to go on no wind days & move your bait with your paddle through the channels because they r not straight for long. Bass boats run the main channel WOT. For that reason fishing the main channel wouldn't b my 1st choice. I'll also suggest an adjustable float rig. U could also try some limb lining! Just b familiar with the laws if u do. Trot lining from a yak is a no no if u r anyone is thinking about trying it, Don't.
