Heading down to Palestine this weekend, could anyone give some tips for sandbass and hybrids? Any info would be greatly appreciated

Check on the east side of the 155 bridge by the old road bed and down by the dam

I'm "Old School". Try trolling a Bomber 6A (ASI) Silver Flash color.
It will bounce the bottom at 14 ft with 12 lb test mono. Troll in 17 ft
of water along the windy sides of structures that drop off to deep water.
The "A" store carries them. The "B" "C" and what is left of the "G" store
don't carry them. 7A's & Flat A's will also work. The Silver Flash works
well from 9AM-7PM ie...sunshine.

The Legend is speaking some truth there...
Also try bouncing some small cc spoons of the bottom if you mark them close to the bottom

I sent you a PM

There are 3 submerged bridges on old 155, where I have had large catches of white. The old roadbed and bridges are about 15 ft deep on top and are great structures - attracting shad and the whites that follow them. If you prefer not to troll (like me), park you boat over the ends of the bridges and cast on top of the old bridge, on top of the roadbed adjacent to the bridge and down the shoulders of the roadbed as it approaches the bridge. The bridges have rails, and I use my #2 Mepps rig (see recent post) and Meppps technique to minimize hang-ups on the rails. You can also fish the bridges using my "rail fishing" technique - also in one of my posts earlier this summer. I have also had some success along the dam and near the dam on the west side. Good luck!
