I would use live worms on a size 6 or 8 hook. Ultralight rig with 6 lbs test line. Use a size five shot about 4 to 6 inches from the bait. Would cast by brush piles,docks,structure,etc. Try to find drop offs and fish the edges. Never fished your area before but these pointers will work anywhere. Good luck and let us know how you do.
Side Note: Strong cold front will be blowing in dropping temperatures. Sunfish will be scattered and moving to deeper water.
