They roost in standing timber. bacon is the best as it mimics the sound of the water turkey's plops the best. but, the key is to soak the bacon in water overnight so it turns white and floats. you'd be surprised what you will catch. 50lb+ easy on certain lakes. they hit it on the surface, not the bottom.

The Crack of dawn is the best...

Did that on Fork once. Unfortunately I was in FIL's pontoon boat with only light tackle. Minnows with light weight work well too.
