Thanks for all the help, guys!  I ended up only fishing this afternoon/evening until about 7:30. I decided to keep it simple and just target cats with stinkbait. I had some success and ended up with a dozen small cats with the biggest being about 18-20 inches**.  Over all I feel like it was a fun trip in a new place!  Thanks again!  If anyone has any questions about the specifics on the gear and everything just let me know.

**The fish in the picture was the first not the biggest. I didn’t take any other pics since nothing was very big.
