The Reds will hit 1/4 crab before they hit live anything right not...they don't do much chasing when the water is real cold, C.

If you strike out on the lake side try fishing the river side--been averaging 10 reds per trip however usually only 2 to 3 keepers the rest 15 inchers or so---been using muds (they do just as well as shrimp or mullet for me plus you cant kill them) on a Cajun thunder--best tide for me is 1 to 3 hrs before low--been drifting the muds about 6 feet or so off oyster bars on the east shoreline (main river)--watch out for dead low tide might have trouble getting back to dam--either get there 1 hr before or an hour later---fishfry

I would just check NOAA website for St. Auggy city dock or inlet and add an hour and a half or so. Obviously, no tidal influence in the lake itself.. just the river behind the dam.

As for fishing, I would fish slowwwww with small artificial's or soak a quartered crab as Crusher noted. The live bait will get smoked by blues all day long in the river as they are considerably more aggressive then trout or reds in this arctic water.

Keep moving till you find fish. I usually move if I have not chuaght a fish in 15mins. Any soaked fresh dead or live bait will work well.
