If you knew a spot that usually held fish, or some kind of structure, sure you could do good casting to them. Specially into the Fall. I have heard about the rocks there in front of SSP being good, another spot that would probably be good would be the mouth of the Rasin River, if that is where the freighters go into just South of SSP. Specially if there is a channel there for the freighters. My guess would be anywhere in that area October into November would be killer after dark. Would probably be best to have a kicker or go with another boat to be safe, ain't like your gonna flag anyone down out there that time of year after dark. As far as lures a 1/4 or 3/8 jighead with a white twister is hard to beat. 1/4 if fishing 10 foot of water or less, 3/8 if deeper. XR50's and rattletraps are also very good, along with rapalas, bombers, etc.
