Some of the guys I used to work with said they got started right after labor day.
When you get those cool nights with the dead calm water, you can hear them jumping in the shallows while feeding.
Cast out a Bomber or Rapala and let it sit till all the ripples are gone on the water, then twitch it now and then on the retrieve.
They will jump at it, but might miss it the first couple times, be patient.
i have taken them on just about everything i use for bass. not sure were your fishing but we have been getting them in 6-10fow the last few weeks out in the bay. with this rain it will be a few days before the water gets back to normal. good luck
