On a falling tide, you might try th north side of Bull Shoal, in East bay. Most folks call it Hannas Reef, but it is not. It is the only island in east bay, We have caught a lot of 2/5# drum there, using a dead shrimp on a jig head. There is a deep cut right next to the island ,on the north side, and thest where we fish.
