Grand River (Sterns Bayou) has been really quite good this year for producing some quality fishing.
My recommendation is that you bring along both rats and a sumo frog for doing some padding as there are a lot to hit. Also try working the drop offs with a 4" seaweed/watermelon colored tube bait with blue fleck in it (looks like a bluegill). This has been pretty productive for me recently.
If fishing with a Pop-R or equivalant at night be careful in close by shore for big dog fish that would love to steal a $5 lure from you!
