I find 4" YUM Dinger black/red flake (no weight) very effective for bass. I even caught a musky on one once! If you want to catch bluegills to keep things interesting, earthworms or wax worms are perfect. Just pitch them in the shallow, shaded areas.
A nice productive spot is the point by the park bench on the left as you head into the cove.
Tight lines and remember they call it fishing, not catching for a reason!
Oh I know this all too well I've been able to stalk the fish pretty well on Struble, but that is mainly due time on the water and being able to keep track for the most point of how they are patterning. I haven't been on my kayak at MC yet this year. I'll start with the point by the bench and move on from there. I tend to fish the submerged tree across from it pretty well.
I did pickup some nikko stone flies, I figure worst case the sunfish and potentially crappie will hammer that. The crappie loved the nikko tadpole at Struble.

They even put a bait vending machine on the lyndell side so you can quick pick up some redworms and have a blast. My kids love filling up the livewell with sunfish and then trying to catch them with their hands when we are finished and throw them back. With the water so high you may just pick up a nice bass or musky early in the little conestoga cove on topwater. We've caught nice bass back as far as the stream on the left when the water is high enough to let you get back there. You'll also be somewhat wind protected if it kicks up.
