Stable weather as fish come off spawn, working baits through the grass or finding isolated hard cover or docks will be good strategies.
Water temperature will be in the mid 70s this week. NBC Ch. 4 meteorologist "Weather Kim" Martucci says, “A rainy start on Monday with highs in the mid 80s. Nice Tuesday through Thursday with mid 80s falling to the upper 70s. Friday into the weekend a good chance of rain. Mid 60s for overnight lows.”
Starting with morning low tides, try walking Lucky Craft Gunfish, or popping Lucky Craft G-Splash. Either GAMMA 20 pound test Torque braid or 10-pound Copoly. Try various speeds. Fish are just beginning to hit on top, so give it a try.
The two most effective post spawn approaches are swim jigs and swim baits. For the swim jig, slowly crawl through the grass, snapping free and pausing. Attach a lively craw trailer. Crawfish or black/blue patterns work well. Attach to braid or GAMMA Edge fluorocarbon line. Same line for the swimbait. Use a 1/8 ounce weighted Mustad swim bait hook. Also peg a 1/8-ounce bullet weight to the nose. Lift and drop, slowly swim, and snap free from grass. For both, use a power sweep hook set.
Dock fishing comes into play too. The best docks are on flats without grass. With grass, some post spawn fish are starting to move to them. Sunny days and high tides are best. Fish will move to grass with falling tides. Pitching Texas rigged Mizmo tubes on 3/0 Mustad Mega Bite hooks to pilings will work.
