Digging Texas Topaz

We are going out to Mason this weekend to dig topaz. Having never dug topaz before, I was hoping a more experienced rockhound could offer some advice. The current plan is to dig gravel from the screenbed and search it, as I figure that is where most of the erroded topaz will end up, and I don't see it being very feasible to try to break up the granite pegmatites, which I understand are where the topaz actually forms. Any advice offered that might make my trip more fruitful would be greatly appreciated.
