I find them on areas near water, higher up, they are most common on the sides of trees, and bridges. I'm in GA though, so hunting may be different.

If you check shrubs around chest heigh you might be able to find some Zelus species, Repipta taurus, Sinea species, etc...

I bet that beating bushes/tree branches with a catching cloth underneath could be effective. I know some assassin sps. like to hang out in shrubbery.
