Use lures that will drop gently into the water. An unweighted, 4-inch Rapala is an old school lure of this type that still produces a lot of bass and pickerel. Texas-rigged plastics are another subtle choice, rigged either unweighted or using just enough weight to keep the lure below the surface. The prime lures are plastic flukes, tubes and stick-type lures like Senkos, but grubs, worms, wacky-rigged worms, lizards and crayfish imitations all can work. These are especially good lures when fishing such fish-holding cover as fallen trees, lily pads and weedy areas.
