So what would you try next?

"I have laid aside business, and gone a'fishing."
"I have fished through fishless days that I remember happily without regret."
"If all politicians fished instead of spoke publicly, we would be at peace with the world."

Instead of different sizes/colors a different presentation might have worked: T-rig, C-rig, dropshot, splitshot, weightless, etc. That or varying the speed/cadence of your retrieve, fast, slow, hopping, crawling etc.
Maybe you were in the wrong place too?
I agree with the above post, I would have slowed way down and tried a different presentation rather than change color,
I have also found that when it comes to friends, a good friend will come and bail you out of jail, but best friends will be right there beside you saying d**n that was fun !!!

There's hundreds of techniques, the one your talking is twitch/pause. What other ways were you trying?
I thought when you cast let it hit the botton and then a small jerk wait and another and so on. Do you actually retrieve? If so how?

As far as switching lures, I always have one horizontal lure and one vertical lure tied on. Most times here in Louisiana that comes in the form of a Rage Tail Craw (vertical lure) and a spinner bait (horizontal). Both of those lures are versatile enough to fish a million different ways.
Unconventional tactics sometimes work. Swimming a worm or hopping a spinner bait and things of that sort. Find cover and structure and target them like there's no tomorrow.

At times this will drive bass crazy. I have had some of my best days using this trick,
Also find what they are feeding on. Right now in my waters the Manhaden are swimming in schools and the bass are tearing them up. I use a Rapala Shad Rap in the shallow version and they pounce right on it.
