You might want to look into what this guy is doing:
That would work if he could use a jig, which he already said, and I quote, "Itll be impossible to use a jig".
Having said that, I would fish something slow, and methodically. Like basser said, I wouldn't pick this time of year to start throwing a Scum Frog, but the weather in Nebraska is a little different than in KY.

There are always spots where you can fish a jig. Otherwise, the Fat Ika weightless and weedless is another option.
Since the OP said he was shore bound as well, reaching these fish may be next to impossible if the bass are in the deeper sections and they are beyond casting distance, however, jig's such as a grass/brush jig should help him get in that tough stuff and come through it, I have had several really thick vegetation areas that I fish with Seibert Outdoor's jigs, they come through pretty good, although I am not familure with this particular area in the OP's post, I feel pretty confident the quality jigs that are out there will/should be able to perform this task.
That's what these jigs do, it's what they are designed for, If they did not work as intended, I personally would be speaking to someone and give them some feedback about the performance of their product to help them make the product better.
My thought is that it could be possible the OP just simply does not have the right jig for the scenario he/she is presented with.
