dtFAT03 in olive shiner is my favorite crankbait. anything in a natural looking silver or gold color is fine by me.

Sexy Shad

Olive green with a white belly is money too.

For square bill shallow divers I almost exclusively throw firetiger or black back with chartruese body. Red craw ain't bad either

Olive Shiner is a good one, too.

Down here in the Mobile Delta I have great success with anything in a black splatterback. Especially a Bandit 100.  :)

Brown with black stripes down the side and an oragne belly. I have a Cotten Cordell big O in this pattern and that lure has caught me many quality fish. I use it in both clear and stained water with success. Second would be a blue and silver with a white bottom.

Tennessee Shad

Chartreuse Black Back

X2 The Excalibur has some really good looking XCS's in these two colors. I also like the citrus shad from them as well. In Rapala colors I would most certainly go with their Parrot, Hot Mustard, or Chartreuse Shad.

In the case of the DT Fat03, I like the orange belly, gold side, brown back color Rapala calls "Crawdad". Second would be brown back/chart belly.

Chartreuse w/ blue back and red craw.... if i get a third option it would be white with blue back. The blue back CB's are thrown around docks and lay downs and the craw is thrown around rocks.

I like the Lucky Craft RC 1.5 in the Ghost color & Copper Green, I've done extremely well with these baits.

1. Something that looks like a shad.

2. Something that looks like a crawdad.

3. Something that looks like a bluegill/green sunfish/redear/bream.

BTW the DT Fat03 is a great crank to start with, but branch out a little, there are days when that big bait with wide wobble just doesn't seem to interest them. You don't need to spend a ton of dough, Bandit 100's are a good smaller square bill, and they often work very well for me on days the DT Fat03 is not catchng much.
