You can do really well during the rain, just like any other condition.  Lure selection is still based on what you're fishing, just like any other time.

Fish tend to roam more when it's cloudy and/or rainy. They seem to hang tight on structure when it's sunny.

Topwaters. I like the Torpedo and buzzbaits in the rain.

Someone once told me fish don't care if it's raining... they're already wet....

Only thing I change when it starts raining is changing into my rain gear. Their taste don't change because it's raining. They will get more active a lot of the time though, so you can usually get a bite going on moving baits.

It can be funny around here.  Sometimes the rain makes the bass bite more, and sometimes it turns off the bite. I just keep going through the tackle bag until I find something that those bass like.

Does the weight of the bait matter much ?

In the light summer rain I like spinnerbaits, inline spinners, spinflys, besides cranks and top water baits. During the middle of the day I was using the joesfly 1/4" oz bass size in fire tiger Apache. The mix of chartreuse colors seems to attract them well. The strike king inline spinner with a silver blade and black buck tail worked ok too but in the low light a brighter color can work better.

in the rain i like the inlines and spinflys. I stand in the middle of the drop off on shore and skip fan cast the whole area. I caught 19 bass and two weird pink and white colored fish.  They had a sunfish or bluegill shape with a pink colored back and white sides.

I get super excited when I see rain in the forecast, I always do the best in the rain. I'll usually use a popper and pop it really aggressively. If that doesn't work out then I'll resort to a crank bait for clear water and a chatter bait if there is some stain. I find that the bass are really active in the rain and I always keep a topwater out for schoolies.
