My best offer is a c-rig or texas rigged plastic, crainkbaits, and i've even used tubes with 1/2-3/4 ounce head bounced around structure. Try adding some scent and hold on sometimes that "log" u think you snagged starts moving ;D.

It depends on the kind of lake.  If its a lowland resevior deep means 15ft or even less.  In canyonland reserviors it means as deep as 100ft.

In those lakes where deep is around the 20ft zone i would use, carolina rigs, heavy spinnerbaits, crankbaits such as DD22 (Bill NOrman lures) strike king model 5, worms fished texas or ball head rigged.

In deep clear lakes where fish can be caught in 100ft of water i use small 3" worms with a drop shot rig, dart headed 6" worms, Football headed spider grubs such as Yamamoto  Hula Grubs.

My #1 bait is a Micro Munch Tackle El Gordo tube, T-rigged, 1/16 - 1/8 oz bullet or barrel weight, with a bead, unpegged. I also fish a GYCB Kut-Tail, same rigging.

One tactic that guides like to use on our lakes in Tx is spooning a nickle finish spoon on the roadbed around the channels edge in 15-25ft.  

Every thing else mentioned above are all solid tactics for this time of year.

Other then what others have said try using a Rinky Dink (Tail kicker) lure. It is a lead weight shaped like a small fish usually about 2 inches long and weighs 1/2 ounce normally. They also have smaller 3/8 ounce ones. It has a single Colorado blade on the back of it.

What I like about the Rinky Dink is the line runs through the top of the bait and out the bottom where you tie your treble hook to it. That way when the fish jumps with it the bait slides up the line and can't be used as leverage against itself. Other similar baits are all attached to the hook and in my opinion don't perform as well.
