...and the wacky rigged Senko and finesse worms.

If the fish are deep what about a crankbait or a suspended jerkbait?

Jig may work, too.

Let us know how you do and what worked best.

Buzzbaits in the early morning and also at dusk from when the sun goes down below the tree line untill after dark.  Look for weed beds and cast a weedless senko near it.  Don't be afraid to fish the shore at high noon with senkos, brush hogs, and other soft plastics.  From 11:00-2:00 is a great time to fish for big bass.  Especially because half the fishing world thinks fishing during the day is worthless.  How wrong they are!

C-rig to find structure, perhaps you can reach out and touch someone with the extra weight.  Find the cover you would normally fish from the boat, except you are now fishing it from a different angle.

Flipping from shore is possible. Something a lot of people don't think about is that you can sneak up on fish that are holding on the shoreline.

If you ever see anyone "stalking" up to shore to fish, don't think they are stupid. It can be done and can get you some really nice fish. It does work best in stained (or murkier) water where the fish can't see you.

Some of my better fish have come from sneaking up on a tree and flipping or pitching under it.
