agree with gatorboy too.

Some of my choices for the nasty water around here are:

-10 inch black worms,junebug.

-5-6 inch black/blue senkos or any dark variation of.

-black/blue or chart/white chatterbaits with gold blades.

-3/8 to 1/2 oz spinnerbait tandem style with #5 colorado and #5 1/2 -to #7 willow blades with chart-white or white and black(shad) skirts.This is a shallow water slow rolling hawg catching combo.

-loud topwater such as a super spook jr,wounded spook,black torpedo,chug bug,spro poppin frog in black.

-3/8 black on black cavitron buzzbait

-Gambler flappin tail worms 8 inches.These are killer in dirty water.

-Rage tail craws in dark colors with rattles for flippin and pitching.

-rattle traps 1/2 oz in black,baby bass,gold,silver blue back/orange belly

These are some of my favorites.As a GENERAL rule use darker colors and baits that put off vibration and or noise.

Make sure you fish very tight to or directly into cover.

use real dark color baits , they cause a silhouette that can be seen by the bass . kinda the same principal as you would use night fishing.

Spinnerbait with colorado blades.  I fish this kind of water a lot, and the thumping of the colorado blades makes it easy for the bass to find the lure.

Big spinnerbaits with a black skirt and a single Colorado black blade, buzzbaits, big jig and pigs, prop baits, and shallow running, loud crankbaits/wakebaits like a Bandit Footloose, Strike King Spence Scout, and the Mann's 1 Minus.
