Think of covering the water column more than the bait. Smart man once said "They're either lookin up, or lookin down."
1. Full sized white spinnerbaits and black buzzbaits. Gotta have 'em.
2. Plastics - 3" green tubes, 3" grub, 4-5" white fluke, Senko
3. Cranks - any good 2-4' diving square bill, Rattletraps, and a Lucky craft Pointer 100
Those are what I think to be strong baits in each category for catching bigger fish. And you can cover the water column top to bottom in each category. Then you just let the fish tell you what they're digging that day...or pooch off your partner...whatever.
I always try to start a float making sure I throw something different than my partner until we figure out what they want.
