Get yourself a few kastmaster lures.
I think they are the easiest and best way to get you into a fish using a lure.
You can work all parts of the water column with them. I use them as my search lures.
Try to keep em close to the bottom whenever possible without getting hung up.
Size them according to the water your fishing making sure they can swim without getting tossed around, dropping straight down or from riding too high.
