For that depth I use 3/4 - 1 oz. Bait size is something you will have to experiment with. If there are big Gizzard Shad around, step up the size, but 5-6" would be a good start. A 1 oz Finch Nasty Thumper with a LFT Magic Shad trailer can be money this time of year. Spoons & swimbaits both have their time/place. Again, you may have to try both.
Take a kid fishing.
