What are some good baits to use in some stained water where you are able to see maybe see down 6” - 1 foot down?

Always found a big silver bladed spinner bait worked best in dirty water.  Lots of flash and vibration.  Use as big a blade as possible to help the vibration.

Anything with flash or vibration.

big profile baits, in fire tiger, blacks, blues and browns. lots of scent. Slow the bait presentation down. something that makes noise, pushes water, can smell and see. Multiple casts in the same place, let the bass have a chance to locate the bait. Don’t be afraid to throw in 15 times if you think a bass is there.

Lot of bass will hold tight to cover and there strike zone will be small. Although i hate fishing jigs, a jig or a t-rigged worm may be your best options.
