I also don't want to spend a fortune.

definitely don't do what i do and spend a bunch of money on lures i rarely use.

if you're fishing the EB lakes and if you're fishing one or two rods, i always recommend the following:
1 or 2 JSR-05 rapalas (jointed shad raps) - dive around 8-10 feet on average. my favorite color is the traditional shad and silver shad.  best place to buy these is walmart.
1 rainbow trout F9 stick bait rapala - also best at walmart
1 j-7 rapala - color either rainbow trout or firetiger
1 bx-06 rapala -  blue herring color  this is my absolute best lure at sc.  don't know if its because of the lure or because of my confidence in it.  don't carry at walmart, i would imagine FW would be the cheapest.  I also have some that i stocked up on that i am willing to sell to folks at $7 each (the price i paid-i just do this to help folks).  i live about 5 minutes from shadow cliffs.  alternative to the BX-06 rapala would be the JSR-04 rapala. very similar in size and diving depth and i've caught fish on them before.
1 needlefish - firetiger - use when cloudy
1 kastmaster - 1/4oz silver/blue - use when sunny
1 TDD9 rapala - deep diver.  best when fish are deep, like when its super cold or strangely warm. 

there are lots of other lures that work that would be similar to size and running ability to the rapalas above.  these are just the ones i like the best.

That's a trout? Looks like a novelty trout throw-cushion.

What a fatty!

p.s. Thanks again for everyone sharing so much great info here.

It's a bass in a clown costume

dude, rapalas are the gateway drug. you can't just start right off with the cocaine and expect to survive.

Those rapala bx jointed shad are badass.

Panther Martin rig -- I experience major line twist, cumulative with each cast.  I have tried barrel swivel with a 12-18" leader to the PM, but it really jacks up the action.  What do you guys do about line wind up after 1+  hour of casting, or do you have a better way to avoid it?

Jigging -- man I am bad at this.  I cant keep my boat/sonar over the lure using freehand paddle to achieve Clayman's arcade fishing (helpful when spotting fish).  Next, I struggle knowing how far to cast to reach bottom depth before starting the art of 'jigging' which in my case becomes a low depth retrieve.  Do you guys cast out high and short, let drop?  Or manually unspool beneath the boat?  I am still practicing this, it has obvious potentially I cant wait to experience.

Thanks - and great thread by the way!

Spinning reel or casting reel ? If spinning then check the line roller on the pickup bail to be sure it is in fact rolling properly, light lures will sometimes stop it from moving. Put a mark on it with a sharpie to check it, then clean and oil , hope this helps you like it has me.
Remember to practice safe knots, because big fish don't just break your line, they also break your heart.

Does anybody have better success using flashers / dodgers while trolling?  Lets say within 30 ft depth.

I have had  luck with this ultraviolet seps flasher pulling a Nightcrawler. Will add split shots till I find depth they like it at.  Usually top 15 feet though

These work well slow trolled when the bites off.... the little legs twitch like crazy and the fish canít resist. I carry them in my lake, bay, and ocean tackle cuz I have had them taken by the rockfish just as hard as the trout.
