Always carry about 10k worth of lures. You MIGHT have the right one. Seriously, there are so many factors involved. Time of year, sun, temp, time of day etc.

In general, slow natural baits when the water is calm and fast power baits when the water is choppy. Very general. Many exceptions.to this rule.

Like Mike said there are many, many factors that you need to consider beyond the water but rather than worry about all that it might be easier to deal with a few lures that will allow you to cover different depths.

1) top water - a good popper or walk the dog type bait. These are better when there isn't too much chop on the water.
2) Mid-level baits - a jerk bait or crank bait or a rattle trap bait. The rattle trap bait is a good one because you can work it at all kinds of depths. These are great when it is windy, murky or the fish are just in a feeding active state.
3) Bottom baits - Hard to beat a worm. Senko's are easiest to fish. A jig is another good bottom bait.

If I was starting out again as a young angler - I'd build confidence with a popper, a rattle trap and a worm. With those three baits, I can fish nearly all depths, and most conditions.

Then you can start buying multiple colors/sizes and combinations.

After that, fill your tackle box with all kinds of stuff you'll never throw!

I'd master a green stick worm texas rigged weightless on a 3/0 for 4/0 extra wide gap hook.   In this way it is weedless.   I fish this set up for  much of the year when the water is relatively calm or slightly windy.   You can also fish the same bait wacky rigged for a little variation.

When it gets really windy, it's hard to fish this set up w/o any weight.  I just can't feel the pick ups as well.  Plus I don't think the worm sinks as well in the windy current.

I use a relatively inexpensive rod for this technique.  I do use braided line, and then splice it into fluorocarbon for about the last 2 or 3 feet.

So much water.  So many lures.  So little time.
