Hello and welcome to BFT. I like the berkley powerbait trout worms and mice tales. Sometimes I'll rig them on a dropshot type setup and sometimes weightless. they aren't very expensive, about $3-4. You can fish them actively and cover water.
If you do want to target the larger fish you could throw rapala minnows in silver/black and rainbow patterns. Good luck and enjoy!
