That's prime bass territory, lately about 6-14' down according to the latest report I could find at http://extra.mdc.mo.gov/fish/fishrt/
When the water is dingy like now you can't see through it well, and standing at that angle light refraction is also reducing your visibility. But the fish are seeing just fine as far out as needed to feed and get around. I see that a week ago a crankbait was recommended, but from shore you'd be hauling weed and losing lures, so I'd go with a heavily weighted plastic worm able to bust through the far edge of weedbeds and sink a dozen feet, no deeper than 15' to bottom, then ripped back up until falling only 6' to bottom on the last hop. Retrieve and recast to the far edge of the weeds again.
So how to know how deep the worm goes to bottom? If you punch a weedbed and let the worm drop straight down through the entry hole, let out line until it goes slack while counting feet of line stripped off the reel and how long it takes. Then you can figure how many seconds it takes that lure to drop so many feet. From then on count down the desired time interval to reach a desired depth, currently no deeper than 14'. Of course that depth might have changed, something for you to figure out.
