Yes, 1/4oz spinnerbaits usually do the trick for me anywhere on the DPR.

DPR is a pike factory. Get out and toss some spinnerbait, spinners, or jerk baits.

Black or firetiger depending on water clarity; I’ve had better results with silver blades than gold, but the difference is so small I’d say throw what you’re confident with in that regard. I’ve had good results with weedless spoons, like Johnson silver minnows, with chartreuse trailers.
