Silver Or Gold

Recommended Posts

I'm throwing blade baits here in the cold in PA. I am throwing gold when cloudy and silver when sunny. Do you guys have any preference on this? I seem to be doing ok with this rule. Any info. Would be great.

Thanks,

Tom

That's the basic rule I follow for everything ... jerkbaits, lipless crankbaits, spoons etc.

Clear skies - blue back

 

Cloudy skies - black back

 

Keep up the good work!

I use both no matter what the conditions are. I let the fish indicate a preference.

 

This one preferred gold, the one before and after preferred silver.

When using blade baits, it's more of the presentation than it is color. If they are going to hit a blade, it really isn't going to matter what the color is. This is especially true in cold water. I carry both gold & silver. Have never seen one perform better over the other. Great baits in cold water! Especially on smallies. :)

I too do not put much emphisis on blade color, it's always the technique that I am more in tune with, the color of the skirt and size and shape of the blade or blades is more important than the blade color.

I was just too lazy to adjust the camera angle for the distance.

It only weighed 8# and 6 oz.

Silver Buddy type

 

The bass pictured was caught with a model sort of like the Cicada (don't remember the brand). It has a slower fall rate and more vibration than the Silver Buddy since it is made with a willow leaf spinnerbait blade.

I was fishing at a shallow lake so I wanted a slower fall rate.

Thanks guys the silver buddy type but I'm using BPS sonar blades better acton. I catch a bunch on fish on these in the winter when they won't hit anything else. There are all sorts of colors but I only go with sliver or gold.

Love gold plated BfishN tackle blades. I only use them for walleye though but will get the occasional smallmouth on them on shallow sand and rock.
