Earthworm Color

Recommended Posts

Someone on another site was asking about a natural Earthworm color. I took it as a good challenge and tried playing with some color combos.

Here is pumpkin and white and the top lam is bears chameleon (violet to brown color changing) The top is a bright translucent violet when held to the light.

Here is pumpkin and whit and the top lam is pumpkin and a little black. Too dark I think.

And here is the best. Pumpkin and white and top lam is pumpkin and white with a little extra pumpkin and a little violet.

I personally would fish the one you think is too dark. A little more purple in that via flake or something it would be money

I would agree with this. They all look good, though.

They all look great, but I have to agree that the darker one would be my first pick. Healthy looking worm in your first pic.

I have the same mold and am going to make some earthworms now to use on a shakeyhead tomorrow.

Thanks for the inspiration.

I too like the darker one!! I get worms in a color called "oxblood" because they have the same "earthworm" type color. While I like the darker one I think any of them will be great and just like baitfish, earthworms vary in color from place to place depending on the nutriends in the soil, the ones I find in my yard are a little darker so the laminate wouldn't work as it would need to be the same color to match them here but great job on matching the one you have in your hand.

Thanks all. It's not neccesarily a color I might throw, but thought it would be fun to try and match it

 

Here is the top color in the first pic when held up to the light. The brown turns to a transparent violet. Pretty cool.

Toss em in the water with some dead naturals and compare...Think the darker one will be a better match judging by the color of the worms that come to commit suicide in my inground swimming pool.

Personally, I like the one with a little bit of flake. Would work great in the lakes I fish
