rattler color

Recommended Posts

i got a 5 pack of rattling crankbaits (lipless) and i was wondering of the 5 i got which should be the most efective:

Firetiger (has some shine to it)

Chrome and black back

Bronze and black back

Copper and black back

Chrome and blue

i dont know. it was a steal, i bought them for 2.50 total!

Those are all decent colors at a great price but you probably put some quality hooks on them first.

You should probably try all of them until the fish tell you which they like best for the particular water you're fishing.

They're all good regardless of the water color; traps are the ultimate reaction bait, fish one while in a jon boat and feel the vibration.

I would change out the split rings also.  

Lures with that kind of price tag will catch fish, but God help you if you hook into something with some weight.

Becareful with something so cheap... especially if they are not a name brand such as rapala.  I once bought a five pack with the same colots as you mentioned that also cost 2.50.  I dont remember the name on the package i think it was matzuo or something. But anyway, the first time i tried them, i realized that they were all floating rattle traps that did not swim straight, so becareful, this is not good.  A good rattle trap with sink and swim straight.  Anyway to answer your question,  all of those colors will work in stained water, but will best work on cloudy days, bring them through the water very fast, these lures are mainly used to catch bass that bite as a result of a reaction bite.   I was in a tournament this summer, which was at a stained body of water,  my lure of choice for the day was a red craw colored lipless crankbait made by rapala.  In the 6 hour tournament i caught a total of 17 bass.  My five biggest had a total weight of 19.4 lbs.  My biggest was a 5.7 lb bass. It was a great day! it was the second tournament i had won with that same lure.  Good luck fishing

they are matzuo, a small name brand. ill invest in a sinking rattler

anyway i trashed the split rings where you tie on the knot. they screw up its action
