When using jigs, a plain unpainted head and a 3"-5" Kalin's or Fat Albert grub is what I use most. I find no difference fishing painted or unpainted jigs, the flashie paint just looks a lot better to the fishermem.

When i use darker soft plastics i use painted lead no real reason just do. When i use lighter soft plastics i use my old dull lead not the new ones. I think the new lead is to shiny. No reason just personal choice. It just something i do.

I am 100% sure, rocks don't care. When I buy lead I always buy it painted because its prettier and matches my purse....I can't recall EVER fishing with a guide who had painted lead, they either make their own and don't paint them or buy in bulk which must not come painted either. I usually catch more fish (but not bigger) when I'm with a guide which would lead one to believe unpainted is better. However, my theory is that fish are easy to catch, finding them is the hard part...So, that's where the guide comes in, especially on a new lake. I don't think the paint makes any difference.
