Favorite Color Bait

Recommended Posts

What's your favorite color on whatever bait you want to share?

 

I love Green pumpkin on soft plastics other than the fluke.  Prefer smokin shad for it.

 

Spinnnerbait used to be any shad color but due to where I fished this year, firetiger or close was on point.

Due to water color on my lake, I most always use a chartreuse, or chartreuse and white spinnerbait. My jigs and plastics are normally blue and black combinations.

On most of the crankbaits I fish, I like chartreuse as well as natural looking shad colors. It seems like it's been chartreuse in spring and natural colors in fall for me the last couple of years. In texas rigged soft plastics I tend to go with something darker like green pumpkin. I'm still trying to figure out what I like in jigs and jig trailers, but dark colors like black and blue are probably my favorites.

Spinnerbaits, I usually go with brighter colors.

I've used jigs a hand full of times (need to work on that) but black and blue have been my best luck also.

Purple worms, white spinnerbaits, black chatterbaits, black topwater, and perch/fire tiger cranks. Not sure why, but this is what I gravitate towards.

I fish a ton of different lakes/rivers. 

 

Chartruese is always a solid choice. Some of the clearer waters with natural colors I do well on perch/bluegill.

I love experimenting with colors, but there are two that just plain work, no matter what: Green pumpkin, and Black (with or without flakes). Those two are my very best, and I'll throw whichever the sky and water dictate that day.

 

I don't shy from many colors, though - I'm willing to try anything on any given day. At least, until I get tired of it.

More and more of my soft plastics are being bought in Junebug. Black with blue flake is second.

Hard baits are all over the place, and since they seem to be bought on pure impulse I buy whatever looks pretty.

For most soft plastics it's green pumpkin. Cranks-either shad or crawfish, topwaters-anything with a white or bone belly, jigs-depends on what I'm trying to imitate (I swim a lot of white and smoke colored jigs).

For plastics, it would be green pumpkin.  For cranks. it would be shad.

90% of my soft plastics are in these 4 basic colors:

 

Black ( with blue or red flake)

Green Pumpkin (with or without various color flakes)

Watermelon (mostly with red flake or watermelon candy)

Junebug.

 

And I have a few select baits in white and bubblegum.

Plus, I always have some spike it markers in red, orange, and chart. for adding splashes when I think it's needed.

 

For hardbaits I have a lot of colors in my "collection" but I really only use the basics of:

 

Bluegill/perch colored baits, a craw color, something with chart., and something white  (like  sexy shad etc..)

Watermelon Red and green pumpkin are my goto colors for soft plastics/jigs/chatterbaits. The bait I have caught a lot of fish on the last year is the Rage Space Monkey in the Double Header color, a laminate of my two favorite soft plastic colors. For crankbaits firetiger catches me the most fish.

Totally agree with this.  I think it's best to simplify the colors.  It's amazing was a simple color change can do.
