I do it all the time when fishing for bowfin and sometimes I find myself in situations where the bass are in pretty "muddy" water... The bass may hold a lot closer to cover than they would when the water is more clear.

For lures, I tend to throw something with flash and/or vibration, such as a spinnerbait or a lipless. They "cut through" the murky waters a lot better than other, less visible lures.

Something that gives off a nice "flash" or a contrast like chartreuse color would be good for muddy water, they'll be able to see it better, and somethj thwt gives off a good vibra tion would be a good option as well. It has been aaid that fish, bass especially in particular, dont take kindly to "in your face", bright type colors. So while perhaps you may not get a hunger strike, per se, but you can get " anger strikes" because of their territorial nature, they wont like thst being up in their face and as such, they'll take a chomp at it.

Firetiger is always a good color choice, ranking up there with red, orange, or chartreuse.
