Explain This Skirt, Pls.

Recommended Posts

Under what conditions would a skirt like this be productive?

I would call that Bluegill color. Bluegill colors work real well in the green algae  stained waters I fish .

good jig color especially in a swimjig or bladed jig.  And yes, that is a variation of a bluegill pattern.  Has a bit of orange, chartruese, and looks like black.  You figure a male bluegill has an orange coloring on it's throat during the summer when spawning, the chartruese color works for the lighter greens on it's sides, and the black for the back.

I see this more like a Fire tiger color. Stained or muddy waters for me.

Maybe this could be considered a "high-vis" bluegill pattern.

That color to me is called Missouri Craw (black, chartreuse, and amber). Muddy water is where I would throw it.

I'd fish it on a double willow spinnerbait for smallmouth.

Killer color combo, around here it's dy-no-mite from say mid may to to late June.. July it still is effective late evening to, and after dark.

During those time periods it's become slightly to moderately algae colored water... Plenty of Gill activity...

I would probably use it for stained/muddy as well but would not hesitate what so ever to use it in clear water as well. Good all-purpose color.

To me it is more of a perch than bluegill and I'd use it on a spinnerbait or swim jig and throw in dirty water or when there is some chop on clear water.

Looks a bit like a color I use on my bladed jigs a lot, killer in stained to dirty water.
