I like darker shirts and coats because its still chilly here and the darker colors absorb more sunlight and keep me warmer.

A margarita purple color for your finesse worms would be good. White/Chartreuse spinner bait is a good compromise between clear and muddy water, sexy shad cranks, orange lipless cranks, watermelon soft stick baits or green pumpkin, Okeechobee craw jig.

It depends on the body of water I am fishing but anything that impersonates a baitfish or a crawfish is a good bet. Cant go wrong with a brown/orange jig with a craw colored rage craw on the back.

Around here, I like craw colors in the spring. Outside of that, I usually like brighter colors  because the melting snow usually washes in dirt and makes the water dirtier/muddier than normal, so chartruese, whites, oranges, etc. are usually a good call. That could be different in your part of the country.

I like a red, or craw colored lipless bait. I also have had pretty good luck with bubblegum super flukes this time of year.

Yup. First fish I caught on fake bait were last year. Didn't know that I was tying on a really good choice for the spring, just one of the few lures I had, and I threw a red lipless. I got crushed.

I am not a color guy, I buy them all, but throw only a few....In the spring, I must confess, something with orange or red in a crankbait, or spinnerbait/jig seems to work really well. I only use spinnerbaits that have orange and green in them in the spring since they resemble to bases of forrage that are on the minds of bass in the spring.

 

1-Females Crave the Iodine from Crawfish, so you will notice alot of guys use red and orange, craw pattern traps and cranks etc... I do know that I do well using these colors all year, but spinnerbaits and jigs for sure, it also helps if you can get info on the color of craws at a certain time, they have 4 molting stages, hitting it at right time is almost impossible since it is different all over the lake, but take the time to flip over some rocks at the ramp...and look at the colors of baitfish, sunfish, and baby bass...

 

2- Bass are opportunistic feeders, so if a lake has shad, a chrome lure will work well, if shiners, or without, gold is always good, and then some not so flashy colors, and make sure to have pumpkinseed, sunfish, and bluegill/Tilapia colors if they are in your lakes. Greens for bass are never bad, big bass east little bass, if you have yellow perch...You get my drift...

 

or, if you are eccentric like a few people I know, they believe that the brightest loudest lures and baits work best because "they can see them from longer distances, so they will get more strikes, why ask me such a dumb question?) and they will fish that uv glow worm or bubble gum senko all day and do just fine...So if you like it, if you believe it and have confidence that maybe fish never see enough yellow and purple mixed together, and I want to give them a new look, not the same "rules" I just laid out, then go for it...

 

If you believe it, then it is true.....

Red craws in cranks, dark colors in jigs, pearl in jerkbaits, and white or chartreuse and white with spinnerbaits.
