Murky Water In The Fall?

Recommended Posts

What do you guys throw in murky water this time of year. Spinner baits etc... Just wanted to see what you guys had to say.

I'm usually throwing black/blue chatterbaits....the ones with the biggest thump I can find. In murky water they're honing in on baitfish with their lateral line, so anything that makes a lot of racket would be ideal

Depending on the water  temperature but , if its still nice outside an Indian summer kind of  thing , I have had real good luck over the decades using crankbaits with the Bomber Model A leading the pack .

Murky water falls between stained & muddy?

Clear / Slightly Stained / Stained / Murky / Muddy.

Clear Water Conditions.

Smaller sized, natural color baits fished fast.

Slightly Stained Water conditions.

Combination of clear water and stained water condition baits and presentations.

Stained Water Conditions.

Medium sized baits slightly brighter colored baits fished slower.

Murky Water Conditions.

A combination of stained and muddy condition baits and presentations.

Muddy Water Conditions.

Larger size, brightest color baits fished the slowest.

Match the bait colors and sizes to your water conditions. The speed of the presentation matters too. A rattle and a scent in the baits is a plus.

Id consider murky to be stained which is what usually happens after turnover.

Depends on the water temp. Right now it's been bladed jigs and squarebills with water temps in the mid to high 50's.
