Jig Color

Recommended Posts

I am going to be picking up some new jigs, what would you all suggest as the best color for al/most situations and the most color that would resemble a bluegill?

jigs im going to purchase- http://www.***.com/All_Terrain_Tackle_Rattling_AT_Jig/descpage-ATTATJ.html

Two colors I wouldn't be without are black&blue and green pumpkin.  You can add color or contrast with the trailer.  Swim jigs are a different story.

Find something similar to the siebert sweet craw. Since i started throwing it, it's been my best producer. Ill still throw other jigs, but it's still the one I throw when I NEED a fish.

Crawfish change colors at certain times of the year,it is called molting.Like papajoe posted,and i agree with him ,them two colors would be my top two also.But there are times when they will be a blue-ish,red-ish,green orange and all lakes can have a certain craw .All lakes are not the same as color of crawfish goes.Just catch a few bass and put them in your live well and after awhile the bass will spit up some of the craws that they ate,and take a look at the colors and the claw colors.,and then match the hatch. But now to answer your question- black/blue or just black,greenpumpkin,brown/blue, or just brown,PBJ,and green with a bit of orange in it!  The bass in Table Rock love Brown/blue. And as  Papa said play with trailer colors  like a brown jig and a blue chunk  and GOT ONE!

Some variation of green pumpkin imitates so many different prey items, including bluegills, it's pretty hard to go wrong with it.

You can make it super complicated, or very simple.  I like simple.  With 4 basic color patterns, you can cover almost any imitation or water color/lighting: black/blue, green, brown, and white.  They should be your base.  Now, you can add orange, chartreuse, purple, etc into the mix, but really those 4 colors are your base.  You can accent them with different colors or actioned trailers, but you can cover virtually all conditions with those 4 basic colors.

The colors I use most are blue/black, green, black, and orange/brown.  I start off matching the trailer to the skirt, and then go from there.

I would get some black/blue for night fishing or dirty water and some green pumpkin or watermelon for clear water.

I fish those AT jigs almost exclusively and only use 2 colors: junebug and green pumpkin (one for clear water, one for dirtier water).  I catch hundreds of bass on them every year.  Like most guys are saying, it's best to keep it simple.  I'm a firm believer that the fish just simply don't care about minor subtleties in color.  I'm not even sure I'm sold on the dark colors in muddy water deal (even though I do it most of the time).  I don't know how many I've caught on all green pumpkin in water with an inch of visibility.

Black/blue, craw, green pumpkin, and PB&J are the four colors I own. 

Swim jigs are white/black, black/blue, bluegill, and orange/purple.

Any color is fine as long as it´s BLACK.

A LOT of states publish the crawfish species online like at the DNR site or colleges or something....  check them out and you'll be surprised how many different colors those things are throughout the year!  that said, black anything does catch them year round.

i like a greenish/blue and a pb&j type color to imitate craws and bluegill year round.  can't go wrong there.

On the lakes around here, Jordan and Shearon Harris, green, brown, black and blue are the colors that dominate the tackle boxes and bags of the heavy hitters.

I like : Black & Blue , Brown & Orange and Candy Craw . I use the Candy Craw the most as when the sun is out it has blue gill sparkles in the skirt and when it's cloudy it remains just a dull Green Pumkin color which looks like a craw dad - very versitle color !
