tips for summer time bass fishing.

Recommended Posts

I fish at a reservoir and since its summertime the water here is very green/muddy. What kind of color baits would you guys use?

Darker colors for soft plastics or jigs. Such as blues, blacks, purples, or a combination of the three. My favorite is a "junebug." 

For other hard baits, I think people use flashy colors like "fire tiger" or chartreuse. 

Tight lines.

As stated above darker colors will contrast better in stained water.You can also use baits that cause some vibration, spinnerbait with a Colorado

Blade or bladed jigs.

I HATE MURKY WATER FISHING. But often I have deal with it, especially in summer. Fish close to cover and not too deep. Would not recommend a spinnerbait, I would recommend a 12 inch dark colored curly tailed worm on a bladed jig head. If the water isn't too warm, a spinnerbait is fine however, I like chatterbaits better.

I havent fished clear water in years . Murky , green is the norm . I use all kinds of colors .  Dark purple worms work good but so does watermelon chartreuse . Shad pattern cranks work well but so does bluegill and crawfish .  I do like the contrasting colors  mentioned . One that works real well for me is to take the watermelon chartreuse plastic worm and  use a red Spike-It marker to put a stripe on it. The stripe turns out a reddish brown and its been pretty darn effective . I had some  old Riverside worms were a similar color that just killed the fish and the Spike-It marker duplicates it pretty good .
