Orange colored spooks

Recommended Posts

Years ago I purchased a orange colored off brand spook on clearance. Of course one early morning it was slow so I tried it. After fan casting and landing 5 decent bass I'm hooked on the orange color. Now I'm trying to find the orange color. I ordered some orange model spray paint along with some spooks so I can paint them. I now found a Zara spook in the orange color number 13 in Thailand on eBay. For the $4.00 in shipping I ordered it. We can get pretty desperate when we look for a certain bait color. We just gotta have it. I even bought a Topnocker to paint orange too.

Have you ever gone bonkers to find a certain color bait?

Ever notice the orange colored belly on your Crankbaits catch more fish than the none orange colored belly?

i figure since I'm recouping from my knee injections I'd like to get my baits in order.

Sometimes when my dad and I troll for striped bass they will hit the red fins with a chartreuse belly but they won't touch the others but sometimes it's the other way around.

this happened to me.  Years ago I had a yellow and black heddon dying flutter (prop bait)  It wasn't just a good lure, it was a great lure.  The best in my tackle box.  It got bit off by a big chain pickerel and so I immediately replaced it.  Nope. not nearly the same catch rate.  Over the years I have tweaked, bent, loosened, tightened, hung on car antenna, and bought about 6 different of the same bait.  Nothing even comes close to the bass catching magic of that first one.   No explaining it other than to say that it had a secret magic ju ju that comes along once in lifetime.

I had my time

my favorite is when you catch some good fish on a bait you bought, you bought it cuz it looked good and itll get fish.  so you use it and get good fish. so you buy more colors and dont catch fish on it

This has been discussed among many anglers with crankbaits from what I read. Seems some just have a slightly different action noise etc. I have even seen here discussions where some have the addiction with a red colored crankbait that was discontinued. 

Many other stories are out there on this subject so I would say it is a real phenomenon.  

Personally I use to throw a black and yellow H&H as a kid. It was the only color the store sold way out in the sticks where I grew up. I couldn't tell you how many bass I caught over the years as a kid with them. Now days every now and then I try those colors and well sometimes it works but nothing like I recall as a kid.

I caught 5 good fish on 5 casts with a regular Spook one morning, then nothing for years. I started fishing a lot of ponds lately and it's one of my top 4 baits again. It beez like that sometimes.
