Fluke,in muddy water

Recommended Posts

Flukes are a very visual bait so they're not going to be a very good option in muddy water.

There has to be a minimum of 18" to fish a soft jerk or even a senko type bait for me. Two and a half feet is better, and they work well in any clarity above that.

I would be reaching for a chatterbait, spinner or crank

As stated, I always do better with flukes when the water is not muddy. A little color & stain is fine, but there are better lure choices for truly muddy water.

I guess it depends on what end of the "muddy" spectrum you are on.

 

I've had success with bubblegum-colored flukes in fairly heavily stained water, particularly worked right at surface to generate splashes in an area where bass are forcing baitfish to surface.

 

Really muddy water?  I wouldn't be so confident.

^ right !!! 

 

Details are missing.. are you on a boat/watercraft or land ? Lake , river , pond ? 

 

If it's muddy because of flooding, bass usually venture shallow exploring their new playground. I reach for a yellow perch shad rap. 

 

The fluke will work though if you know where the bass are . but Just aimlessly throwing a fluke in a big muddy lake is probably not the best idea.

Yeah, this is what I was envisioning when he said muddy water. Better have something with a thump like a spinnerbait or chatterbait if in search mode in muddy water. 

 

But that fluke sure can be money when fishing around sparse grass & flooded bushes if you know they're there.  ?
