Greenish, Brown, and Muddy water spinner blade setup ideas.

Recommended Posts

just got my spinner blade assortment packs for Jann's Netcraft store. Here is  a picture of all the brass, white, and dark color blades that came with it. I will be fishing in greenish, brown, and muddy water. I need some blade combo ideas. The only real skirts I got for this type of water that is solid color is red, black, and white.


Thanks, 

John

You can fish any color effectively in any kind of water, but reds are particularly good for visibility in muddy water, and golds and coppers in brownish water.

I been reading all about different water color for different blade finishes. Its a science that's for sure.

Hammered blades are good for breaking up the reflection and Colorado and Indiana blades give off a lot of vibration at slow speeds. If your spinnerbaits are double bladed, go with the small Colorado on the clevis and the big Colorado on the swivel, both in dark color and add a red or black skirt. I'd add a trailer like a Kalin's grub to give more drag to a bait with a Willow blade and still allow a slower retrieve.  Don't worry too much about color combos in murky water. The fish will be relying as much on detecting vibration and water displacement as they will be on their sight and remember that natural prey doesn't change color.

Run that white turtle with the small red one in front and a chart/white skirt on a 1/2 head in muddy water. If It's really muddy, some chart lure tape will make it pop, that being said, I run gold or copper 99% of the time.

Its fun mixing  and matching blades . Here are just  three styles that I like to use in cold muddy spring water .

In greenish or brown water, I tend to use a silver blade in front of a gold blade. In muddy water, I've had more success on a red front blade with a copper blade on the back.
