Colors I have not used or had luck with

Recommended Posts

I was looking through my tackle yesterday and realized that there is two color patterns that I haven't used or really know when to use. Pink with white; white and clown. Any ideas of when to use such color patterns? I mostly fish from the banks and from a kayak on a Lake that used to be a quarry and is really clear. I do have a few other rivers and or creeks that are heavily stained as well where I thought they might work. I'm hopping that they can be used for smallmouths this year, but I honestly don't know.

Bubblegum (bass fishermen don't use pink) works best for me in clear water.

Clown is one of my favorite jerkbait colors in stained water.

Mine too. I have caught a lot of fish on clown rogues over the years.

I always wondered how it looks to a bass. Red is supposed to be one of the first colors to disappear underwater.

I will have to try that out. I didn't figure clown would work in stained water.

I like a bubblegum weightless fluke in the spring.  Usually in clear water, but it will work in stained and murky water also.

I've got a package of bubblegum trick worms and i think i have a set of pink flukes as well. The lake that I fish in is mostly clear. Would a Pink and white jerkbait or crankbait work there too?

I use pink for fishing for bowfin in the winter and also skipping docks when rigged weightless. Another color ive never caught a fish on is watermelon red. I have lord only knows how many worms and craws in that pattern and never once caught a fish on it, maybe it says something about me🤣

I was going to try some pink power worms this year, as they're not commonly used but sometimes people will have great luck with them.

You can give it a try. I’ve never fished with a bubblegum crankbait only with flukes.

Those are literally the only 2 colors I buy for soft plastics; except for minnow imitating baits, where I’ll buy Shad and smoke colors.

Black and blue. Zero confidence in these 2 colours.

 

My buddy loves magenta zoom swimming flukes weightless and Texas rigged. Caught a football sized Smallmouth right beside me.
