Colors by soft plastic type

Recommended Posts

Since we seem to get a lot of the what's your favorite color, if you were shot down behind enemy lines, highlander "There can only be one!" type of questions I thought I would lay out what I use. Now keep in mind that I am fishing in Merryland in shallow rivers, reservoirs, and the tidal Potomac for both LM and SM for reference. Below are my top 5 colors per bait category overall.

 

Creature baits:

1. Green Pumkin

2. Solid Black

3. California 420

4. Watermelon Magic

5. Black/blue swirl (I think RI calls it Hematoma or something like that?)

 

Curl Tail Worms:

1. Green Pumkin

2. Solid Black

3. Tequila Sunrise

4. Black Shad

5. Motor Oil

 

Senkos:

1. Green Pumkin

2. Natural Shad

3. Watermelon

4. Whitish

5. Junebug

 

Fukes:

1. Albino

2. Pearl White

3. Custom poured smokish

4. Solid Black

5. Watermelon

 

Finesse worms:

1. Green Pumkin

2. Watermelon

3. Natural Shad

4. Solid Black

5. Mispours from FFO-Tackle that look like Zooms Castic Choice

 

DS worms

1. Smoke

2. Watermelon

3. Japanese GP

4. Natural Shad

5. Solid Black

 

These are what I use 90% of the time and you should be able to see a pattern.

I can break it down a bit more I think. Smaller, finesse baits are going to lean more towards the watermelon and green pumpkin spectrum. Bulkier baits are going to be more green pumpkin, black/blue, junebug/redbug, flukes and grubs are white, baitfish, chartreuse.

YOUR favorite colors will probably work just fine. Some "universal colors" are Green Pumpkin,

Watermelon/ Red Flake, Black/ Blue Fleck, PB&J, Purple, White and Chartreuse.
