When fishing worms, is the color Red, actually a a productive color?  

 

How would you rank it against other colors Like Green Pumpkin, Junebug, Watermelon,etc?

The human eye can see thousands of shades of red, blue and green, we don't know how many shades of those colors a bass can see. 

Every lake that I have fished will have a specific color the bass prefer over other colors and that can change hourly. I prefer using darker shades of red like cardinal verses lighter scarlet. I also prefer red highlites in some lures.

I haven't had "great" success with worms in the red spectrum as far

as fully colored. Where I *have* had success is with red flakes

in the worms - i.e., watermelon red flake.

 

I use that color in a variety of soft plastics. Good stuff, IMO.

Plum-apple and redbug are 2 of my very favorite worm colors. If I had to pick, ,I'd rather have redbug over watermelon as long as I got green pumpkin for my other color. Not sure I own any junebug worms.

A Red Shad Berkley power worm has always been productive for me.

I love fishing red colored worms. Redbug, plum apple, red shad. Especially mid to late summer.

Not really red (redish orange), but the Zoom Trick Worm in Merthiolate has produced for me for years. Deadly in the Spring, then I might as well put it up until the dog days of Summer. Then it gets hammered again.

I fish 3 reddish colors a lot in the summer. Plum, red bug and cranberry. Sometimes one outperforms the other but they all 3 are a staple of my summertime

Does Plum Apple even count as red? At least in flukes, it's more purplish, looks like a Junebug Candy or something.

Also have never caught anything on these, despite catching a bunch on Green Pumpkin Magic, White, and White / Chart Tail.

My PB was caught on a Red Chrome Rat-L-Trap 😉

 

Rage Tail's Delta Red is deadly!

To me it does, it's a dark red whereas Junebug is decidedly purple.

The Zoom Red Bug color is the only red I have had any luck with. I know a guy that swears by the Cherry Seed color and I can't get a fish to even look at it.

I’ve never had very good luck with red plastics, but red or orange lipless baits seem to work great in murky or muddy water.

First bass I ever caught was on a red plastic  worm with a couple of bright plastic orange / red beads and a small silver propeller on the front in the mid 1960's ... Today I consider plum , plum apple , red bug , etc. colors to all  be "red" worms .
