Brown and Purple Jigs

Recommended Posts

I fish a lot of jigs but never brown and purple.  Fish primarily in Iowa and Minnesota.  My primary jig colors are black and blue, pumpkin or green pumpkin (sometimes with some chartreuse strands), and white.  

In reading the latest issue of Bassmaster I noted the "pros" used brown and purple jigs. Is there something about that color that is more useful in the southern lakes?  Or, is it essentially a dark color with a little more color in it than an all black jig.  And, under what condition would a brown purple jig be used when a black blue jig would not?

Thanks!

Bob

Browns in jigs are a mainstream color and purple as you know is mix color of red, highly noticeable to fish, and blue that is the first color in the spectrum that disappears as water depth increases. So at shallower depths, it is both red and blue to the fish which both are proven and popular colors. In deeper water, it still maintains a color that is more noticeable, red. Hope that is understandable. It just happens to be one of my favorite colors as well. And it has proven itself for years and in all types of water conditions. Good Fishing

PB and J is one of my favorite colors for clear water, i use black and blue almost always for dirty water.

I don't use a lot of brown and purple jigs, but I do use a Laminate Senko that is sort of a brown and purple color and it works great. I am sure that color in a jig would be awesome too.

PB & J is a variation of Camouflage; both are Cinnamon Pepper Neon/June Bug Laminated but the difference is Camouflage has more green & red glitter.

Thanks for the replies.

I will have to add brown, purple, junebug colors to my jig collection.  Just need to get some silicone tabs in those colors.

I had always heard that red was the first color to disappear. (actually become colorless)  Blue was still seen in dingy water and at deeper depths.  That is the basis behind red fishing line.  It "disappears" in the water.

PB&J jigs are my go to in any water conditions. I thought i was the only one that liked this color so much. Everybody around my area sees it tied on and just ask me what were you thinking with that color selection? I just reply not real sure just thought i would give it a try. ;)

They want to knock it, I won't recommend they try it. >:)
