Best Swimbait color/pattern

Recommended Posts

What works best for you? I personally like a white shad with green stripes my friend gave me a year back. I got one the first cast then lost the lure the next. ;D ;D ;D The pattern can be on a soft or hard bait.

I'm going to have to say bluegill, but thats just because where I fish has tons of them and that color always seems to work.

Bluegill if you are in Mexico

Tilapia if you are in Mexico

Baby bass if you are in Mexico

Rainbow trout if you are in Mexico where 90 % of the bass have never seen a trout

Shad if you are in Mexico where there are no shad

Hitch if you are in Mexico where there are no hitch

Ayu if you are in Mexico and .... guess what ? there ain 't no ayu in Mexico

And the list can go on patterns that in theory imitate something and that maybe something the bass have never seen anf if fished in the right location with the right presentation will work.

Firetiger or Halloween

We aren't talking about tossing big hammers for rockfish  ;D

Just go with white.  It will work anywhere.

I would say anything with a green back and a white belly. This covers most baitfish out there. Raul said it best though because many times the color does not matter. I have caught a lot of bass on trout colored patterns in lakes that have no trout and have never seen trout. And they just happen to have a green back with a white belly :)

Infidel-

There are way better colors in Hammers than just white. Of course I will not say what colors I get bit best on  ;D

Oh yeah I know. To be honest I stopped tossing big hammers after they started making them in China. Mostly throw MC's now and I don't think that I have a single all white one. I was suggesting all white because I don't care what part of the world you are in, what time of day it is, from slammers to hudds to triple-trout to sassy shads, all white will work.  I didn't read the post that well and just took it as someone new to swimbaits wondering what color to start with.  my mistake.

Corey makes a great bait. I like the MC stuff a lot but I'm also partial to Hammer because they are very good to me. I use both brands a lot because they are unique in their own ways. My friends and I  have caught fish on the old Mexico made baits and the new China made baits. The China baits do not split like the old Mexico baits did. Its tough to produce that number of baits in CA with all the laws and taxes to be profitable unfortunately. You can almost always find Hammers and MC baits are not always in stock  :)

True that.  I aleast Longfin carries them now.  I used to have to stock up down in San Diego.

Sorry for the detour on this thread.
