Night fishing worm colors advice needed.

Recommended Posts

The "traditional" answer is black, but I don't think it makes any difference. Size is what counts.

Well...besides location and presentation... :o

There's a lot more that goes into an answer to this question than just color -- the size of the body of water can have an impact as well as the type of bottom, structure and cover you are fishing.  The traditional answer of "black" is partially based on the concept that fish will be looking up and see the outline of the lure against the ambient light in the sky.  But not all fish (bass) are always looking up and there may be differing degrees of ambient light.  For this reason, it has been my experience that lure action has more to do with attracting fish (bass) at night than color.  Buzz baits work excellently on my home lake after the sun sinks below the tree line, but chatter baits and spinner baits with colorado blades also work well.  My goto lure is a ZOOM Vibratail worm and I have even been able to fish these like swim baits after dark with good results in colors ranging from junebug to watermelon -- it's all in the tail.  Brush hogs and lizards also work well after dark when dragged along a soft bottom by giving a lot of action in the water and kicking up the silt.  Crank baits also work well, but wider wobble (especially in the warmer months) seem to be the ticket.  The only thing I haven't done much good on at night has been stick baits (like Senkos) and jigs, but I certainly wouldn't rule them out.

The eyes of a bass go through a night adaptation cycle beginning at twilight and are usually adapted for black, white, and all shades of gray within an hour after darkness. Bass can see color but not at night, color it's self is meaningless at night. Bass cannot see details at night, so don't waste time with meticulously painted or patterned lures.

IMPO, the difference between one color and the next "especially at night" is somewhere between zero and none.

Peace,

i'd say karu's pretty good there but i like brass with that glass bead i belive it tends to make a bit more noise as it resonates

Black Purple or any other high contrast color. Ribbed worms offer more vibration than smooth bodied worms. If Texas rigging, use a glass bead in between your worm and sinker for added attraction.
