Ask a bass because humans don't know ;)

I've found that at different lakes, I need to change colors too. And depending on the lake, Roboworms work better than Senko's...go figure that one out..lol

Senko...pumpkin, watermelon

Robo...oxblood with red flake, MMII, Aron's Magic.

There are hundreds of colors of plastics and it is very confusing what to throw and when.

Usually, a watermelon is good in clear water; a pumpkinseed in stained water; and a dark color, like black, in muddy water.

With that said, there are so many variations of these three options along with other colors that sometimes I don't believe the color really makes that much of a difference.

Then again, the bass will have to tell you what they want, just like Catt said.  

You have to throw different colors and lengths and styles to find out what the bass want.

And to all of this, you can add colors and scents.

Just throw what you want and the bass will tell you what they want.

Now, wasn't that a simple answer?????????  :D   :D   :D

Everyone has what they perceive to be the ideal colors for each condition and this gives them confidence which is the most important ingredient.

For me it's basically 4 colors in the following order Cinnamon Pepper Neon/June Bug Laminated (Camouflage), Junebug/Blue Tail, Black Neon, & Black Blue Tail. With these colors I catch bass year round, under every water condition, day or night.

I've seen times when color made absolutely no difference at all, I've seen times when color make all the difference in the world, and I've seen times when I had to change colors after every other bass caught.

There is no right or wrong answer ;)

many will give long drawn out answers and possibly make a few notable points.....but i have fished the same colors for years and had great results, no matter the conditions..

all white..

pumpkin..

red shad..

junebug..

ps...while with my fishing buddy, we will purposely tie on diff. colored worms, and usually both get the same results....even if i change the color multiple times, its always about the same...

a quote that i don't quite remember where it came from though goes something like this....."lure color attracts humans first, and fish second!!"

It depends on the regional area you fish;

East of the Mississippi river: watermelon with red flake

West; all colors known.

I love Zoom u-tails! I know people have moved away from that, but that's what I catch fish on!

As far as colors go, I love to have almost any color with a chartreuse tail on it dipped in some garlic scent.

I'll bet if you ask Brent (from ***) why he offers so many colors of worms he will tell that someone asked for a certain color because they swear by it.  Everyone has their favorite/most productive colors, even on the same body of water on the same day 10 different anglers will probably tell you that the bass are really looking for at least 4 different colors.  What I did starting out was picked colors that I heard a lot of people mention frequently (i.e.: red shad, pumpkinseed, watermelonseed, junebug, black) and started fishing with those and I felt like I had the bases pretty well covered.  Experiment and see what color you end up having the most confidence in.

I have to say from personal experience it really boils down to what the bass wants.  I normally use the watermelon red color or white with silver flakes.  I have used and caught fish in clear and dark water with both of them.  Sometimes I catch more with one color over another.  So I would just say when it comes to worm color just buy whatever strikes your fancy.

First thing I ask myself is- water clarity, water temperature and what type of structure. Like most of you my plastics assortment looks like an aisle at your local tackle shop. But my go to plastics are:

Brush Hog= watermelon blake flake, watermelon red flake

Trick worm= watermelon blake flake, green pumpkin

Robo worm= Arrons magic, pro gold

But you have to find what works for you and where you are.
