To answer your question, no probably not much..

But us fisherman feed off of this thing call "confidence" and when you catch fish on one then you stick with it. Then red flake becomes better than black flake

Its more preference for the fisherman than the fish  ;D

I think flakes matter only on sunny days do they make fish bite better maybe if they are a distance away and catch a small flash who knows

Ok I'll go the other direction.

It makes a big difference. Color is everything in a fishes world but not in the respect that you might think. If I am fishing green water in green grass with a green lure what is going to contrast my lure against the green water and grass? How is my lure going to stand out so that the fish can see it. If it blends in then the only way for the fish to locate it is if it moves or gives off a vibration long enough for the fish to track it down. Think of fish as a color blind animal and all they can see is shades of grey. What is going to make the fish see your lure?....contrasting colors. Example..I like junebug worms. Junebug is made up of black, grape, green flake. Depending on which background i place the worm depends on which color is seen. Up against weeds if the green flake is a different shade as the weeds then you will see the flake. If not then the purple will be the most seen color or it will appear black. Redshad green flake is another great color. Red, black, green. I was fishing one time with this redshad green flake worm and the fish stopped hitting it and I turned the lure over and had the red face up and caught 3 more fish from the same spot. either the sun angle changed or the depth or how clear the water was but something caused that color to be seen more so than another. To many fishermen they say that color makes no difference but then again look in their tackle box and ask them why they buy so many different colors. ;)

During a casual conversation with a few guys at Kentucky Lake,

Big-O made the following statement (paraphrased):

"If you find the right location, select the best lure and your

presentation is what the fish want, you will probably catch

some fish. If you have the right color, you will catch more."
