I throw a pink wacky worm (magnum trick) in clear to lightly stained water on cloudy days and do pretty well.

Actually, it will work in almost any shade of water.

Great color and you will enjoy using it.

Give the trick worm a try followed by the fluke.

Weightless trick worm on a spinning rig.

Weightless fluke on a baitcaster.

Hook up a 2/0 or 3/0 hook and Texas rig it so that the point is just under the skin so you can throw it into grass, pads, cover, etc.

Keep an eye on the trick worm and you will see the bass inhale it.

Using our rod tip, move the trick worm like a snake.

Regarding the fluke, you will have to determine what pattern they want, as you do with a stickbait or a poper, Sammy or Spook.

8 pound flouro for both unless you want to go with mono as it floats better than flouro or if you are throwing them into heavy cover then upgrade the test strength.

Have fun. :)

I also use the pink in any water, clear, stained, etc. I really love the pink Sluggo. When fishing is tough, it is one of my panic baits.

A friend of mine fishes a hot pink spinnerbait in clear water and does pretty well with it, he threw it as a joke the first time, nobody laughs at him anymore.

That's something I gotta try. Catt had mentioned using one in another thread. I think he mentioned that his daughter picked it out one day and he used it and won a tourney with it...The man is a fishing machine anyway. :) Oh sorry, I forgot the Catt wink: ;)

You might try this, it's a way of cutting to the quick, and the results can be very enlightening:

The next time you're on a 'fluke bite', change the color of the fluke after every fish you bring to the boat.

You're going to find that no pattern and no color is going to stifle the action until the action peters out naturally.

Experimenting in that manner with all lures and colors, can raise angling interest to higher ground.

On the flipside, the next time bass turn their noses up at the Fluke, see it you can initiate a fluke bite

by changing the color (lots of luck).

That said, my confidence colors for fluke fishing are Bubblegum, White Ice & Albino,

but I realize that this is merely a personal predisposition (we all got'em)..

More to the point, the subsurface strikes generated by a fluke are generally visible to the angler,

and for this reason I prefer "Bubblegum", which is highly visible. I've boated more bass on Bubblegum flukes

than all other colors combined, but that's simply because Bubblegum flukes have spent the most time on the end of my line,

Would you use a weightless white trick worm in the same conditions you would a bubble gum color? If not, then when and how.

I'm not sure that your question was directed at me, but I'll give it a shot anyway.

An unweighted trick worm is a great lure regardless of its color.

Many anglers insist on dark-colored worms, but why should 'lure type' determine the color?

In my opinion, the closer to the surface a lure is worked, the more I"d lean toward white (e.g. chartreuse).

Oppositely, the closer to the bottom a lure is worked, the more I'd lean toward black (e.g. junebug).

Pink is a light color and well suited to surface and subsurface work. If the ability to visually monitor your lure can effect success, you'd be hard put to beat Bubblegum :)

bubblegum fluke is deadly... Hot Pink Xrap is also a great bait. :)

That sounds cool. How much of it is pink, skirt and blades?

@Rolo: Thanks for the response...heard they were deadly weightless, but I was unsure where a white worm would be effective.
