Give Me Your Best Five Colors Of Choice

Recommended Posts

This coming Friday I'm purchasing, a bunch of worms and Jigs. I need to know, the top 5 colors to choose from. I kinda stay away from the bright colors myself. I kinda think it scares the fish away.. The Bass may think of, something trying to attack them. I know Green Pumpkin, may be to go to color for most people, cause u can fish it, in Clear and Stained water Clarity. Here's a Question. What do u all think of Green Pumpkin with red flake & Watermelon with red flake? I'm mainly a Plastic Worm fisherman myself. If i'm at the lake around 7am, i'll use top water for a little while. Then i'll use a natural darker color and 9am maybe. Here's my colors of choose, you guys tell what what your all think.

Green Pumpkin

Green Pumpkin/Red Flake

Pumpkin

Junebug

Watermelon

Watermelon/with Red Flake

Black

Pearl or white

Black & Blue

Clear or Stained water, i'm not using bright colors. Murky or muddy water, i'll use Bright colors. Most people would probably use, alot of Spinners in those Conditions. Clear and stained i'll stick to Natural Colors.

How did you come to the conclusion that bright colored baits scare fish ? :huh:

I didn't want to say anything, but I'm curious about this as well.

The plum apple so far I only seen in Senko and I wacky the 5". Funny part I had that bag for over two years and now just tried them and landed a 4.9, 4.8, 3.4, plus many dinks on two different lakes. Travis lake last Thursday and Hunting run last Sunday. It's one of my go to color now.

I think Watermelon And/0r with Red Flake work great in clear water. I use alot of White Pearl in Clear water. Maybe with a little Glitter with the white, brings up that great sparkle in the water. Alot of people like to use different colors. Cause the colors u use in your area, may not work in my pond/lake in my area. I think White is the best color in clear water

For jigs you can't go wrong with black and black/blue. Black is also a deadly color for plastics.
