Black And Blue Color Lures

Recommended Posts

I have not tried b/blue colors at all never seem to find the right conditions. My thoughts for right conditions is stained dark water but most of the waters I fish are fairly clear, buggs,gaston,anna. with the james and potomac thrown in. should i try them on these waters or stick with the never fail g/pumpkin and watermelon/ wm red flake and junebug . Give me your thoughts. I have a few other colors that I mix in also.

A Black & Blue flake Senco is my "if all else fails" go to bait. As far as water clarity goes, normally if I stick a paddle in the water I can only see it for 2-3'.

I've had success with a Black and Blue (B&B) Texas rigged YUM Craw Bug. I've also got some other B&B flappin' style craws I use as jig trailers. I have had the most success using those in stained, murky water. I fished a tournament this winter where I caught every last fish flippin' a B&B Mighty Bug.

For what it's worth, the Black & Red flake YUM Money Craw is a sure fire winner too!

Black and Blue is my bread and butter color to start with.

Black and Blue is a primary color combination down here in Florida. Can't speak to up there but it is natural and like a lot of the other natural colors like junebug, the watermelons, pumpkins etc should work about anywhere. All you can do is give it a shot.

I used to catch a pile of fish on a black worm with a blue stripe along the underside. I used to throw it during cloudy and overcast weather and tear the fish up.

I've caught fish on black and blue jigs in all temps, and all colors of water.

Black and blue Lake Fork Tube Craw was my go to bait a few years ago. Caught fish on it in everything from very clear sand pits to very muddy creeks.

I find I do good with those colors when there is an overcast, and the sun is gone.

Basically in my opinion the black/blue is to mimic a crawfish in colder water,they are a blue color. In deeper water all you need is a little sun light and you have a shadow mimicing image of a crawfish.

I was using a straight Black worm the other day, caught a few but nothing like my partner was on Junebug. Switched over to Black with a Blue tail and flat tore them up. I will always have some with me in the boat.

This is something I actually question alot of when choosing my jig colors. In clear water conditions I am all for a green pumpkin or pumpkin jig and a trailer with less action. When dealing with more stained water I often ask myself If i should throw the black and blue jig that most suggest or try for something with brighter colors. This past week I fished quite a bunch and put these two jigs to the test. The water clarity was anywhere from 6 inches to a foot. On one rod i threw a black and blue arky style jig 1/2 oz with a black and blue rage craw trailer. On the other rod i threw a 1/2 oz arky stlye jig with a skirt color that had a mix of orange,a light gold, some pumpkin and some light brown in there, as well as alot of orange and gold flecks ( ive heard some refer to a similar color as road kill). None of the colors besides the orange were very bright in the skirt, as well as the gold. As a trailer i threw a bama craw colored rage craw trailer. I fished the bama craw jig about 60 % of the time and the black and blue 40% of the time. I ended up catching 12 bass that day with the best five weighing 17 lbs. The sky was partially cloudy with intermittent sunlight and water temp was 49 degrees. Every single fish i caught was on the bama craw colored jig versus the black and blue jig, but i continued to fish it just to make sure i wasnt ruling it out due to lack of use.. Based off of this it would seem that in those conditions the bama craw jig was the clear favorite. I like throwing black and blue jigs in dark water, not necessarily stained but just naturally dark ( Chickahominy lake) versus when the water actually has a fair amount of staining and is muddied up. This is just my .02 cents :)
