Mother nature makes most bait fish dark on the top and light on the bottom. Supposedly this makes them harder to see from above and below by fish that prey on them. Makes me wonder why majority of lures are colored the same. Why not make them reversed (light on top dark on bottom) so they are easier to see by the preditors :confused:

Good idea...except they wouldn't mimick the bait though. Might be worth trying.

If you try it let us know how it works!!

Don't bother getting fancy with the test though, just turn the bait upside down. I'm talking about soft plastics, like an assassin. I've heard of this before.

Kinda interesting, however I've noticed that when I take somebody else fishing and they're not catching, when I look at their bait, a lot of times its upside down. Just a thought.

Good Stuff

This thaught has crossed my mine many times and I have thaught about flipping my bait over as well. Why have a jig with a white belly and a chartreuse back when crappie feed up. I bet they will think it was the color combo when it was probably just the white.

played with this type stuff for many years and i can tell you the fish just do not care.
i have even painted crankbaits upside down and they work just find.
only real thing i have discovered in 50 years of lure making is that fish for the most
part do NOT care about color. many more important triggers to get strikes than color.
