OK, you pull up into your favorite chute off the river, and the two inches of rain earlier in the week has the water muddy.
What color jig you pulling out of your box first?

You pull in and look at the water and you can see the bream bedding on the bottom its so clear. What color you pulling out first?

You pull in and it looks stained, but not muddy, what color you going with?

And one last question... does the cloud cover make you change your mind in any of these situations?


Thanks.

What color jig you pulling out of your box first? Any dark color /chartruse

You pull in and look at the water and you can see the bream bedding on the bottom its so clear. What color you pulling out first? silver sparkles, gold sparkles , blue / with white tails.

You pull in and it looks stained, but not muddy, what color you going with? purple /chartruse tail.

And one last question... does the cloud cover make you change your mind in any of these situations? Darker colors on overcast days.

Thanks.

I am mostly concerned with light or dark lures and weight of lead to get bait down or slow fall depending on depth and conditions. Don't really think Crappie are concerned with colors as much as fishermen. Presentation, rate of fall, and location are much more important in most cases IMO.

clear, it what you see not what comes up from your jig

stained bearly changes how the fish will see the jigs but be careful using white cause they wont change back!

What color jig you pulling out of your box first? Black

You pull in and look at the water and you can see the bream bedding on the bottom its so clear. What color you pulling out first? It doesn't matter. You can catch bedding bream with a bare hook.

You pull in and it looks stained, but not muddy, what color you going with? Chartreuse

And one last question... does the cloud cover make you change your mind in any of these situations? Nope.
