Recently saw a TV program featuring crappie fishing and the use of white and black (mostly) 2" tubes. They did not specify the manufacturer. They were fishing deep, vertically jigging these tubes. Catches were quite impressive. I've never used the color black for any of my panfish plastics. Just wondering if you folks use them and your thoughts as to the effectiveness.

Also...where do you find 2" black tubes? Thanks folks. :)

I USE A GOOD DEAL AS A COMBINATION COLOR FOR CRAPPIE SUCH AS BLACK/CHARTRUCE, BLACK / ORANGE, ECT . When bream fishing a one inch black slider grub on a 1/32 spinner is a must .

Black works really well for me when fish move deep, even a better color for bluegill and redear!

I talked to Doyle at MidSouth Tubes and he told me the number one seller of all time is chart/black.

Alot of the ponds that I fish are pretty stained, so I use Black/Chart on a regular basis, has always produced for me.

a number of years ago we fished the weed beds in Canada drifting with marabou jigs under a stick bobber- #1 color - black/white- at times we would wrap electrician's tape around the body behind the jig head & the crappie loved it- won't leave home without my black/chart stingers nowadays

Shoot a PM to Snake River in the DIY Plastics forum. He will fix you up. Myself I prefer the black and chartreuse combinations.

I did good but of research on this a while ago.
Look it up and you will find the same info I did I'm sure.
But. Black has the best contrast. Even at night. It silhouette the best. Why it is recomended for fishin at night. ESP surface fishing. There a bunch of neat info on it. It throws ya for a loop because you would think black is harder to see.

Stands to reason that when fish look up (and crappie feed up), that's the lightest background they're ever going to see so black would stand out against it the best... even at night.

I'd like to take a whole tackle box full of colors to the ocean and dive down at depth to see the color change. I've been watching a new tv show with guys commercial spearfishing. When they shoot those fish on the bottom, they're nowhere near the same color as they appear when they come to the surface. The red fish range from a dark gray to black when down several feet. Seems like all these "bleeding baits" had just as well have black or gray on them instead of red if fish perceive color the same way humans do.

Yes. On color chart I found red is one of the first colors to disappear. Green blue n purple held there color the deepest.

Black and Chartruse is good but don't over look glow colors in the 2.5'' Caps and Coleman tubes by Southern Pro. Deep , dingy water , or low light I believe the glow baits will help.
