It seems the general consensus is 1/32 ounce jigs.

What are the favorite colors?

I like a purple/white tube oryellow/white on a 1/32 oz jig.

I've always done well with white or chartreuse.

Do colors attract fisherman or the fish?

Any other favorite colors out there?

on the lake I'm fishing.

I've had very good results on plain white, plain chartreuse, plain pink, and a whole host of other colors with chartreuse tails. The lakes I fish are mostly stained to somewhat murky, ranging in "color" from green to a brownish tint. Visibility (water clarity), on the waters I fish most, is generally less than 1ft (a chartreuse jig will disappear from sight, before dropping >1ft deep).

I don't go with the "consensus", though ... favoring a 1/16oz jighead, for most applications/methods I use. ........ cp :cool:

i fish a lot of different waters

the water clairty and sunny or clouds make a different bright colors work on some days dark colors on other days.
colors that work good are black/chart. red/chart, red/yellow ,white/chart

plain chartruse, white, red/white.

I am partial to combinations of yellow, chartreuse, or pink. I too love the pink head, black/pink beavertail, though. But if I was starving and was forced to pick one jig and color to catch crappie to eat, I'd take a 1/32 oz. chart/green head with a 2" yellow Riverside twistertail grub. It doesn't always catch the bigger fish, but it's never let me down on a day when nothing else works.

black/chartreuse and blue/chartreuse

I'm fishing stained water and pink/white has produced the most fish for the last three years for me.

I always start out with a Pink/Chartreuse Superjig from Midsouth. Pink/White is a very popular color on our lake, (Lake Nimrod, AR), and I always have my old standby...Black/Chart. Glitter.
I guess I'm the oddball because while a lot of guys jig with 1/8 oz. jigheads here I prefer the 1/4 oz. Bighead Jigheads for jigging 8 to 13 feet

In La. a variety of colors are favorites. Blue/White and Black/Chart are the favorites. Chart is the favorite color tail with any body color. Flake is also good.

Actually its "the angle of the dangle" then color.

I really like black body chartruese tail. Caught me a 2lber in November with it. (I like the fluorocent orange head as well) From talking to others in SE VA the black/chartruese combo is very popular.

black, flo. green, blaze orange , hot pink or a combo hot pink/flo. green are the colors that work best for me.

On my home lake where it is muddy most of the time, I will use red/char or orange/char when I am fishing 4 foot deep and shallower, when I go deeper than that I go with white or black/white. It works for me, in muddy water anyway.

Hey Crappieday, man I love those jig heads, I have not missed near as many fish lately.
