    Default Best color for stained waters

    Sir,

    In your opinion what colors do you recommend for heavily stained water. With the rains of early spring and of course all the rains this winter what have you found to work the best? Thank you.

    LOL... That was easy huh!
    Hands down, dirty water in the spring, white. Or some variation of it. I like to add a little chartreuse to the white too.
    If you will watch nature, everything in the water in early spring, has been living deep, and in murky / muddy water. They are all pale, ghostly white. Yet, the fish you catch this time of year are some of the healthiest, fattest fish of the year! Right?

    Case in point. we were fishing water 47 degrees This Sunday, visibility down about 1 foot at best. Caught a couple on black/chartreuse... couple on Pink/Black Chartreuse.. Then i say a couple of dying shad. Pale, White, Dying Shad,. Grabbed a white Pico Curl Tail, Chartreuse Wedge head jig, and caught 20+ in the next half hour. All of them were fat as pigs, and full of 2 inch shad. BTW.... They shad were coming to the surface dying.... and guess what..... so were the crappie. Boat sitting in 24 to 30 foot of water, catching fish over that one foot deep. Occasionally, you could actually see them boil on the grub. they were eating shad.
    Another tip.... This pattern repeats itself every year. Every Year. Water temp doesn't matter that much either. Its a pattern. In three weeks, they will be serious pr-spawn, right now, they are full on feed bag.

    Great Question.

    Thanks

    Hey, once that water gets into the 60's, use those colors. They won't be as hungry then,and thats when colors tend to aggravate them into bitting. Color at that time seems to trigger more bites
