    I don't think in the short time that I have been a member here that I have ever seen only one jig in your pictures. Usually there are a few different colors in the pictures. Cool post.

    Sat on a stump flat with a bunch of other boats, could see the fish on the electronics. Only one boat catching anything. It was one of the colors of Baby Shad i did not have. Some days they are just fickle

    I don't know...color to me is and will always be secondary to lure shape, size and lure action - both in design and how an angler imparts it. White is for sure a color that works for most soft plastic shapes when fish are found, but many other colors would have worked that day.

    Lure shape and spike tail quiver Ketch used slowly and methodically were by far the biggest reasons fish were caught. Recently I switched to a blunt rounded tail 1 1/4" grub rigged on a 1/16 oz unpainted ball head jig and caught fish of different species 10:1 to my partner. Before that, I was using another grub design and it did okay but not nearly as good as:

    (modified) Definition of superstition: a belief in causation (why anglers use certain lures and colors) leading to certain consequences of an action or a practice (IE catching fish) based on such a belief

    Now, I can't prove why the design and addition of glitter to the above lure catches fish, but hey, IF IT WORK, IT WORKS! Using certain lures in certain colors may prove to be based on a simple belief that since they caught bunches of fish, they must be the only ones one should rely on in certain situations or even a majority of the time. Many of us that vary lure designs and colors on the same outing and catch fish on many of them, reduce the reliance on superstition (unfounded belief) when choosing lures but rather on past and present evidence to the contrary.
    (Note: the lure shown caught crappie, perch, sunfish and bass on the same outing as did four other designs in different colors (based on my color superstition).

    Ketch provided us with one color and design that caught fish, but I'll bet his skill using that lure was far more important.

    Again, right place /the right lure(s) worked the right way - gets it done !

    Confidence plays a role in jigging no doubt
