    Default Jig head color question ?

    Just a quick survey type color combanation question. In slighty stained to stained water, useing an all chartueese body (curly tail ,tube, marabou, etc.) does a chart. jig head work better or a pink jig head ? Does the pink/chart color contrast draw more strikes ? Does head color even matter ? Would anything be different in clear water ? -Thanks

    I'd use the hot pink due to the contrast. Maybe even black, or chartreuse with a black body/chartreuse tail.

    Orange/chat is a great combo...I think head color does make a difference IMO.

    I use to use colored heads but now I just use plain lead heads. I can't tell any difference.

    It seems that certain colors work the best in different bodies of water in different states!!!
    These are my best color combo's in both clear and stained water:

    Bubblegum/Chartreuse

    I use unpainted heads , but then all we use are tube baits with it inside. But the bigger jigs will sometimes do better in off colored water. But we use bright colors (chartruse , pink, red)or black, mostly bi-colored ones in dingy water.

    Orange with red thread neck or black chenille body to the chartreuse kip tail. I really like the way Len paired up his color combos. Though our objective is contrasting colors for stained water, the presentation still has to imitate natural to the fish. Here lately, we have had good success when the stained water is starting to clear and getting a little light penetration using the same color combinations with a silver chenille body. I think the random flashes create a reaction strike.
