Picking the Right Color Fishing Lure for the Right Time of Day and Season

Montana – The most fundamental rule is to fish brightly colored baits in dingy or muddy water and light, subtle colors in clear water. The logic here is that a bass’ visibility is hampered by silt, and colors like chartreuse, yellow and orange are easier to see than bone, pumpkinseed and smoke. On the other hand, when water is clear and the fish can get an unobstructed look at the bait, it’s best to go with softer, more natural colors.

For instance, when water clarity is poor (visibility a foot or less), many pros use spinnerbaits with chartreuse or yellow skirts or crankbaits in a “fire tiger” pattern — orange belly, chartreuse sides, dark green back. Conversely, in clear water, white or white/blue spinnerbaits are favorites, as are crankbaits in chrome, bone and various natural finishes (crawfish, shad, sunfish, etc.).

It’s important to note that many professional anglers far less emphasis on lure color than on other factors. They know it’s more important to learn fish’s location and mood (active or inactive) than to pick a bait with the right size, shape and action.  Once fish are located, then you can focus what colors are working the best to catch a boat load of fish.
