Great Fishing TackleColor Selection: Water clarity may be the most import factor effecting basic color selection.
  • In dirty water, where you can see less than 18 inches deep, try bright or high contrast colors like chartruse, red, or black. These colors catch the fish's eye. In off-colored water, no matter what your lure color you might consider rattles or other noise.
  • In clear water, where you can see more than 3 feet, try to match the natural forage of baitfish, crawfish, worms, etc. You will want to pay attention to size and shape as well as color. In clear water, go with smaller baits and subdued hues.
Many anglers have a color system where they have 3 or 4 or 6 favorite go-to colors to "match the hatch" plus two or three colors they are trying out or phasing out
