Lure Colors

Much has been made about lure colors and which colors are best under certain conditions. A tip to remember is that bright colors such as red, chartreuse and sparkle colors should be used for darkly stained or muddy water and more natural colors like green, black and silver used in water where fish are relying more on their eyesight to locate prey. Night fishing, oddly enough, often requires black. The dark crankbait body can be seen against the dim light in the night-time sky by a fish deeper than the lure.
