Tips & Tricks
BASS FISHING TIPS AND TRICKS:
to effectively use color to catch more fish!
- Try bright colors in
Lime Green, and
- Use dull or natural looking colors in
Dark Green, or
overcast days or
use light or bright colors
Lime Green, and
Blue, and Bubble Gum.
- In Spring, instead of the usual dull or natural looking colors you would
try in clear water try startling colors and color combinations such as
Pizzazz Orange and
- Spinnerbaits usually work in clear water. But if fish are spooked or the
lighting situation is too bright for ultra clear water try using
or a color on your Spinner blade to reduce the flash.
- As a rule of thumb use
in bright light situations.
- In dull lighting or discolored water or warm water use middle range
colors, less flash and added fluorescence.
- Add Bright Red strips or
crescent shapes any time you want to provide the look of gills or blood from
an injury. This helps elicit a quicker predatory response towards the lure.
- If fishing deep water 10 ft. and deeper:
use color combos such as
Brilliant Blue &
such as Lime Green
these colors have maximum contrast and reflectance and will be more visible and effective on fish which are lurking deep.
- On the belly of topwaters or shallow diving plugs in calm clear waters
in bright light try
and/or Splash Blue.
This will attract the fishes attention while helping the lure blend with the
sky and clouds so the fish doesn't get too good a look at the lure. But try
bellied lures or
Bright Red on
bellied lures in calm murky waters or low light to improve
visibility of the lure.
- The colors Fluorescent
Lime Green, and Pizzazz
Orange, or Bright Red are
generally good at mid depths; 10 ft. or less.
- When fishing crankbaits on active fish under normal conditions it is
always a good idea to try colors and color combinations that resemble the
colors of the forage that inhabits the local waters. Then if the bite slows
down don't change the lure or presentation but try some small color changes
to catch those more neutral fish. Because bass mostly rely on their sense of
sight for predation, this approach will produce quality bass as consistently
as any fishing technique the angler has available.
