I like a dark profile for surface lures at night. They seem to be able to image it better as they are looking up. I have caught lots of bass at night on a black bladed/black skirted spinner bait slow rolling it just under the surface next to the grass lines.
On the deep ledges most any color has worked and I have caught just as many on down sized willow blades as opposed to the bigger Colorado blades. They are nocturnal and can pick up the slightest vibration and sound at night. Deep water bass feed this way all the time any way. Past 20 ft. in most lakes it is total darkness. But here again Big Bass want a big bite and they are not easily fooled day or night in deep water. There is just more feeding going on at night with the huge bass. I still try to match the size bait fish with a little flash of the blades and a lot of Minnow scent to get that bite.
As long as your bait is carrying everything possible for the bite to take place then you have done everything you can do. This being sight, sound, vibration, taste, and scent.
Each person you work with holds some promise to your future success. www.lakeoviachic.com
