That's a pretty good testimony for orange right there. That orange anyway.
I've always been a spinner bait guy myself. I rarely go without one tied on one of my rods. I've always had good luck with spinner baits with gold, orange, green, combination. Especially when fishing them summer months in deeper water. I don't know if I'm correct in thinking so but I've always felt if the body of water I'm fishing has an abundance of perch/blue gill this color combo works.
In the spring time I always use a spinner with red. I've had good days with solid red. But usually go with red/gold or white/red. War Eagle makes a good red/gold one I've had some killer days with. It is primarily red with gold blades, gold head and wire, and some gold in the skirt.
If it ain't yours don't mess with it!
