Let me know what y'all think will fish best (lake Palestine). I know if they're hungry they'll eat about anything but l'm looking for y'all's opinions since y'all have a lot more experience than me. Also any critiques are welcome

All of those are great ties and beautiful combos. I don't know Palestine so I can't offer any local knowledge.
I fish mostly light stained water so I would reach for the pink first then the blue or anything with chartreuse in it. In muddy water I would fish the black or gold and in clear water I would go with the white.
Nice job on those.

I like the Black?Chart. The Dragonfly with the Chart.Yellow Maybe. The pearl/red combo deserves a try especially in the brighter part of the day. My money is on the BL./Ch. as I have always had luck with it in the stained water of Palestine. Depth will play a part. Darker=Deeper. If you have areas of lighter stain or shallow water I would go with pearl combo then pink. If that copper had a ligter or even darker contrast color I would have more confidence in it. I would tie copper with a brighter orange or hot pink. Sound weird but it works well in stained mid-depths and lower light situations in that stained water.j I need to learn how to post pics and then I can show you what I tie for stained situations.

Well I don't know your lake as I have never fished it, heck if it's not Toledo Bend or Sam Rayburn and maybe a few small ponds near my home town, I have not fished it. Salt Water I have fished from Lake Charles to Corpus, but that is not what this is about. For me on this lake, Chart/Blue/Chart is tops, next is probably Chart/Black/Chart, then others. One I especially like lately is Hot Pink/Chart Estaz/Chart. If the water clears more so I can see my jig 3 feet down or more, then it's Silver/Silver/Blue, Silver/Blue/White along with some others like using my Baitfish chenille or Rainbow chenille.

Now if this lake really get stained like from a big rain, then I go with Flame Red/Black & FL Yellow Nylon/Hot Orange and it kills them if on the banks of the water is stained pretty bad.

For me the best of these is the very bottom Black/Black/Chart.

For the most part these are my go to colors, but I do experiment with all kinds of things and some work and some don't so much, LOL!

Don't know Palestine so no reason for me to answer.

Good looking jigs, sir!

I think the White/White/Red is my favorite.

IMHO,. the top batch needs more orange. Orange/brown is a great combo for Palestine,
especially in the spring, I think it imitates small crawfish.
It will catch crappie , bass and even channel cat.

good looking baits

Love jigs that have color, but on Pal don't forget the shad colors is what works most of the time. The jigs and tying is great.
