What color do you use the most and why? What are your top 3 or 4 colors you use and why? Do you use different colors in different conditions and if so please give detail?

I'm by no means an expert, but I will say that my favorite has got to be a silver/white or black/white combo. However it really depends on water clarity and what the baitfish in your body of water are. At night I have caught a lot on darker colors like blacks and blues (emulates a silhouette) . And obviously in muddy or stained water, less natural colors seem to do better like chartreuse or pink.

Edit: Like fishin'aholic said, presentation and making sure you're at the right depth in the water column will yield more results than finding a certain color.

Whoops, Somehow I accidently deleted my post.

I could focus more on confidence and correct presentation than specific colors.
