I was on vacation in Missouri and went fishing with a friend who does not bass fish all that much and had to use his gear. Water looked like coffee and cream. I used a fire tiger colored spinner bait with a chartreuse and orange colorado blades and i caught 18 bass an hour for 2 hours straight. my pal caught 3 using live bait. He gave it to me and it is the only spinner bait I use in real dirty water now here in Texas. Is it the color or the confidence, i do not know.
