Thanks again.


If those are your confidence baits, throw them in the clear water, both of those colors will produce. A solid white worm has always been one of my secret weapons, senkos especially.

On Alan Henry, flue fleck is the color that nearly everyone throws. Also, green pumpkin, green pumpkin/red flake, watermelon/red fake and other color of green. Hope this helps.

Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.

I like the Roboworm colors a lot for clear water. Aaron's magic, Aaron's madness, margarita mutilator. Grew up fishing California in some ultra clear lakes and these worms were always winners.

pumpkin w chartreuse tail, this has been a number one color up north here for 2-3 yr now.

Outcast tackle is where I saw them first but I don't think they make stickworm baits anymore so I use this Yum worm. To bad too they used to be $25/100 worms

pumpkin seed, plum and fire and ice depending on depth.


Interesting write up on why you shouldn't get too obsessed with color.

Sounds like every color works! Just pick one and you should get bit.

Follow up for my questions. again thanks for the replies.
turns out the water was stained with pollen from all the trees. There was yellow pollen floating on the lake. It was not as clear as normal.
The bait the worked in the end was a swimming fluke jr. in a shad color and a roboworm in a shad color. buddy did good on a bubble gum finesse worm.
Here is my smallest at 15" largest was 18" A pickerel was landed on a lake fork perch color scheme swim bait. But pickerel did not want to wait for a photo opt. and flipped out of my kayak.


May the Good Lord bless you with a bend in your rod.

Nice fish! Thanks for sharing your results.

That looks like a fun place to fish with all those lily pads. A frog or a buzzbait would probably do well there.
