I pretty much only use black and chartreuse, but I wonder if I might be missing out by not trying other colors. What do you guys use?

Just about anything else with Chartreuse in it & If water is really dingy /murky I will step the profile of the bait. 2cents

chart/ ? but I will change the size of bait. from 1/32-1/4 just depends on the wind and depth.

I don’t fish clear water if I can help it, so I am glad you asked about non-clear water. Green pumpkin/ chart is a favorite and a good color, as is black/chart, purple/chart, red/yellow, red/chart, blue/white, pink/white, black/pink, orange/chart, green, green/white. Blue/clear flake...also, I mostly stay away from painted jigheads...seems fish can see the color of lead better than they can most painted on colors at depth.

This is not an exhaustive list by any means, but it will keep you busy for a while and it will help you figure out which direction you want to go, color wise....on the lake(s) you fish.

If I only had one bait, one color and one jig head and I had to use it year round and feed my family....1/16th ball lead-head, #4 hook, Thermocline Black Emerald Shiner would be my pick...if I was limited to using hair jigs, then it would be 1/16th Greasebath made by Jerry’s Jigs.

I hope Todd gives you the opportunity to use the best color in muddy water today when you are at Fork.

You can tell us about how you got your arm broke when you get out of the hospital.

orange and black.


Many living in this generation shall never see the grave, JESUS gave us revelations and the time is very near. Dont be a soul that stands before GOD on judgment day and be told "depart from me, I do not know you".
REPENT, RECIEVE, REJOICE!!!

If I could only use one color in dirty/off colored water it would be purple/chartreuse.

Chartreuse, and any combination with it in it. I especially like purple/ chartreuse also.

Hey Kirk, yes, I did...in fact, the first day, I didn’t even pull a pole or tackle box out (actually, I didn’t take tackle, just rods) as I wanted to fish a couple his setups...and YES...we fished YOUR COLOR almost exclusively (and I bought some just to try at other lakes)...it took me a while to get the jigging action down on those HUGE baits, but once I did, I was able to boat some nice fish with them.

Oh yea, I almost got my arm broke...if I had gotten a good hook set (did NOT), I would have been showing pics of the new Fork record...I just told todd it must have been a bass (I tried for ten minutes to get her to bite again) but I was heartbroken on missing that fish...right where y’all said it was... bang
