What are your "go to" or must have colors for soft plastics?

Go...

Green Pumpkin
Watermelon red / California 420
Black blue flake
Blue fleck
Pearl or shad color

I have many others but tend to stick with these 90%

I've always wondered....what does "watermelon" and "pumpkin" mean when applied to bait colors?

All you need is green pumpkin. Period. It will catch fish in any lake. It is THE MUST HAVE.
