Color in my experience of 50 plus years bass fishing is only about ten percent and 90 percent is the action of the bait!
In a shad based lake you can still catch bass on a black spinner bait with black blades.
In a blue gill pond you can still catch bass on a white spinner bait.
Some baits like a buzzbait make so much splashing the fish would never see the color of the skirt.

Why does a black worm with yellow tail catch ten times as many farm pond bass as does a black worm
With a white or fire tail? Thats the one time i think color matters.

I usually just fish the opposite of the light conditions to make is easy for the fish to see it, overcast days i use white, bright sunny days i use black in a weightless worm for example.

Color is used by manufacturers (pimps) and the pro's (their whores) to sell more tackle!

For example: a hula popper or jitterbug comes in many color patterns on the top of the lure but the bottom only comes in 3 colors black white and yellow and the fish cant see the top.

Color is used mainly to separate you from your money!

I think the more clear the water is the more the color matters. Stained to muddy water I throw black Or dark jigs and soft plastics. I’ll throw char. Or char/ white colored spinner bait or crank baits. Clear water I keep it more natural colors. But that’s just me.

hmmmmmm - Hula Popper on C-Rig. Do you rig the Hula Popper weedless?

I will say that several years ago, I went out with a big name guide on a big name lake and his opinion closely
resembled that of the op.



PM me to let me know how it was!

Color? NO ~ Shades? YES.

Dark colors vs light colors can always be a factor. Also depends on the time of year and if the fish are feeding on one certain forage.

White/Chartreuse/Green/Yellow are all the same as a general rule.

Black/Brown/Red/Purple/ same also.

Granted, there ARE times that a definite color will produce more than another. But that is rare in my experience.

I really think the only two choices are exotic and natural colors.

Color doesn't matter as long as it's watermelon candy red or green pumpkin.
