Watermelon, Green pumpkin and black/blue are basically my go-to colors pretty much anywhere. But I was curious - those of you who use junebug, what makes you use that color? Are there certain water clarities you feel it is a better color for? Time of year? Or I'm sure some of you just prefer it on certain bodies of water. Just interested to hear anyones 2 cents on it. Thanks

Just my two cents worth. West Texas, if it's clear water throw a Motoroil Red Flake, if it's dingy to dirty, Blue Flake. East Texas muddy water Blue Fleck works as well. Clear water in east Texas it can be a wide range.

I use Junebug if he fish are biting it. Simple as that. I like Junebug with a Chartruce tip and Junebug red.

Seems to be good on heavy cloud cover, shallow.

Junebug is a great color! I catch a ton of fish on it, as far as why they bite it who knows. I like it when the water has a little color to it. I fish East Texas most of the time but I caught fish on it while in California. So.. it will work anywhere in my opinion.

Certain lakes seem to be better for Junebug than any other color. Trial and error and consistent results

I will switch it up as the sun starts down I prefer darker colors. Red bug and June bug are real on cloudy days. When it cools off around 60 and below, I only use watermelon and green pumpkin

I have tried both colors on one of the lakes I fish and they just don't want either of those two or candybug but they will eat redbug. I have 10 go to colors, but my top 3 work most of the time.
Not in any special order, these are my favorite colors.


Green pumpkin magic, Watermelon Magic, Watermelon/Slice
Junebug/chartruce, Junebug/Red
Chartruce pepper
Redbug, Candybug
South Africa Special, Black/blue

Many years ago Motoroil was my go to color but I hardly ever throw it any more but that was before Watermelon and Green Pumpkin ever existed also.

What I have found over the years is that outside of the basic standard colors (white, chartreuse,black) the other colors are basically interpreted as color phases of crawfish. The first & second fish we caught went into the livewell and were checked on every few minutes. They would usually (not always) throw up particles of whatever they had been eating. I've caught a lot of fish on red, brown, junebug, and green by seeing crawfish claws that were in the livewell and matching the color to those.

There was a time back in Amistad's hay day .. A 10" junebug power worm was unbelievable. I did learn when all the local places ran out of them that a Zoom Junebug and berkley are not the same color. Redbug in Zoom is the same..
A lot of folks say color doesn't matter.. I think we've all seen times when it made all the difference. If only allowed one bait on Amistad or any Hydrilla lake, my pick would be motor oil red flake.
