Let's bring this back to fishing today... What if your GO TO lure?

Mine is a simple jig and a 4" grub in smoke or purple.

It's great for walleye and bass.

What's your bait for the fish you chase?

How important is head colour GBW?

Good question! It sure seems to me it does, but I have no scientific data to back that up.

 

One could simply state "well I catch more fish on black jigheads) ie myself, in which you could retort "well you use a black jighead roughly 85% of the time".

 

And you would be correct.

 

The results are skewed because different coloured jigheads have not been used an equal amount of time.

 

Then you add in species, weather, water clarity etc and its a virtually impossible model to distinguish a clear result

I was usually targeting bass when i could still fish, and usually had between 4-6 rods rigged at once. The water I was fishing had a lot on influence on lure choice, not much, if any surface bite here for smallies in 15-25 feet of water on Lake Erie. Some inland lakes and bays of Lake Erie don't have a lot of good areas for crankbait or lures with exposed hooks, so choices varied.

 

Waters with largemouth? a 6 inch worm or lizard, texas rigged, lightly weighted for a slow swimming retrieve in shallower weedy woody water.

Live target Mouse for top water bass. Perch husky jerk for toothy critters. Senkos wacky rigged weightless when I am confused. One of the reasons that dark colors work so well when fishing deep is there are shade differences between black and absence/reduced light. When you use the primary colors they are absorbed by water so as light loses that color band they become the same color as the surrounding waters. Black however will still show up as a bright spot or a dark spot in the water thus more visible in most cases.

This is a tough question...

 

Probably a white bucktail jig. Specks, lakers, pike, walleye, muskie, smallies and pike have all been caught on one.

Tubes. In all colours and sizes. 12 months of the year

Hahahaha remnds me of earlier this summer.

 

I had never used tubes outside of laker fishing.

 

I picked up 4 packs of tubes and some of those northland inertube jigs.

 

I went to my favorite spot at the rapids for bass.

 

I was txting GBW at the time.

 

I tied on this colour thats was kinda like light rust

 

First 4 casts I had 4 nice bass. GBW was laughing at me as I was kinda getting mad that I had never bothered with tubes before lol

 

In an hour and a half I think I ended up with 22 or so bass and a few were 4 club

 

I didnt even try another colour or change baits. Every fish came on the same tube lol

 

Tubes are deadly!
