The Magazines - Color Secrets
Great issue of BassMaster this month. It had a super article on the hot colors to use. It basically matched the optimum color choice with the clarity of the water.
Here's the bottom line:
Clear water - use lures in the range of green to brown (Pumpkin)
Stained water - use lures that vary from purple to red (Red Shad color)
Muddy water - dark blue to black (Junebug color)
Pretty simple - even I can remember this.
