If you don't catch northerns on orange and black they simply aren't biting or there aren't any in the lake!!!! Any weather any time of the day, orange and black, overcast sunny rainy foggy snowing blowing etc... etc..... Orange and black... It's that simple.....

They usually have Orange and Black on them.

Let's see. There's perch patterns, plain ol' white, silver/black shad patterns, gold, chartruese, chrome/blue, crayfish red, black, orange/yellow...

Great thing about northerns, you can zone in on a color and find out they are biting just as well on another. I love catching 'em.

Chrome/blue would be my top though, followed closely by white.

Large Black/silver and Perch colored raps have always done good for me. Remember trolling large black/silver #13's on Little Man Trap Lake a few years ago about this time of year and just killed the northerns!

I'll 5th or 6th or whatever the Black and Orange comments.

This lure is my go to on any lake, any conditions, any time of year for pike fishing (and muskies at times too). Its a horrible picture, but black bucktail body, trailer hook with yellow twister tail and a "fire" colored blade that goes from chartreuse to a bright orange. The Candyspin!

Perch crank, or Firetiger crank. We almost always draw the triangle black "stripes" on any cranks we get, to resemble the perch pattern, for pike or walleye. Sharpies are always in our box smile

But black and orange or black and chartruese are in general the colors on those lures, so I agree with the consensus for our fishing.

Stripes work no mater the color.

But if you want to see the big girls ya gotta use pink.

I agree with pink, pink catches fish, just can't find pink lures very often.

So orange and black or perch patterns are good.

Hammered Orange and Gold

Five of Diamonds

Chartreuse and Green

When I think Northerns I think spoons. They are fun when they are hitting Amazon Rippers though. I just love flying fish.

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
