must keep color(s)

13 posts in this topic

just wondering what color or color combo is everyones have to have on lures. sure everybodys got favorite lures and if you could only have one lure it's it. but what if you were forced to use a random lure... and it was all you had for the rest of your life... what color(s) would it have to be?

mine is absolutely red and white. no pearl/flashy junk.

Mine would be a #7 Perch shadrap. I have caught just about every type of gamefish on these so the confidence of catching something on one of these is a real plus. If you catch enough fish the teeth marks will cause it to become a little bit heaver by absorbing some water and it will act like a husky jerk and become neutrally buoyant and that is when it will out fish any plug out there.

I favor a Perch/Tiger pattern and a blue/silver pattern. Every tackle box ought to have these two patterns. Chartreuse would be my 3rd choice, especially at night or on a cloudy day in stained water. I think the Chartreuse color makes the sillouette of the lure more visible to the fish. I also like the patterns in the 7 inch or larger range for night fishing. I think they can see it better than a smaller lure pattern.

i did identical posts for must keep colors. 11 forums in all from the metro north to LOTW. the winning colors after 24 hours was black and orange. so i figured i'd pull one of my favorite lures from my private stash and share it. i call it ''Star Factory''. first i'll appologize for the amount of pics, it's just got so many angles it took 10 to get most of it. lures like this take an extraordinary long time to complete. i hope you like it. it's not all blk/orng. in fact it's a meld of 11 colors but dominant blk/orng. very nice contrast i think...

I'm so SURPRISED to hear you say that paceman!

I like perch, firetiger, & bluegill in shad raps, but I'll try anything. Have had some good luck with the #10 silver xrap of late.

    • What are your guys favorite chatterbaits and conditions to throw these in? Any favorite trailers to use? What type of setup/line do you like to use with them?  Thanks.
    • We had a period in August where the wind wasn't too bad but since sturgeon opened there's been a weekly pattern of fronts coming through on Thursday/Friday and Saturday is WINDY then on Sunday when you're going home it's beautiful. Today and yesterday are no exception either. Although the forecast for this weekend seems to be nice.    With sturgeon coming to an end on Friday I'll probably be fishing muskies. Darn!  
    • Ya I am really in a box on this one, whatever will I do when there are never any good mainstream candidates to vote for?  I'm not sure we could have two worse options than the trash on stage last night. We all deserve better.
    • So who won, crazy Donald or big money republicanish Clinton?
    • So I gather by your lack of gloating that lije the rest of the country you think he lost the debate?  I wasn't interested enough to watch it from gavel to gavel but from what I saw he just got his butt handed to him by the mist vulnerable Democratic candidate in many decades. 
    • Great start for the team.  With a healthy Teddy, AP, and O-line we would have been really excited to be 3-0 having played Green Bay and Carolina.  Being 3-0 without Teddy, AP, and with a patchwork O line is almost unbelievable.   I do still have concerns about the offense.  They D can't win every game for them so the O will need to figure it out sooner or later.  If they can be even an average offense then I like our chances but right now they are far from even being average.
    • Well... The beast didn't suffer lazy eye, no coughing jag, no seizure, no chicken wobble. I guess that constitutes a win for the libs ?? Hahahaha.. Although, I think the beast used all her ammunition. Whereas, with two debates to go, the donald still has a lot of ammo.... Including a few grenades....
    • Trump may want to ask Johnson to be included in the upcoming debates because standing there and having Hillary hand him his butt all night isn't doing him any good.
