Has anyone thought why certain color spinners work at different times.

9 posts in this topic

Well I was reading a book about catching trout and this is an explanation on red. My rendition is more basic but I think its the jist of it.

Red is a common color is displayed when fish at spawn and the predator fish keey off on the change knowing it time for easy pickens.

Now for the other colors I'm not sure how it attracks the fish. Itjust maybe something as simple as being easily seen or mimicking bait fish that are schooling at the time

What are your thoughts

good question.... I have always wondered why a subtle color change or difference can make a difference. It is fun to me to be able to use to colors at the same time on border waters to see what is going to produce the best that time or day. I have no clue really; but higher visibility seems to produce more and then some times a more natural presentation other times? My faves always seems to be a red and white or black and white... which seems to bring up visibility again. and we can't forget one of my favorite french words chartreuse

How come it is when red is the color of the hook or lure it is for improved visibility for the fish, but when red is the color of the line it is so the line cannot be seen by the fish?

Color preference seems to be ever changing. I have some lakes where if it's not flourescent orange you just don't catch much. Other lakes it just seems that's a terrible color.

Not to mention how it seems to change from hour to hour at times. The fish want what they want, when they want it and where they want it. wink

I believe the color that triggers the fish has a lot to do with the color of the water and or the level of sunlight.

The red line craze was just a ploy to catch fisherman, not fish. A lot of people, myself included blushcrazyblush, fell for it. Red can be seen, quite well, by fish for long distances.

    •   All good things come to an end sometime. At some point we realized that the cabin that we always wanted just was not going to happen for us. So, for less then just the taxes and cost of up keep on a cabin we have a park model camper where we can have family and grand kids come up and go fishing any weekend we want. Plus lots to do around the Brainerd area if you don't want to sit in the camper on a rainy day. Last weekend we ran up to Walker to Reeds and pick a gal of Blue Berries on the way.
    • We had our permy site for 14 years. It was a blast the first 10. Neighbors changed, other things changed. We got tired of it and finally had enough. It was getting so with the yearly fee we felt we needed to be out there every weekend.   I still fish the lake in the fall but don't miss it. Now we can go to other places to do something different. With that said I'd do it all over again.    
    •   Well after inspecting, I'm really starting to lean that the blade mounts are bent. I can't find any pictures or anything......so I'm not sure. If these just take a normal shaver blade.....then they gotta be bent.....Anyone have any insite?
    • On June 30 I sent the dnr an email this is their response, "Hello Rob,
      The hunting regs will be out the last week in July"
    • I agree about the lodge. After gear and any snow it can become a heavy pull. The lodge fit in my 1500 chevy silverado (6.5 ft box) as long a you put the flat end of the tub to the front and when closing the tailgate you had to pick up the end of the sled just a little for the gate to close. 
    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
