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.

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
