Your Opinion ?

Ok all you Muskie and Pike fisherman/women here is a question for you. If you could pick four (4) color combinations of surface lures (jerk baits) what color combos would you choose?

Hey Jeff
Not a hard core musky guy but I think the big 4 for me would be..
Black
White/Red
Firetiger
Hot Orange

Scary, but I concur with Fishhead!

However, if a nice flashy silver could be added to any and all, that would be nice as well!!

Jeff,
From my observations fishing with people who know muskies:

Black
Black/Red
White (with some orange/red combo colors)

I can't think of anything else for surface lures.

Jeff,
These have worked for me in all types of top-water situations- bass, pike and ski-
(in order of effectiveness)
1) Black- The best by far, others trail far behind
2) Dark green back, orange belly...or just plain orange
3) Chartruse
4) White

Hope that helps ya

Surface - black (isn't everything on the surface black when seen from below?)

Below - red/white or red/silver

Thanks for your help in color selection. We chose to put black on every lure and used the other color ideas. Watch for the new "Goof Ball" coming this season!

    • There appears to be enough venison laying on the roads, gonna add a bit of that too!!
    • I've been informed that I'll be making this again this weekend up at the camper for some friends that will be joining us.
    • same here!!!!!!not many birds right now. the wrens sure are noisy. catbirds are about the only thing eating the jelly. i'm going to be pulling the mealworm and jelly feeders soon.   my frustration is not having any morning doves around. and them gosh darn friggin sparrows.
    • It took me almost a year to get those flying squirrels out of my attic about 20 years ago, never did figure out how they got in and out.                                                My birds seem to have all but disappeared. Hope it’s nesting time and they’ll be back soon. Stupid catbirds keep slurping up my grape jelly though. 
    • Nancy, Welcome to the forum.   Thanks for the update. A lot of things can change in the last 10 years! 
    • June 2019 According to secchi disc readings, Eagle Lake near Battle Lake, MN is ranked #1 & Lake Six in the far north of Otter Tail County is ranked #2 w/ depth of 140 ft & clarity readings at times better than Eagle Lake.
    • I see plenty of people fail to slow down for a deer in the ditch, like the deer knows not to jump out.  Or a deer crosses and people don't slow down, even though there is a good chance there's more than one.   I had one run square into the side of my car.  Never saw it.  I thought I got sideswiped by car.  It rocked my car pretty good.  Deer got up, took 5 steps and fell over dead.    
    • Deer jumps out into the 4lane roadway at night, good luck with that speedy reaction time.      Don't over react and put it into oncoming traffic or the ditch.
    • Although I agree,  a higher deer population comes with more collisions.  Ever increasing speed, inattentive driving, and less and less dirt roads have lead to more in my opinion.  Reaction time is paramount to Avoiding deer car collisions.  
    • That part of 94 to Monti is bad for road kills! 🙁
