It has been debated if fish see in colour or not. Simple logic, if they could not see in colour they would not be so colourful…

I certainly believe in Lure colour and how different colours are more productive than others at different times, in different light conditions. Even observed how a drastic change in colour can be productive after you have just hooked and lost or caught a fish and the same or similar coloured lure is not being taken.

Collectively, it would be nice to hear first hand from our own experiences:

1) Your Favorite colours (please specify salt or fresh water).
2) Favorite colours at different times of day.
3) Any Preferable colours for particular species.

Bobby,

I was using the Rapala X Rap in blue colour (the one you suggested) yesterday in the harbour during the Cuda time (little light during Dusk). I didn't feel any hook ups but that place was crawling with Barracudas (and hunting too) and I could see those bad guys. I came home with disappointment and when I was giving my plug a freshwater rinse, I saw that the lure had sustained nasty barracuda attack and has been pinctured and Saltwater got in. By the way, got to tell you thanks.

As far as the specifics of this topic, I was using some other lures too by that time and cudas didn't try to eat them. The other lures were - Bomber (golden), Rapala Super Shad Rap (Fire Tiger).

Hi LF,

Seal it with a resin and use it. Or just use plain Areldide

You could disolve clear plastic in chloroform to make a glue and use that as well. Be careful..

Dusk and dark, redwhite and floro Orange work well for me particularly the former.

Regards,

Bruce

light plays strange trick underwater. I am sure that like birds fish also see colour and have an extended spectrum.

In the day in clear freshwater realistic plugs have always worked for me.

When the water gets muddy then big noisy plugs work better. Shiny plugs and spoons just don' seem to get the bites even though this is what I was taught by the experts.

In low light conditions. That is dawn, dusk and even dark overcast days. Fire tigers, crawdads, clowns, golds and red heads work the best.

One observation I have made is that if you are fishing a floating or shallow running plug then the belly colour is more important. The reverse is the case for deep divers.

Retrival speed also plays a mager roll in the whole scene. But that is for another discussion
