One Color

20 posts in this topic

Hey guys if you only could have one color in your tackle box what would it be? This would be for every kind of fish.

I would have to choose Chartuse green I have had the all around best luck with this color for just about every speices of fish.

Ditto on the white.

Besides, I'm colorblind so almost everything looks black or white to me.

White here too.

I think it is very universal because almost every fish in the water has white on them somewhere. This makes white a good choice because it can mimic in some way nearly all baitfish in the water.

All the white responses surprised me. I will try white more often. I seem to have my best luck winter or summer with glow jigs the ones that are kinda yellow. This is a great site.

Chartruese or fire/bright orange! Deadly for anything in my book!

I like white, but the one one color that I have on most often for the species I fish for (walleyes, bass, pike, musky and lake trout) is ORANGE.

      First time up in Brainerd in 3 years. Went to big trout on Friday, thinking it would be a guarantee (which it usually is). Nope! Not even the rock bass were hitting! Only ended up with a couple pike and a couple largemouths. The inspector at the boat launch was showing me some pics of a couple lake trout this one guy had caught a few days earlier, a 34 and 36 incher! Saturday we were going to fish gull, but it was jam packed with people! Was there a tournament going on? Ended up at a secret little lake where my wife caught bass and pike one right after the other, while I couldn't get a bite to save my life! Was good to be back up there after a 3 year absence. Hopefully I'll find the time to get up there again.

      Very nice walleye no matter how the picture came out! Do not see many of those each year!

      We ended up keeping 9 walleyes and releasing 3 slot fish between 19" and 23".

      Here's the proof of the 28" I told you about today cliff. Unfortunately this picture doesn't make this fish out to be nearly as impressive as she was in person. I'm gonna need to work on my selfie skills.

      Interesting headline in the Virginia newspaper this morning. The Landing is being sued by past employees for not paying minimum wage, not paying overtime, and keeping up to 50% of the employees tips that were received via credit card.

      Drove to Ely yesterday and there were some pockets of great color. I would definitely think next weekend would be worth the trip.

      I would say that we are about 1/4 into fall colors in this area.
