I am a big fan of soft baits, especially craws & grubs. I have discovered over a couple years of bass fishing that in clear water, the bait & fish are darker - bass have darker markings, and crawdads are usually a very dark green. But when water gets muddy, the fish lighten. I used a light-colored soft bait in dirty water conditions recently to catch 3 bass, one after the other. When the water is less muddy, a green pumkin works better. I fish a stream and this is the usual pattern. Anybody notice this?
