    Gary give us some more info. What season of the year are you fishing? What is the approx. water temp? Is the water stained, muddy or clear. What depths of water will you be fishing?

    Stained.. generally browns with a bit of chartreuse is goood. If it is heavily stained and muddy, don't count out blacks and blues.

    White/chartreuce spinner baits, Blue/chartreuce crank baits are good spring combos. I like to use Manns Baby 1 crank bait when the water temp get around 58 they work get in water that from 3 to 6 feet deep. the bait only dives to about 2 feet, but in shallow water, it get the job done.

    Hey Gary,

    This is what I always go by if the water that I'm Ba$$in' in is stained:

    Spinnerbait:
    Dark in color (Black or Blue) with a Big Blade (to make a lot of noise). I think that Ba$$ go more on sound more that site when the water is stained.

    Crankbait:
    Go with something with a loud rattle to it but don't make the bait to big.

    Jig or worm:
    Again I always go with a dark color (Black or Blue) with a rattle chamber of some kind for the Jig.

    All of the things work best for me if the water is 55 degs. or higher, but in the spring & summer I then go more by site, so I use the brite colors.
