BAIT COLORS FOR BASS

MEXICO BASS FISHING

Sometimes bait color makes all the difference between a day of action and a day of frustration. Accomplished anglers always experiment with different colors until they key on to a presentation that flips a fish's trigger. To get started down the right road in color selection, first look at the water you're fishing and determine if it's clear, stained or dark. Then follow this guide as a starting point and experiment from there. Good Luck!

Clear Water

  • Use subtle colors like white, yellow, brown and black.

  • Often smaller baits work best

  • Go "stealth-mode" with lighter line (6 - 10lb. test)

 

Stained Water

  • Start with subtle colors and work toward vibrant colors.

  • Trial and error is the key to fishing stained water.
