Traditional or funky colors for your soft plastics

Ok, COVID19 has turned me into the ultimate  DIY'er. Its official,  I'm now entering the lure making realm!!!

My question for everyone is...Do you prefer the traditional colors (Junebug, black &blue, etc) or would you be interested in bright, unique, match the hatch color blends?

As you can see from the pic my shop is loaded with the traditional stuff. Nothing that jumps out at you. I'd love to do some PB&J, reds and maybe some swirls.

Green pumpkin type colors are always desirable. I like some in two tone to match minnow colors. Sparkles add some flash.


Time to go fishin' again!

Re: Traditional or funky colors for your soft plastics

I usually go for natural colors with two major exceptions. For the Ned rig, PB&J is my go to and for a small drop shot worm, the Roboworm in Aaronís morning dawn.

I know that many colors of the same bait work at any given time. For me itís about fishing confidence baits.

Noted. I just received a bunch of color shift powder that's suppose to give an amazing flash. If that doesn't work I have large, small, even spec sized flakes in different colors.

I'm a huge fan of the 2 tone top and bottom baits. I picked up a "C Block" that'll give almost a military fatigue blend between  natural and abstract colors.

Re: Traditional or funky colors for your soft plastics

Any color you like as long as its green

Or black when the river's heavily stained or muddy

Color only matters when it matters, but when it matters, it really matters
