Choosing Worm Or Lizzard Colors
When looking at plastic worms-French fries-lizards and other plastic baits, if I said there is a rainbow of colors to choose from I wouldnt be stretching it a bit. Here are some basic colors that will work for Shay day in-day out in our middle Tennessee Lakes. There are many other colors that will work as well-but just go slow and choose wisely.
As far as worm length you can stay with a 6 inch or 7 inch worm in most of our lakes. That doesnt mean that you wont catch fish on a 10 inch worm-or on a 4 inch worm but Shay has found that the 6 & 7 inch worms produce more strikes over the course of the day.
Clear Water: Green Pumpkin-Pumpkin Seed-RootBeer-Black and Black/Blue are Shays choices. In clear water dont overlook a slim straight tailed worm. These fall a little faster and the fish can see them easily.
Dingy Water: Red Bug-June Bug-Electric Purple and Electric Blue are Shays
Favorites: In dingy to muddy water opt for a fatter ribbon tailed worm that will produce more under water vibrations which the fish will feel many times before they can see them.
Specialty Worms: Colors for floating worms-trick worms and wacky worms range from white-bubblegum-cotton candy and yellow.
