Lure Color in Dirty Water

2212 Views 6 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  bigfish123
What are your opinions on lure color in murky water for stripers? Conventional wisdom says bright colors in dark water. But I hear all sorts of things. What do you guys think?

Also, what colors in particular?

Any difference in color selection for places that are permanently dirty vs. when a normally clear place turns murky?

Good Question???

Patrick made some good points there,.Some guys go home when the water is brown,I've had some great days after a storm when the water turns color,I've done well with red on red bucktail,Green white,yellow white bucs.Red bombers,red head bottles.In my opinion if the fish are on bait,they'll find it,no matter what the water clarity is.Bottom line is,I won't go home just because the water is dirty.
Fishing the Edge where clean & dirty water meet can be very productive,sometimes the fish will sit right on the edge.
