What Is The Best Lure Color For Redfish? [Tests & Results!]
What is the best lure color for redfish?
In this series of tests and experiments, I will take two lures and put them in a head-to-head battle to see which catches more redfish.
Does lure color have a major impact on your success or is it all about lure profile?

What Is The Best Lure Color For Redfish? [VIDEO]
- Rod: TFO Pro 7’6″ Medium Power
- Reel: Daiwa Fuego 2500
- Line: 10 lb J-Braid 8 Grand
- Leader: 20 lb Ande Monofilament
- Scent: Dr. Juice Inshore Slam Scent
- Lure 1: Gold Digger BOMBER Paddletail rigged on Hoss Helix 3/0 with 1/8th
- Lure 2: Slam Shady BOMBER Paddletail rigged on Hoss Helix 3/0 with 1/8th
This is the first edition of the Light VS. Dark lure test!
The size of the lures is the same as is the line, rod, reel, everything is the same!!
Except for the color of the TWO lures.
One is the Slam Shady and the other is the Gold Digger.
I made 3 casts with one lure then switched to the other and repeated this pattern throughout the trip.
Test #1 Results
It was a slow day and we can’t definitively say one color is better than the other.
However, we did learn that the Gold Digger BOMBER caught redfish in conditions it technically is not designed to be used in.
Darker lures are known for working well in low light conditions or even at night.
But even on a super clear day, it was able to hook into two solid redfish.
Presenting something out of the ordinary and slightly different from the rest is what set this lure apart on this trip.
Curious redfish will come over and take a swipe at it.
This is just the first of a series of tests with these two lures as well as rattle experiments coming soon!!
When do you prefer to use darker-colored lures?
