The Truth About Topwater Lure Colors (And Whether Or Not Color Matters)
Does the color of your topwater lure really matter?
There’s a lot of debate about this subject, and in this video, I’m going to share with you the truth.
We’ll take into consideration time of day, where on the lure color matters most, and more.
Let’s dive in!
The Truth About Topwater Lure Colors [VIDEO]
Here’s what matters most when it comes to catching fish with topwaters:
Action and time of day.
If you’re working it across the surface in low light conditions in a feeding zone, then you’ve got a good chance at hooking up.
Color matters, just not as much.
Topwater lures are obviously fished on the surface so fish won’t be able to see most of the lure, just the underside.
And since most fish have white bellies, topwater lures with white bellies are typically the best choice.
Now that being said, there is a time when you might want to go with a darker lure: when the water is dark or it’s dark outside.
If I had to choose one lure, it’d be a Super Spook Jr. in bone color, and if I had a second choice, I’d choose the same lure in a darker color pattern.
Does Lure Confidence Matter?
Although it might not seem like it, confidence in a lure matters, too.
If you’re confident in a lure, you’ll be working it correctly and focusing on what really matters: finding feeding fish.
If you’re not confident in a lure, you’ll probably be switching lures often, even if the real problem is that you’re not in a feeding zone.
Lure color doesn’t matter as much as many people think.
In clear water and light conditions, go with a lure that’s light in color.
If the water is very murky or you’re fishing before or after the sun is up, then go with a lure that’s darker in color.
My favorite topwater is the Super Spook Jr. in bone color, and you can get it from our shop here.
