Is Your Lure Changing Color Underwater (And Spooking Fish)?
Ever heard of an underwater lure color shift?
Imagine you’re about to bite into a hamburger and it changes from brown to neon orange as you pick it up…
What would you do?
Throw it away!
Burgers aren’t supposed to change colors…
But if you fish with artificial lures and you’ve ever seen a fish suddenly turn away from your lure, that’s probably what the fish was experiencing.
See, in the water, certain lure colors can undergo color shifts.
This can spook off the fish off (meaning you don’t catch as many fish as you could).
Most experts recommend just a few lure colors, but when you go into a tackle store you see aisles and aisles of different color lures.
This is where the old saying, “Fishing lures catch fishermen not fish,” comes into play.
All of these options and colors are to get us buying more and more lures, not to help us catch more fish.
So I created this video to share with you exactly what an underwater lure color shift is, what lure colors experts recommend, and how you can avoid wasting your money on lures that just don’t work.

Is This The Best Lure Color? [VIDEO]
Before I learned how to actually catch fish, I was guilty of buying all sorts of crazy-looking lures that caught my eye in the tackle store, not realizing that many of them were undergoing a color shift in the water and actually causing me to not catch fish.
Do you do that, too?
These lures are made to catch fishermen, but if you want to catch fish, one of your best options is to stick with a lure that’s white with some gold and silver flash, like the Slam Shady.
It doesn’t undergo a color shift and is the same color as most baitfish your target species is looking for.
