Time Of The Day
The time of the day has a major influence on your lure color presentation.
What you choose to throw can change from dawn, to midday, mid-afternoon, and into dusk.
Also, take into account any overcast conditions or if you are fishing on a bright, sunny day.
A really great rule of thumb is, generally the darker it is outside, the darker your lure presentation should be.
That can be during dawn, dusk, or on heavy overcast days.
For these scenarios, the go-to lure color is our Gold Digger Paddletail lure.
The black base color and gold flakes sprinkled in the lure create a perfect blend of color to trigger strikes in low-light fishing situations.
Believe it or not, a darker color lure will help your presentation stand out in low-light conditions.
Water clarity varies on a few different factors associated with the tides and wind patterns.
Typically, on the lower ends of the tide, the water is a bit muddier and churned up.
Similarly, grass and debris get picked up and moved out with outgoing tides.
In these scenarios, having a darker lure like the Gold Digger will help your presentation stand out.
Once the water does turn over and cleaner water moves into the area, that is when you want to turn to lighter colored lures.
The F.R.E.D. (Fooling Redfish Every Day) Paddletail is a light pink lure with a slight flash from silver flecks.
F.R.E.D. looks extremely natural in clear water and is a perfect choice for in-between tide stages when the water is turning over.
Depth/Color Of The Bottom
As you go deeper into the water, less light is able to reach the bottom.
Going back to the concept mentioned above, deeper water calls for darker lure presentations.
If the water is a bit shallow and sandy on the bottom, there is simply nothing better than the Slam Shady 2.0
The Slam Shady 2.0 looks extremely natural on the shallow flats and is a perfect lure choice for most any fishing scenario but especially in shallow water on sandy flats.
