Each fishing location will be different; even each trip to the same area might have different results so there isn’t really a “Best” color to use when fishing. One color may work better one time but not as well the next time you fish. So, when selecting a lure color take a look at your surrounds (landscape and wildlife) to determine the color of lure to use. If the water is dark and murky (or stained) use bright and/or fluorescent colors that can draw the fish’s attention to the lure. If the water is clear, look around if the area and use colors which blend with the surrounds. If the area is rocky use a brown, tan, or a similar color. If there is grass and weeds then use more of the green colors. Each location will be different so try a good range of colors. Thank you for your question.

I throw watermelon pumpkin in clear water, and black/blue in stained water. Both work very well. In early spring, I throw the black/blue in clear water as well with good results.

If you match the hatch you will catch fish with this jig I use green pumpkin in all water clear or stained. The green color matches every thing the bass see's every day.

depending on what color your foliage is, green foliage then go with a green skirt. olive is ideal for playing hide and seek with bass if you have some sort of noise maker on it

This jig is meant to mimic a crawfish so the best color would be the one that mimics the color of your local craws. I like the black / brown spice (#21) and the emerald / brown spice (#22) in clear water. For stained I like them a bit flashier: black / red (#13) or watermelon / red (#14).
