Water Color Affects Fishing Success

Posted by Buck Perry on 4/5/2017 to fishing guide

As fishermen, we will find that water color has a greater effect on the degree of our fishing success, or failure than any other water condition.

Most fishermen have the wrong idea about "good-looking" water. They see a crystal clear lake and the reaction is "Oh boy! Look at that beautiful fishing water." Nothing could be more wrong.

What is a spoonplug?

Fishing tackle has one purpose. To find fish and to catch them. The correct tackle enables us to catch more and bigger fish, whether it's a largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, walleye, muskie, pike, striper, white bass, salmon, or other favorite.

Spoonplugs are lures (tools) specifically designed to find productive structure, locate fish, and make them strike. The Spoonplug is unique in many ways.

You and I must use the features (structure, breaks, breaklines, deep water) in a lake reservoir, pond, stream, etc.) as our guide to where the fish will be. These features are to be used at all times, regardless of the weather, season, lake type, or mood of the fish.
