    Yezzz sir!!! That color has been awesome for me this year. This method has been my favorite and goto for a couple years now, but the goby method is working its way up my fav. list. If you can wiggle it through the rocks without getting hung up alot (hard to do, trust me, learned the hard way) its just as, or maybe more effective than the dinger

    Surface lures just seem to give me a stiffy. Havent had much luck so far this season..... but when its on, oh.... is it ON.

    other than that a double tail with a 1/4 oz and just swim it along.

    5" Senko, watermelon, rigged Texas style on a 3/0 Gamakatsu hook w/ no weight. Cast it around lily pads, weeds, docks let it settle and watch for that tell tale twitch in the line.

    Before I became a steelhead addict my favorite lures were the black n blue flake hula grub with a black weedless jighead I cant remember the brand. The f-9 original minnow also accounted for many many LM bass.

    Smallies in Canada seem to like a vintage black, silver scale flatfish, U 20 size.... My son kills them with a smaller size modern flatfish yellow with orange spots.

    Back when I Bass fished, I could make a spinner bait do anything, and made my own skirts, changed blades etc. and caught most of my fish on some sort of spinner. But my FAVORITE would have to be a black Jitterstick. I have had fish come 3 feet out of the water on those things. NOTHING can compare to topwater fishing when it comes to Bass
