    See the scottyhover photo above. The purple or blue back chrome sided lure has always been real good in clear water and sunny sky where it gives off alot flash. Back in the 90,s it seems blue and chrome hot n tots where the hot lure on the bay and they still work well. But if it is not sunny enough for them to flash the colored lures may do better. On this site you see purple, gold and hot pink mentioned a lot. In his pic there are several with those colors. No matter what you buy you will always need some different ones.
