January 28, 2011As a rule of thumb I use dark color lures on cloudy days and bright colors on sunny days.

January 31, 2011I have followed this rule for years and seems to work for me. I have experimented on a cloudy day and was catching with dark colors and just a few hits on the bright ones so the rule works.
June 23, 2011also I have noticed that certain dark shades of color work better than others on cloudy days whereas when it`s bright out color shade doesn`t seem to matter as much.
September 14, 2012moving this one up
September 15, 2012thats my general rule also.
i read a magazine artical once on how the lures change colors as they go deeper. it wasnt too long ago so i maight still have it.
ill go thru my "bathroom library" today and see if i can find it.
September 15, 2012I read an article about that also. I wish I could remember more about it but it was very interesting. The deeper the water certain colors just seem to disappear and are not as visible as others. It had something about the longer light rays that penetrated the water. I pr4obably still have it but I would have to go through about 200 magazines.
September 18, 2012Thats interesting guys. I hope one of you can fing that and share, I`d be curious to know.
