I got the blues
« on: 12/21/17 08:17 UTC »
Blue isn't a color I've paid much attention to but since it was a hot color for me trolling crankbaits this year I thought I would mess around with it a little bit. I have some ideas for this color down the road.

Purplescent is a hot color for walleye. Going to make some forktail and super stingers up with a purple back and chartruse belly. Also wondering about a laminate Icraw in this color? Also a good core shot in the Flippin Zip!

Purples have always good here but I've never fished any blue plastic in spite of having good luck on blue colored cranks through the years.

It's the 3.5" Swim Shad - original tail. I have caught a pile of walleyes and saugers on that bait.

Thanks. The color is transparent with some blue and black glitter in it. A friend of mine from upstate New York asked me to make a color akin to that for him and this was my first try. I'm sure it will need some tweaking to get it where he wants it but it's a start.  I like it but will add more blue the next time I get around to messing with it.

You'll be making baits like that sooner than you think C.

I was hoping to try them out this morning but 18 degrees has me second guessing that plan. LOL
