The bottom picture looks like chartreuse watermelon, an MF color #56. Here's a bait done in the color but keep in mind its a small bait. A little larger bait may show up more like the ones in that picture of yours. I didn't have super good light for the picture.

This bait probably is less than a great example. Its one of a mess that I did using MF colorants several years ago that I keep on hand for color comparisons and its seen better days. I need to shoot up the whole series of MF colors again so they're nice and clear.

Not sure if this helps but here is a tube I poured in MF chartreuse pumpkin with red flake. Same bait, taken at the same time just different natural light.

Rucker that very top bait is definitely really similar to what I put together.  I used 8 oz plastisol 6 Drops of Watermelon X2  1/8 .40 Black and 1/8 twice of .015  Fire Red.  I really like how it turns out.

This was a trial run and I’m guessing that I threw away what I had scratched down. If I recall it would have been 1/2c essential plastic; half a pinch of .15 fire red glitter; and around 15 drops of MF chartreuse pumpkin.
