Gotta try this combo
« on: 05/27/18 09:38 UTC »
As a rule I like chartreuse tails on things, but this spring I have begun using more of the chartreuse as a back color in shad-like baits. I was doing some project stuff this morning trying to beat the 95 degrees forecast for today and had a couple cups of plastic still hot, one being chartreuse, so I heated up some re-melt  bluegill-clear and injected this 1 1/2" minnow bait with a forked tail using the chartreuse as the back color. The picture shows the baits belly up.

Half of these will go into a chartreuse favored jar of Gulp juice and the remaining will see a jig as is.

The chartreuse is Essential straight up from the bucket, stabilizer, uv enhancer, a couple drips of green x2, a few drops of Bears fluorescent gren and then finished with X2 chartreuse and a wad of blue hi lite. The clear is Essential, stabilizer, uv enhancer, and a mixture of equal parts of purple, green, blue and copper glitters along with two 2 inch pieces of purple cracker plastic.

There's plenty of flash in this combination and its easy on the eyes too. I'm thinking it'll get notice by the local crappizoids.
