What's the best color and size for specks, reds, and flounder?

I have had the best luck with the new penny. But I keep 5 or 6 sizes/colors in my box. Sometimes it helps to change it up a little bit.

I've had the most luck with the 3" shrimp and the 5" jerkshad. I've caught fish with most of the colors i've tried, but New Penny has produced the best for me....they work when bumped off the bottom or suspended under a popping cork. I don't fish inshore as much as many of the other guys on here though, so i'm sure others will chime in.

Like any other lure, it really depends on water color and clarity. Muddy silty or stained water you'll need to go darker and larger. Clear water go lighter/brighter.



Up in Escambia, I've had the best luck with new penny and camo jerkshads for redfish, new penny and nuclear chicken for specks, and the molting 3" shrimp for flounder.



Down in the sound, new penny and nuclear chicken jerkshads, nuclear chicken and lime tiger shrimp, and even pearl white shrimp.

If your throw'n a Gulp...Color dont matter! I think they strike it because of the smell. How many times have you seen a bait fish in "Lime Tiger" or Nuclear Chicken" colors?? I never have...but those two colors catch fish!!

Keep Fishin!
