I was looking through my tackle trays and was amazed at how many different colors of artificial baits i have collected over the years. It seems though no matter how many different colors i carry with me, i have a few basic combinations i always end up using. When targeting redfish and trout, what are your favorite colors and how does the weather (cloudy/sunny) factor in.

Dragging stretches,red/white has always been productive but the blue/silver has really been good to me for reds(prior to this past spring) Top water plugs,pins minnows work well for trout and reds in green/silver. I think the silver belly has been the key no matter what gets casted or trolled around due to the flashyness(is that a word?)

Thanks for the information, i personally have had luck with white/chartreuse, smelt colored, and motor oil colored with flake. I will have to give the dark green/ red flake a try.

I have got most of my recent bull reds in the pass on my jointed blue top, silver bottom stretch. But the last few trips trolling, have not produced. Where did all the bull reds go??? Usually in the December, January months I can slay some bull reds in the pass. But they have been a little scarce for me when I have went out recently.

Summer and clear water------clear or near clear.

Winter and clear to semi-clear--------clear/red metal flake ( the true money color ).:poke

This is trout fishing.Flounder will eat damn near any color.

Lighter colors on bright days, darker days darker colors.

I have a tendency to fish whites, yellows, bright greens on sunny days.

Darker grays, greens on darker or overcast days.

I fish gold and silver any time.

Its all a matter of what you have confidence with.
