Bass pros seem to really like white baits. Or at least a combo color like white and chartreuse. That would be for spinners, buzzbaits, flukes, jigs, frogs...just about everything. I have never caught anything on a white bait. Do they work for anyone else?

White works well for me when fishing bass on waters with lots of shad (Texas lakes). Browns and yellows work better for me on lakes like Leech which has lots of crayfish, perch and sunfish. I don't think it's matching the hatch but giving the fish something similar to what they are used to in size and color. If you cast white on lakes like Leech or the Whitefish chain the little northerns will drive you nuts.

Any thing white works well for bass,pike and walleye's here in minnesota ether slow trolling them or casting which ever you gets your goat ..

I have a summer time fishing buddy that still uses his 1952 Heddon white mouse for big pike and bass and does great on it..

DAO is right on. Usually if your watching bass pros on the television they are fishing somewhere in the South. The main forage for bass down there is shad. Threadfin shad and Tennessee shad are some of the more popular.

Also a popular long time phrase for bass anglers is "when in the wind, white is right." I don't know what it is but it seems to have some truth. 95% of the time I am using any color other than white if I'm fishing in Minnesota, Green pumpkin, watermelon, black, and black and blue, or brown tend to be my favorites. Every now and then I'll throw chartreuse or white. But when the conditions are right they can really whack 'em!

Happy Fishing!!

Even if most of the TV tourneys are on Southern lakes, they do sell white baits in all the stores up here; from the big chains to the little guys like Joe's in St. Paul. That "White in Wind" thing is interesting. I'm going to try to remember that one.

I used white sassy shad almost exclusively this spring on Pool 2. I tried darker colors but white produced the most by far. All the largest walleye came on white.

Last season I used more gold and black or black pearl and did well but I caught more smallies. This year with white it was alot more walleye. Not sure if there is a true relationship there but the white did prove itself as a winner.

I ended up picking white to start with becuase it showed up better in the early spring water when it was a churned up and muddy. I wanted to give the fish something they could see a little. Always produced something for me.

I throw three different Rapala X-Rap's all season and by far the white underbelly one with just a spot of red under the gills caught more fish. The others were orange or green on the underside.

Ironically though.. I bought a orange bottom joined shad rap the beginning of August and have caught a ton of decent Pike.



Even a BAD day of fishing is better than a good day of work; paydays excluded!

When fished tournaments 1 of other guys said. "I don't care what color spinnerbait you use as long as it's white." We felt they seemed like shiner to the fish.

I've had pretty good luck casting a spinner bait with a white grub along the edge of lilly pads and weeds.
