Favorite crankbait and bucktail colors

Recommended Posts

if you guys could please take a quick moment to let me know what is your favorite crankbait and bucktail colors. the only reason i am asking is b/c i am making 150 musky crankbaits and some musky/pike bucktails and want to make sure i have some good colors.

for me, my favorites are-

crankbait- perch/ black perch color.

bucktails- gold blades and brown & yellow tail.

thanks for your time. zachary baker.

firetiger :lol:

i like black perch as you do but I'm very partial to chartruse, probably because I do well for all esox with it. for cranks I also like the more natural colors with the plain muted white sides/belly and green on top.

also what ever color that greenish gold deep invader is called :lol: shhh :lipssealed:
