Ain't one of you dumb booties said beetle spins.
Another vote for a watermelon senko...
I've caught the most bass on 6" plastic worm, but I'd pick a 4" Rapala if I only had one lure because it's more fun to catch them up top.
This. Don't care what color.
Back in the 1950's and 60's fishing in the farm pond, my Pops used to kill bass with a Lazy Ike. The bass just couldn't leave it alone.
There's a reason for that.
Old school Hula-Popper!
Weightless black power lizard! I've made some cash on that bait!!!!!
I did a fair amount of conventional fishing before I began fly fishing (and with a couple kids in tow, I am back to do some conventional fishing again)...
I always thought, and still think that color is way over-rated... Those different colors catch a lot more fisherman than they do fish... In dark or stained water I like darker baits, and in clear water, I like lighter colored baits... And fly or conventional, I have always preferred more natural colors.
I do believe in fishing with what you have confidence in though... If you know you are going to catch fish, you probably will... When you are doubtful or hesitant about a bait, you probably will not catch fish (or at least not as many). If you think/know that orange with purple spots is the best color, it probably is for you that day.... My feeling is, you tend to fish better and with more patience when you are confident.
I caught an awful lot of black bass, as well as peacock bass on that black & silver Banjo Minnow in fresh water... I also caught land-locked tarpon and snook... I fished that thing slow, and rolled it over logs and stumps, and I fished it fast as a reaction bait...
I gave up my Banjo Minnows when I discovered Senkos.
Your point on color is probably right although I have about 60 of the various colors Senkos come in, just in case.
I believe size is a more important variable than color.
Confidence is all important.
