Welcome to American Bass Anglers (888)203-6222 Fish On! : Selecting The Best Lure Colors by COLOURlovers One of the more colorful things that sometimes gets overlooked by many of us city folk, who only see nature and bodies of water when there is a popular video on YouTube of someone crashing their personal watercraft, are the carefully crafted colors of fishing lures. Special care is taken in the color selection by lure makers, as it is a very important part in catching the right fish in the right conditions. Most fish, except for some of those in the deepest of darkest of oceans, where there is no light at all, can see colors, some even have four to five different cones making their ability to see color even greater than our own.

In order to select the best lure color palette there are a few things that need to be considered, such as: Water depth and clarity, season, and the time of day.

C’est indéniablement un des leurres souples les plus connus au monde, sa réputation est née au Japon où les pêcheurs de black bass louent ses qualités et saluent ses performances depuis de nombreuses années.

09/2012 We can catch many Barramundis in July around here. We can catch many Barramundis after the second half of October. But we can't catch many Barramundis in September around here every year.

On Saturday I was itching to get out and test my new Daiwa Zillion Type-R on a decent fish, with all the rain we’ve had up here in the last week I opted to head up to the freshwater to try my luck.

There was a couple of lads fishing in a back eddy who I briefly spoke to and they mentioned that they might head up to Kinchant dam for a look.
