Blue Herring Colors

3 posts in this topic

What would be suggested for the colors on a Blue Herring for bass? I see there is both a green back and a black/charcoal back is there a correct combo for this?

Thanks,

I seem to remember that Davy Hite won a tournament last year at a Ga lake noted for blueback herring. He used a brown jig which he said duplicated their brownish coloration. Other successful competitors used topwater pencil poppers with blue metallic backs. So watcha gonna do? I think I'd try blue shoulder shading and overshoot the top of the back with med dark brown or raw umber. I bet you'll find the size of the bait is just as important as getting the color right.
