What Color Little John

Post by Stratos » Tue Mar 29, 2011 3:21 pm

I fish a slightly brown colored lake in Missouri. I am usually in 10 to 12 feet of water throwing at the bank. The structure consists mainly of Docks. I have read alot about the "Little Johns", but at the price they are I want to try one first before I buy any more. What is your go to color, or what should I use for the conditions I am fishing in.

Thank you

I'd go with a shad type color. Old Glory is nice. So is Spooky Shad.

Citrus shad has worked wonders for me in the dingy lakes we have in NE Ohio.

Have one in Nasty Shad color. Has not produced for me yet but have not really given it a fair chance since I really have not fished with it that much. Use it in a deep clear lake.

Ended up getting the Citrus Shad. Wow, paired with the DC 704 glass, the fish never stood a chance. Thank you.
