    I fished yesterday at Piney Point...tried 3 inch fat Sam mullet on jighead- no thanks, 4 inch Diesel minnow ZMan Opening Night on a 1/4 oz jighead- no thanks- XR10 Blue Silver and a bunker color XR10 XRap caught 16 stripers- nothing else had a hit...fishing is pretty basic- match the hatch...

    Except for this inconvenient truth...nothing that swims in nature is chartreuse.

    I stand corrected!

    But I bet Pickerels and LM and SM Bass have never seen a Bull Dorado.

    My most versatile lure is a 4" gulp mullet in chartreuse. Catches everything in the bay.

    Rapala Shad-Rap by far is my most versatile (baby bass color). I caught Stripers and blues in the bay with it.. went home to Minnesota and this thing outperformed everything else for both SM Bass, Walleyes (best eating fish ever), and even hooked a Northern on it. Then took it back to the bay (following year) and hooked up some Perch and sripers in the bay again.. seems no matter what water I toss this into, it comes up with fish.
    I have found that the rattles in lures will scare some freshwater fish like Walleyes, they wouldn't touch any rattle trap I tossed in.. but I toss this in with no rattle and they ate it up.

    We've had an interesting variety of lures mentioned.

    Once again, I think we've seen that your confidence in a lure has much to do with its success.

    Thanks to all for the replies.
