Worm Colors

I am looking at getting my worm assortment back up to a good level and I am wondering what colors would be best for a good Table Rock assortment?

Gary, this assortment is pretty much what I use

Dropshot

4 inch chomper watermellon candy early morning

4 inch purple/brown laminate ;)

4 inch sand high sunshine

4 inch plumb sunshine ;)

Go to worm is either the purple/brown chompers or the purple/brown Yamamoto

Big Worms Texas Rig

Watermellon Candy

Green Pumpkin

Tequela Sunrise ;)

Red

Black

Drag and Shakyhead worms

Watermellon Candy ;)

Green Pumpkin

June Bug ;)

Chompers Shakeyhed Brown/Purple Lam. ;)

Early in the year, say Last of March thru Early May, the Junebug is a SM Killer. The least little bit of sunshine makes this worm just jump at the fish. Similar in flash to the Watermellon Candy, but a bit darker body. I believe it is just enough different to get an extra bite or two a day. Of course I use it in the Fish Dr. Form.

Lots of my friends and posters here still use watermellonseed. For me the Watermellon Candy kind of surpassed it. The seed is a bit more suttle, and still a great worm. I use the color in a 4 inch grub, but have not got it in a worm.

I love the action of the Yamamoto stuff, but have reached the end of the line with them, as trailers or worms. Just to much salt and to soft. I just cannot afford to use $12 to $15 in soft plastics per day. You basically get 1 or two bites per item and it is destroyed.

Yum has really came on line with some very high quality soft plastics, and Chompers for the money is extremely hard to beat. If Chompers would cutdown the size of their twin tail trailers and make them just a bit longer to be the same as the Yamamoto trailers, but use their own soft plastic formula , I believe there would be no question at all.

That is about all I use.

To the above list I would add electric blue and zoom old purple. I subsitute the old purple for the purple/brown laminate, sometimes it works better, sometimes not. Seems the LM hit the old purple better.

A bottle of chartruese spike it is also a necesatity, I never throw watermelon anything without a touch of spike it.

Thank you all very much for your input. When go for these things the numbers of colors overwhelms you and you have a hard time deciding what to buy. The choices you have given me will make it much easier. Thanks Bill for the indepth coverage of what you use on a daily basis it will really assist me in getting what I need instead of a bunch of stuff I don't need that doesn't work.

Hey Bill. I saw your picture in the latest In-Fisherman. Congrats. Did they approach you or did you go to them for advertising? Either way you are a celebrity. Thats awesome!

Would never solicite any of the publications for advertisment. They are nothing but a pain in the rear. All the major mags call for fishing info, from time to time. That call came last Winter when we were catching all the big Whites.

Since the article I have received about 30 calls, not a one wanting a fishing trip, but all wanting locations and information on how to catch the fish. Have had two calls as late as 11 PM.

I just tell them to go to Ozarkanglers and check out the forum for current info. and say thanks for the call.
