Top water bass baits
Topwater color should match in a general way that of the dominate forage in your lake. But the color should more closely match than of baitfish that bottom-dwelling creatures. Therefore, a silver topwater would tend to be a better choice than a brown one. However, at night , use a black topwater, since black is the color that stands out most dramatically against the night sky to a bass looking upward. Chrome is an excellent choice in many reservoirs because it matches the colors of many baitfish, including alewives and shad. Sometimes a bright secondary color such as red or orange adds to the productivity of the lure. Smallmouth often prefer outrageously colored topwaters, including chartreuse and orange.
