Color Factoring Smallmouth Bass Video: James Lindner and Jeremy Smith explain how they decide when to use a more natural realistic color pattern and when brighter paint jobs are better.
The color of your lure is an important consideration for most anglers.

Rapala offers a very big spectrum of patterns and colors available for hard baits and VMC jigs.
Some anglers say that color doesn’t matter, but we believe in the importance of baits colors and lure patterns for catching more smallmouth bass. You’ve probably experienced at one time or another, fishing with a friend, and one of you is getting more bites by simply switching to a different colored lure.
