Among those, I think Michael Nix phrased it best: "Regardless of the time of year or location, the best lure color is the one that matches the predominant food source for the given place and time. Thus, no one color is always the best to use. The question to be answered does not reference what our favorite color may be. The question asks which lure color is the best. Naturally, the answer will depend upon a myriad of factors, but the selection will always boil down to matching the predominant food source for a given place and time. The job in lure color selection, then, is to determine what that food source is!!!"
