I mix up some wild color combos - seems each year one really is hot.
Not sure why but it often is only hot that season.
Chartruese parachute with a bright yellow shad was hot in 2005.
2006 - White and white. Basic but caught very well.
2007 - Chart with a blue back / clear sparkle shad.
2008- Chart / white or white / chart. They like the two colors mixed.
2009 - white with a purple sparkle shad or chart with a pearl shad.
White mylar flash and glow green shad.
2010 - Few fish to find any pattern - sparkle parachutes did best. Pearl shads ended up on a lot of my rigs but green glow got a few as well.
What could be more mundane than dying of old age or of natural causes when there is death by misadventure to be pursued ? Skip
