    Hi all,

    I'm thinking of purchasing some ultimate fishing vertilight jigheads, but I'm not sure what colours to get. I generally use natural coloured lures so should I be using colours that match the lure or brighter colours that stand out and make a target for the fish?

    Any help is much appreciated,

    Hugo.

    I haven't seen those Hugo but you could try some coloured ones out? If in doubt though, play it safe.

    Sometimes I like to have contrast on the jig head versus the body. Some contrasting combinations work very well on my marks.

    I've recently noticed that using jigheads that match the softies vastly increases catches in my area. It's an interesting topic, I'll be following this thread. :)

    I must admit to liking a colour contrast too between head and body. I also like big eyes, and stick the 3-D ones on some jig heads.

    I caught well on a Flouro yellow one that came with a pack of soft lures until I eventually lost it. I've been meaning to try some again to see if it makes a difference. I wondered if it was a induced take kind of thing going?

    Thanks for the advise guys, I think I'll get a couple of black/natural coloured ones and some chartreuse or red ones.
