Default Dale Hollow Baits

I thought we should start a thread about baits and colors that we should bring with us to Dale Hollow.

I'll start by posting an article by Stephen Headrick in which he talks about jig colors during the different moon phases.

Headrick’s study of crawfish – the smallie’s favorite food – taught him that the little crustaceans also change colors in sync with moon phases. “During the period of the first-quarter moon,” he said, “crawfish have a reddish tint to them. That’s when I throw a black and red jig with a red plastic chunk trailer. As the moon goes into full, crawfish take on a greenish tint, and I’ll go to a black and green or olive-green jig with an avocado or green plastic chunk.”

Headrick always tries to match is baits with the natural forage. His penchant for changing colors continues as the moon completes its cycle.

"As the moon goes out of full and into the third quarter, I like a black and blue jig with a blue chunk or a black chunk with blue glitter,” Headrick continued. “For the new moon, the crawdads are at their darkest. That’s when I use a black or dark brown hair jig with a black or brown plastic chunk.”

Here's a link to the source of the information.
