When it comes to late winter and early spring, picking the right color for bass fishing can be challenging. The color Red will always be a top choice. I will explain why it is a great choice. The top choice for bass at that time of the year is crawdads. I will explain what crawdads are doing at that time of the year and the reasoning for the red color! I will also explain the red that is found on Shad that time of the year.
