    Default Use the color blue?

    Since some of us now turn to making rather than using/losing tackle, has anyone had very good luck using blue lures for kokanee? Blue is supposed to be visible deeper than red, so I was just wondering if it might be a good color to try next year. Thoughts or experience?

    I know of a few people that have used blue and orange spinners. I have had some success with purple. It is always worth a try.

    It has its days. I have better luck with it mid summer on, probably because I am going deeper with it. Black and blue combo and pink and blue combo is what I like to run. Blue and chartreuse can also get hot.

    I have had some luck with Kokabow Dodger in "Blue Back". It looks a little like a kokanee. It is not my favorite, but I have caught fish on it.

    My go to color has been the color blue... black is also a great choice. Darker colors have more contrast down deep. Of course with kokanee some days you end up using every color in the tackle box...
