   Chartreuse they say. Many walleye anglers are hooked on chartreuse, so hooked on chartreuse that 80 to 90 % of their tackle is in the form of chartreuse weather it be fire tiger or clown. Granted that chartreuse can and will produce, but are we missing quality fish by sticking with the norm.
   In the world of bass, catch and release have been so popular that there is constant change in tackle and color. Smart older fish don't seem to be fooled twice by the same trick. I guess if a beer drinkin red neck reeled me in by using an ice cold blue and gold can hooked to my lip and then wouldn't even let me have it before tossing me back in the drink, well I would have to switch to a red and white can. The point is many walleye anglers are performing catch and release. These released fish are ready for something different.
   Working mud lines, dirty or stained waters call for dark baits. The contrast of a dark bait will stand out and have ten fold more visibility to the walleye. One of my favorites colors are a combination of black and red or black and dark green for these waters.  I've often worked a black Northland Tackle rattle jig with Berkley Fish wont let go Carolina Slug in watermelon with great success. An other dark hot producing bait I've found at a sporting goods store in Williston North Dakota has been a custom painted long A bomber. This deep dark purple bait has been great in stained water, low light conditions and night fishing. 
   Clear water conditions may be a good opportunity to run red and white or pinks and yellows. Try adding a spinner to your jigs in order to add the diversity needed to fool the hawgs.
    In any case, it may be to your advantage in hooking larger eyes by experimenting with different color combinations.
