View Full Version : Color Combinations - Egg Patterns
12-07-2008, 03:31 PM
So it's snowing and the wood stove is blazing, perfect quality vice time opportunity. I've tied dozens of combination McFly Foam egg patterns this weekend (clowns, etc.) - now I'm out of new, effective, ideas.
Looking for advice on what color combinations have worked the best for winter steelhead and salmon. I've got about every color foam that is out there. In addition to possbile combinations, also curious about solid colors (no spots or clown patterns). Any favorites?
Appreciate the advice.

chartreuse, chartreuse and dark orange, and pink have worked the best in the winter for me.

McCheese is a always a safe bet. I've been using the egg veil stuff too lately. the stuff looks great underwater.

orange and O'cheese, pink and cream or o'cheese oh and just plain blue
I have more combo's that I do fairly well on, those are my top producers during the colder month's, and during early spring. The blue I stumbled oon while fishing the Betsie one spring. was at the tackle shop in benzie, and seen it. Figured I didn't have it, and would try some. Well, to keep a long story short, I never put on a another color. It was THE color to use for about 4 day's in a row.

It seems every so often I hear some good things about blue/light blue eggs working for winter steel, but no matter how many times I try them I still have not had any success and am starting to become an unbeliever in that pattern, however every once in a while, I here a few comments....So I still have to keep a small line-up of them, and continue to try them...when my go too's arn't producing!
Go too's, light pink's and pale oranges seem to be the best for me..
