A lure that is tried and true is the purple night crawler with a white stripe. It definitely brings in the monster bass. Depending on what time of year it is, color is normally a factor when choosing a lure. In the spring, bright colors tend to perform better. But as the summer fishing season moves into the later months, darker colors are the more effective choice. However, the purple night crawler with a white stripe works well all through the summer fishing season.
Don’t get me wrong, there are many lures out there that work great in our quest to land the big one. I always try to use something new. You never know what will be the next great lure. Depending on many factors (environment, time of year…) topwater, deep divers, swimbait, buzzbait… all have a time and place when they will be effective.
There are many lures out there that are made for bass fishing that look great, but are more show than go. But the purple night crawler with a white stripe is a great lure that seems to have been put in the back of the tackle box. Seasoned anglers know this. So maybe the next time you are going for the monster bass, you should remember to pull out one of the best bass lures ever, the purple night crawler with a white stripe. And don’t forget to bring along your best female fishing partner….A net.
