I've with the majority as well. Don't like to get married to one color. I always have several rods rigged with different colors, but gold, chartreuse, and orange, are always among them. I'm using way more plastic these days which allows for quick color switches. Also, several of the jig heads will be glow colors.

Yellow or chartreuse was the color today. If it wasn't small and yellow it didn't get any.

I've had most of my success with chartreuse and variations of it (ie. black/chart). However, I switch up for the circumstances.
