My #1 is Wonderbread....then gold...then orange/chartreuse. After that it's close my eyes and point.  ;)

Gold, pink and chartreuse would be my top choices for about anywhere I fish, especially if it is stained water.

I think you can see from the replies it doesn't really matter to much what color you use, they all catch fish. Right size, right place, right depth, right bait your going to catch fish regardless of color. Most fish will "feel" (lateral line) your lure before they see it, concentrate on presentation  not so much on color.

Perch are canabalistic. You want at least one colored like a perch.

Pink, Black and Gold are my go to tungstens.  Been using either the white or yellow wonderbreads with some limited success.  More often than not, I seem to fall back to pink and black.

Black, white (classic colors), pink, and orange. You can help contrast the overall presentation by using different colored bait. I like red and white spikes.
