How many times have you been fishing for Walleye and the only thing you caught on the lake that day was a buzz? It happens to most of us. Well if you're going to be on the lake this week or weekend, you might want to check out this study from Dr. Suzanne Gray who is an associate professor of aquatic physiological ecology at Ohio State University. The research they did was to find which color lures walleye prefer in different water conditions, and to take a closer look at how fish are responding to human-driven environmental shifts.
According to Bring Me The News, the data in the study revealed that walleye preferred predominately white lures in clear water conditions, yellow or gold lures in sedimentary turbid conditions and black lures in algae bloom conditions. Using white, gold, black and purple lures, researchers found the walleye showed no preference in clear water, a preference for gold lures in sedimentary turbid conditions and a preference for black lures in algae conditions.
