Favorite Dipsy Color

Recommended Posts

With all the choices out there for the color of the dipsys you run, which is/are your favorite/most productive?

I have just started using them and found a pretty good deal on the clear last year. Just curious of which colors are most popular. Thanks in advance for the input.

Some think it makes a difference, personally I don't.

In the Lure Jensen brand I tend to buy the chrome ones with Yellow rings.

A few years back at the Super Salmon Clinic, the Best Chance guys claimed White was best. A few years later I heard them again and they claimed a different color.

Find fish put something in front of them, and they will hit it.

1) White/Crushed Glow Tape (by a long shot for the last 10-12 years)

2) Chrome

3) Metallic Green

Some people use certain colors for port and starboard. I do the same thing, but snubbers instead (red and green).

I usually fish with 4 White/Crushed Glow Tape divers.

My top three colors are...black, black, and black. So for the most part i only run black dipseys. Although i think on some days that the dipsey color may help (especially with cohos), i would rather try to take it out of the equation completely. I do still use chrome and glow dipseys but on a rare occasion. I believe that black dipseys add stealth to a delivery tool rather than an additional attractor. They allow the fish to concentrate on the bait (spoon, flasher/fly, etc) and not on the entire rig.

Metalic Green is my best. They all work but I believe it is the combination along with what you run behind it. Metalic green is my most productive with the flasher fly combo. when I run spoons solid chrome is real productive and when pulling js wonderbread is hands down the winner.

I like the disco mama silver dipseys, but i have several different colors and do well on them all. So, im not sold that it is a big factor.

I like the orange dipsy from the surface down to 40 ft. and then kelly green ,black, and crushed glow white for the deeper presentations.

I've found that blue and green chrome work best for me. I have tried other colors with mixed results. A buddy of mine runs nothing but white wonder bread dipsy's with great success.

I have a few different colors, and chrome. I can't say any are better than others. Just a tool to put the goods in the fish's face.:)

I've tried running two different dipsy colors with the same flasher fly combo and the chartruese dipsy has out produced them all for me. Do you guys usually run mag or #1's??

chrome and green, chrome on the starboard side, green on the port side. The only reason we run more than one color is to keep the correct one on the correct side. If I remember right we've caught the same amount of fish on both. use to run watermelon and firetiger in Dipsy Divers, no reason for that either. Now we run Walker Deeper Divers, not having to fool around with the rings is awesome. Oh yeah, most of the paint has come off of both divers and the fish still don't seem to care.

I run slide divers,#1's and Mags. Depends on how deep the fish are. When im fishing high in the water column i like the slide divers cause i can get away from the boat a bit with the longer leads between the diver and the bait of choice.

My best day in and day out is the metallic purple :no:with a black ring with a white and maroon spin doctor and a bloody nose fly.

I've run both black, and chrome with no significant difference. The fish don't really care IMHO.

I run green on one side and yellow on the other. If I think about it I run all my green flashers and flies on the green dipsey and my mellow yellow and white flies on the yellow one, but that isn't always the case. I'd love to run all the same colors (as the flashers and flies I am running) but quite honestly I haven't got the money.
