What color is the best spinner plumage for perch?

Based on the video context provided, when fishing for perch, it is recommended to use a spinnerbait with a yellow perch or fire tiger skirt. These colors mimic the appearance of perch, which is a common forage for bass. Additionally, using a gold blade can also be effective, as many panfish species, including perch, have a goldish tone to them.

It's important to consider the water clarity as well. In clear water, you'll want to use a lighter and more translucent skirt to prevent the bass from getting a good look at it. In this case, a skirt with some green pumpkin and blue, with a touch of yellow and orange, can be a good choice. As for the blade color, silver blades are recommended for clear water as they provide more flash.

However, if the water is dirty or muddy, you'll want to use darker and more vibrant colors to increase visibility. In this case, a spinnerbait with a darker skirt and a gold blade can be effective.

Please note that the information provided is based on the video context and my knowledge as a bass fishing guide. If you have any specific questions or need further clarification, feel free to ask.

Advanced Spinnerbait Fishing | Bass Fishing by Bass Fishing Tips & Techniques by BassResource That's sort of a mix between the two, they put off enough vibration that the Bass can hone in on it but yet they don't slow the bait down, there's not a whole lot of drag on it so I can fish it really fast without the bait turning on its side. So I really like it, it's very versatile. I can fish it very slow, very fast and I don't have to change baits. As for blade color, primarily there's three different types you can choose from, there's a plethora of colors you can pick between but usually there's gold, there's silver and then there's some painted blades, you can get like white or chartreuse. Typically what you want to do for color choice is with gold blades you want to fish those on cloudy days or when the lake is murky. Silver color blades are really good for bright sunny days and when the water's really clear, that's when you want that nice, bright flash or when the bass are feeding on bait fish, that sort of thing. You'll get that silver flash that the bait fish give off. Typically what I like to do is fish with the gold blades, even when it's sunny out. Typically the bass will smack that thing, mainly because in my neck of the woods where I'm fishing the bass primarily feed on Perch and that gold color tends to be what they focus on. Now you'll see that most of these baits, they have tandem blades on it but there's also a single blade bait.
