It's all about match the hatch.
Your talking about winter bass in the salt.
There are 3 types of bass that all require different types of fishing and tackle. Also the location on where your fishing plays a roll as well.

for spotties - for big hammer baits only.
1. dark colors only at night/befor gray light.
2. day light - match the hatch. red drum/rum, sexy smelt

izors reef - night time its the same colors and day time you want something with reds in it.
red drum/rum, x-mas tree color.
winter time, water is cold. high 50s right now and fish are not moving to chase for food right now.
your going want to fish 5-6" baits on 1-1/2oz - 2oz lead heads due to the tides.
65lb powerpro to 30-40lb top shot.
hope this helps and remember to CPR.

I have fished the Christmas color over and over again with nothing showing for it until HH when I landed a nice spottie on a Christmas tree type color with UV coating about 3 months ago.
Ya it is a good color to use. Thumbs Up
