    What is the best color of worm to use in a Carolina/ Texas rig? I do most of my fishing at Truman Lake/ Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri and the water is almost always murky.

      You could ask ten different pros and get ten different answers. Most of it is based on personal experience and the fish in every body of water are different. However, since you do say that the water is generally murky, your best bet would be a darker color: Junebug, black, Tequila Sunrise, and so on. If those fail to produce try something different that the fish may not be used to, say maybe pink or yellow.

        I'm not an expert but around here most go with red, and as insurance use some beads or something that makes a 'clacking' sound. I just usually use a worm with a flat tail that wiggles and makes a vibration.

              In my experience, color matters more to the fisherman than the fish (to an extent). Everyone has a preferred color and that color generates confidence and belief in your presentation. When you believe in what you are doing and the lure you are using, you will be more diligent and patient working the lure and covering water. For the record, my favorite is basic purple.

                      Only time will tell but probably not. 'Performance' is subjective. I don't give a rat's ass about elk hunting so the 6.5 Creedmoor is more than adequate...

                      Between Winchester and Browning and others, 40 rifles are chambered for the 6.8 Western. Question is, will the 6.8 surpass the 6.5 CM in popularity...

                      jimbo, compare the 6.8mm Western to the .270 Wby Mag. ....or the .270 WSM.

                      6.8mm = .277"
