I'm not sure if you remember me or not but I met you in the parking lot at Nelson's Bait & tackle in Cape Cod last September. I was there with DaveC, Frank M and SRF trying to highjack a few handfulls of your needlefish just as they were walking in the door
Anyway, I'd have to say white & yellow during the day. Although, chartreuse was pretty hot last fall around these parts

I go with yellow during the day, but have found that nothing compares with BLACK & PURPLE in the evening. Black & purple at night is about as sure as it gets no matter what the cloud cover or moon phase.
But hey: this is coming from a bait slinger!
For big swimmin plugs/poppers I do alot of chrome & Black or Yellow during the day..olive for needles.
Nighttime for me is Black or Black
Plastics we go with a brown or black topped silver/mullet looking thing that works very well.. kinda half fish/half curlytail.
Like the rest of the guys, I am a real fan of your line.. also read a real good article about you and your buddy in the Fall in "On the Water".
My friend and I fish up your way every June for a few days on our way up to Monomoy (Do Beavertail, Point Judith, couple other spots)... always seem to bump into Iron Mike or somebody I've read about or heard about each time we stumble into Saltwater Edge to buy the stuff we left behind and pick up a years worth of bucktail (they do have the best bucktail on earth).
So welcome A-barn.. good to see your post and I hope you keep crankin out those Habs..they've helped me make an awful lot of stripers very unhappy over the years..
