Due to the amount of silt on our lake, I always feel more confident if I am using a light, off white, bait.
Whether that makes it the "best" I know not. But if it gives me more confidence, it's the best for me.

I'm the same as everyone else, the best colour bait is the one that catches you the fish.

For years I have caught most of my fish on food source boilies.
New Concepts Mariner Mix, Nutrabaits Big Fish Mix, Enervite, Trigga, Rod Hutchinson KMG all brown, Bait Feed co Smokey Mackeral and Smokey Bacon were a red colour.

It can also be water specific....most of my fish at my syndicate have come on pink hookbaits....

The colours i have least confidence in is white for some reason....but when you get confident in a bait you will use it more and through law of averages you will catch more on that bait..... which probably has nothing to do with its colour and just being fished effectively....

Itís like me using yellow pop ups all year and saying I only ever catch on yellow. Donít worry about colour worry more about location. If you put a white pink or brown bait in the right place at the right time theyíll have it 👍🏻

I've caught most on reddish brown baits, because that's what colour my baits are. Years ago I'd caught mostly on red baits because.....that's what colour my baits were. It's unswerable, nobody can give you a difinitive answer because there isn't one.

Depends if you are talking about ready made boilies or DIY ones. Ready mades obviously come in whatever the manufacturer makes them in, whereas you can make your own boilies whatever colour you want.

Personally, I buy ready made boilies. I'm more interested in getting a good quality using good ingredients from a reputable manufacturer, irrespective of what the colour is. Even hookbaits, I just go with what colour they are made in and change around until you find the winner!!

If you're making your own, look at what colour baits are working on your water.

The only time really I think about colour is when a water has a duck/coot problem, then I tend to shy away from brightly coloured boilies.

As IP100 says, an impossible question to answer.

If there was a best colour all baits would be that colour. It's an unanswerable question
