Look to bright spinnerbaits with a big single colorado blade and fish in tight to cover banging it off stumps,  longs,  rocks and anything else you can find.  Another great lure would be jig black,  black/chartruese, black/red or black/purple. You want a color that will sillouette in the dark colored water and pitch or flip the jig tight to the cover again.  When the water is muddy the fish will pull tight to the cover and hunt with their lateral line more than with thier site.  so use rattles in the jigs and use other lures that put off a vibration so the fish can locate and eat your offering.

i do same things as not muddy, except colors, i still look for shad activity and if they are main river, mouths or back in creeks, then i match size, but with muddy water i do what QM said, i normally use a small white spinnerbait with willows, now i will use small chart spinnerbait with colorado, also small chart/blue cranks such as bandit 100’s. If im going to flip i use a black/blue or red shad sweet beaver. if its muddy ill switch from small buzzbait to a pop-r to allow them to hone in on it easier.

My favorite lure for fishing muddy water is a chart/blue back shallow diving crankbait. You need to fish really close to shore and bang it off of anything you can find.

Me too. I like Cranks banging off cover under the water. I will usually use a black color for muddy water. Muddy is hard for me to fish too. I like Black water, or clear.

My favorite muddy water lure is a $1.00 blue head, white skirt 1 willow 1 Colorado blade spinnerbait from walmart. When the water is muddy, that is what I throw.

In dirty water I like to fish two colors of 7” & 10” Original PowerBait Worms. Black, and Black Blue flake worms on a Texas rig seem to do the trick in muddy water. Sometimes in dirty water I have to put the worm right in their face to get a bite. A top water bait I have used in the same conditions is a Black Gambler Cane Toad.

Hope you catch your biggest bass ever on your next fishing trip.

Yes. Pop R is a great lure to use in muddy water. It throws and spits water everywhere.

Use a double or triple blade buzzbait. The more commotion the easier the bass will find your lure. I would think the black spook wouldn’t make enough commotion for the bass to locate it in muddy water, but if you find some partially stained water it should work.
