My first experience using a Cotton Candy plug was during the mid 1980's with the Bomber 16a. Early versions had muted secondary colors over pearl white. It became one of my go-to's. Then it happened, the change, new version with brighter color splashes. NG, my catch ratio dropped, so what did I do, used sand paper attempting to dull it. Didn't work, it wasn't the color it was the new style lure (no screweye). The originals swam with a wider swing, proving little things made the difference.

It’s the same story with blurple and bone. People talk em up, and everyone goes out and buys them. And through sheer numbers, fish get caught, and the legend gets born.

True statement.  I got all sorts of colors.  Delicious to eyes of a fisherman, eventually delicious to a fish at some point.

With this color pattern being "rare" in the wild, it is not the reason why the color pattern works.  Perhaps it's the "lure", as well as, the fisherman? :howdy:
