釣果に差がつくルアーの色の選び方!魚が認識する色とは? How to choose lure colors correctly!

ルアーの色に重要な「可視光線」とは?

ここでは可視光線を簡単に説明していきます。

水深と海の透明度で考えてみると分かりやすいでしょう。

魚が海の中で見るルアーの見え方は海の色によって変わります。水中で一番長い波長の赤色は水深20m付近でグレー色に見えます。そして、一番短い波長の薄紫は水深50m付近でも見えます。緑、青、紫、薄紫は高い透明度の海なら、そのままの色として見えます。

赤が一番強く、長い波長(620-700NM)

次に、オレンジ、薄紫(400-455NM)

ジギングをする時には「水深」と「海の透明度」によって、ルアー色を選ぶ事が大事です。

晴れた時はシルバーやゴールド色がキラキラしてアピール力が強くなります。曇りの日はやはり紫外線が強いので、蛍光色なルアーが効果的です。

そして、釣り場のベイトフィッシュを確かめる事も重要。ベイトフィッシュと似ているルアーを選び、狙っている魚の習性を知るのも良いですね。

Recently, I realized that there’s a boom in zebra glow jigs in Japan. It was probably started by Majorcraft as their jigs have proven to attract fish of various species both onshore and offshore in countless Youtube videos. This season, many tackle manufacturers have infused zebra glow into their range, also to target Beltfish / Largehead Hairtail. In this article, I’d like to cover other colors and how they appear at different depths of the sea.

Going back to basics, the spectrum consists of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet. Red has the longest wavelength, and violet has the shortest. In the sea, red wavelengths do not penetrate deep because it gets absorbed first. Therefore, if you watch the Youtube video here, you’ll realize how red, orange and yellow jigs work better in shallow water or clear weather conditions:

Deeper areas from 50m or more would mean you’d probably increase the appeal factor with green, blue or violet jigs. Red, orange and yellow jigs appear grey and therefore almost like a silhouette when there isn’t much light in the water. On cloudy days or murky water, these colors would also be less visible to fish, compared to fluorescent colors which will reflect the strong UV rays on cloudy days. On sunny days, reflective colors like silver and gold will also attract fish due to the near-blinding radiance from its movement.

As for the ideal weight, in shallow waters of up to 10 meters, jigs up to 40g should suffice. However, if undercurrents or winds are strong, it’d be advisable to go up 1 or 2 notches – 50g to 80g in order to allow your jig to reach the seabed quickly and attract fish from the seabed up to the surface.

In deep oceans, depending on your target, larger weights of up to 200g will also work for offshore, game or tuna fishing. These of course, can vary by size depending on the type of lure you use. Lastly, don’t forget to match the appearance of bait fish by choosing a lure that resembles them, and consider the feeding habits of your target when you decide to buy lures.
