I hear everywhere on this board and other places that you should match the hatch when fishing lures, and that is my question. I live in CT and the bait along the shore right now is bunker/pogies/menhaden. I also use eels alot. Now when I'm buying lures/plugs and they offer a bunker pattern, is that the one I should get? If this is the case all the plugs in my bag should be bunker and/or eel patterned, does this make sense to anyone? Is saying match the hatch referring only to relative size and behavior of the bait that is out there and not as much about the color? What would the benefits of trying colors other than the natural color of bait be? Now my plug bag is definately mixed, I use darker colors/black at night and brighter whites and blues during the day, this question just kind of dawned on me while thinking of "match the hatch" and browsing BPS catalog recently, what are your guys' thoughts?
