I tie my Clousers white and chartreuse, or white and plain green. Both work
great. Mostly I strip, pause, repeat.
Funny Clouser story: My wife and I were fishing for smallmouth on the
Schuykill River a few years ago. I decided to take a break, and stood next
to her while she fished a good stretch. I get bored quickly, and decided to
roll cast my Clouser behind us just to give me something to do. I caught
about 4 smallmouth doing that....LOL!!!! No retrieve was used, just roll cast
and repeat. That drove my wife crazy BTW
Soooo....I say vary it up a bit, and see what works at that moment.
