Default Best Jig and Lure Colors

Hoping to use my flytying skills and maybe tie up a few homemade ice jigs after seeing fishingals jig. Picked up some heads yesterday, but wanted to see what you all feel are some of the best colors on the lures you use in the ice. Most of what I see right now is pink or white...I know I've had good luck with a white and pink head ratfinke. What are your best go to colors?

For trout through the ice (and crappie when I can find them) my 3 all time favorites are 1/80th oz marabou jigs in these color combinations. You can use them up to 1/8th oz.,but most of the time smaller is better, especially for trout--

Flo. red head - flo chartreuse chenille body and flo chartreuse marabou tail
Glow head-flo chartreuse chenille body-white marabou tail
Flo. red head-white chenille body-white marabou tail.

For cloudy days I tie some with 5 or six strands of flashabou mixed in the tail.

Well, this is a topsy-turvy world when DID gives up the only helpful information in a "favorite lure" thread! :P

Give it up, boys and girls!

Greens, Golds, pinks, Whites, Glow Green, as of late Red. You know it always seems to change what the color of the week will be. You should just cover them all because you never know what color or combo it might be.

Maybe those are the proven colors that don't work
