your choice of colors and types of plastics to fish are going to based on a few real simple things
first the conditions you are fish (ok maybe not so simple) but you'll find small offerings in the colder slower times and larger during warmer times
you'll fish them slower in the cold and faster in hte heat
you'll aslo find natural colors like the ones you mentioned will work in most all conditions but when the water gets stained you'll find you can get the attention of a few more fish with some real bright colors and catch a few more providing they're not to spooky.
second you asked about what types and you mentioned thwe basstrix
you're going to find as a consumer you're going to want certain things in the product you buy.
I can tell you what I look for. I look for some thing that is durrable and can handle cathching a few fish befor its all torn up. I also like a plastic that doesn't float. I like them to be nutraul to sinking for nice action.
I'll also say hook is personal as well I don't fish a 5/0 like mentioned intead I look for the small more wire like hooks say ln a 1/0 or 2/0 that are and most importantly very sharp.
swim baits can be fished from bottom to top from fast to slow so try different actions to reach the fish. let them have it be for you go rippen a pro like hook set.
