    Can I get some suggestions on which Pearl Ex Powders to buy for tipping scales on my crappie? I usually just spray Iridescent Blue, Iridescent Green, and Gold Sparkle. May also use some colors on Largemouth and Bluegill.

    All your answers is in references. I’ll take a photo, blow it up on my pc and from there all see my golds, blues, greens red etc and go from there. It’s not hard figuring this out , as the scales are large enough for one to see them . I’m not being a PR here cause I can tell you them but if you don’t know where to apply them , then it’s a waste of time. It’s kind of like paint by numbers. On scale 24 , second row from the 3rd spiny ray use interference red on top of scale but halfway down use yellow green and blend in inference gold.

    Thanks Frank! I understand what you're saying. I was looking at a fresh caught crappie this evening in the boat and I thought this would be even better than a refence pic.
