If you are going to wonder about color its simple really. A really well known surf-caster in The Fisherman magazine years ago was featured as he was known for being able to pull cows consistently and it was noted that in his bag everything was a shade of green. When he was asked about the color he simply replied, "Just about everything the stripers eat have a shade of green color. You don't see black baitfish do you?" And it's true, sand eels, eels, spearing, etc. have shades of green in them. Basically green covers the general population of what a striper usually runs into. Does it make green superior over other colors? Not necessarily but its a good point.
