ABSTRACT. The interrelation between fishing bait color and size and the species and size of fish caught using these baits was investigated in the spring and fall of 2010 from the Skośnica Canal to Dąbie Lake in Międzyodrze. The fishing lures comprised two different colored twisters (motoroil and pearl) of three different sizes (3.5 cm, 6.5 cm, 9 cm). A total of 179 fish of three species – perch, pikeperch, and pike, were caught. The perch and pikeperch showed preferences for bait color, as more fish were caught with the motoriol twisters than with the pearl-colored bait. No such preferences were noted with regard to pike. Additionally, it was determined that bait size had a significant impact on the size of the fish caught.
