What color on butterflly/flat fall jiog

I bought some bare lead jigs I'm going to foil/paint, I've never fished this style before, only vertical/speed jigs, what have you had your best luck with?
  1. What color for snapper?
  2. What color for tuna?

Thanks

Thanks Hog, I have that foil pattern too. Is it the same on both sides?

Here is one of mine.

The flat fall is purple on one side and silver on the other with some strips of glow. I'm not happy with how the glow stripe turned out.

The knife jig is pink on both sides and I added some horizontal glow stripes.

imho, flat fall or slow jigging doesn't too well out deep (tuna) with strong currents. 99% of the time we are drifting and keeping the jig at a position/depth is nearly impossible. at night & in 200' of water, glow is sorta important, color... not so much. shape, weight and size is very important

In that pink one in the top of the picture more what you'd use then? Those fall straight down.
