AMFisH daily blog post – dark and natural colours are the way to go on very overcast days.

Hi fellow AMFisHers!   This AMFisH blog post is about using the right colour bait on those very overcast days as well as on low light days, even around dusk.

When the sun is out and very bright you will want to use all those bright flashy colours,  something like a nice bright white and nickel blade as you can see in the picture below.

Bright days means the fish will see bright baits and flash very easily from below while looking up of following a bait, so use all those flashy/bright colours to target fish on days like that.


On those dark days or evenings it is a totally different story when it comes to fish seeing a bait.  Dark and natural colours on this overcast/dark days will allow the fish from below to see that darker profile a lot easier, as the dark colour will stand out without light hitting it.   The pike in the below picture was caught late evening with very little daylight left and as you can see I used a solid black spinnerbait with a big noisy black Colorado blade and a dark soft plastic swimbait as a scent trailer.


Utilizing some noise on your bait on those dark days and evenings can help attract more fish as well, they will be able to zone in on the bait following the noise and seeing that darker profile, the more options you give yourself the better success you will have.

Remember dark natural colours like, blacks, dark blue, black/red, dark brown and june bug are the key colours for producing fish with limited sunlight.

Having an assortment of darker and brighter/flashy baits will definitely give you a huge advantage to being more versatile on the water which in turn will raise your fish catch ratio to a much higher success level!

Hope you found this blog post helpful!
