Don’t Underestimate The Cloudy Days – Bonefish

Don’t Underestimate The Cloudy Days – Bonefish


If you have ever been on the flats and woken to cloudy weather you may have been a bit disheartened, fear not here we explain why sometimes cloud cover can create great visibility in the water.


Without a doubt, bone fishing is a visual game. Therefore, there’s no question that a bright, sunny, cloudless day is ideal on the flats.



By the same token, it’s no secret that most of the time heavy cloud cover can make for a tough day of fishing. However, contrary to popular belief, some cloudy days can actually provide decent visibility.



Don’t get us wrong, nothing beats a bright bluebird day, but when coupled with low winds, a high ceiling of cloud cover can actually allow for surprisingly good visibility, particularly over light coloured bottoms. We see it all the time on calm mornings with minimal sunlight, which is why even when the forecast looks bleak, we always like to say..


Don’t Underestimate the Cloudy Days!



We’ve seen a lot of big fish caught on cloudy days in the past. Perhaps there’s something to be said about the comfort of a bonefish under lower light conditions. We’ll never know for sure. What we do know is that we no longer underestimate the cloudy days, and think you shouldn’t either!


Do you want to get out and catch yourself a Bonefish?
