    I have found that they can be caught under cloudy or dark skies or darker waters by using different color jigs. I like chartreuse or chart/black.

    I've caught skipjack on cloudy, rainy, and snowy days, but I definitely thing bright sunshiny days are best. Just the opposite for stripers. They seem to prefer the darker, overcast days, but I've caught them on bright days too.
    While fish may have their preferences, if they're hungry, they're gonna eat.

    On cloudy days I like to catch skips on a flyrod they hit on top better.
