Q:
My friend says that spinnerbaits are best for cloudy days, but it seems to me they would work better on a sunny day. Just for kicks, whose right?

I would say that it depends on other factors like the water temperature and time of year and day, but I often hear that spinners are good for cloudy days, and have had a lot success. As to whether it works better when it sunny or cloudy I'm not too sure.

I have personally used spinner baits in the rain, at night, early morning, high noon, and late evening all while catching fish. I usually have six rods prerigged with different lures setting at my feet in the boat so that I can quickly present different lures to a given area before passing it up. The worm is probably the most universal lure for all situations and I have caught my largest bass on them, but a Snagless Sally inline spinner sporting a gold blade and black and yellow skirt with a pork frog trailer has also produced good results for me 24 hours around the clock rain or shine and cold or hot.

I have noticed no difference between sunny and overcast days. I've had better luck with spinner baits in the early morning and the late evening but you can catch bass on them all day long, every day. In most bass waters, the bass pull away from the shallows during the heat of the day and will be a little deep for spinnerbaits. However, those that are still hunting the shoreline or clinging to shallow structure can still be taken all day long, regardless of sun conditions.
