USE BRIGHT COLOURS

Make it easier for the fish to locate a bait that they may have already received a flavour signal from by using a brightly coloured hookbait. This also increases the chances of a pick-up through curiosity. Different colours may standout out better on any given day due to light levels etc. So try different colours across your rods and change after periods of inactivity, until hopefully you discover what works best.
