Night fishing


Well its getting to be that time here in the South where Night time fishin is getting going. The days are getting too hot to stay out all day and the fishing dies off normally after noon or so.

So we resort to night time fishing which I have to say is one of my favorite times to fish, much less boat traffic, cooler temps and just yourself and the bugs that try to tote you off emoticon .

What does everyone else use as their nighttime baits????

Me I really like throwing a big spinnerbait that feels like your pulling a hubcap through the water. I'll also use a big worm and sometimes a black buzzbait.

What about you? emoticon

Re: Night fishing


Southern buddy I absolutely love night fishing.........bad thingis there is only one lake locally that lends itself to night fishing. Anyways when I lived in Pa I used a single colorado blade spinner with a long arm but with a rattkle on it......used a deep dish colorado blade with a rattle on the arm. As a trailer I used half a black power worm for a trailer.......Get on a chunk rock bank that has some lighting on it and HANG ON......the smallies loved it and when it come by a largemouth they just annilated it. Of course there was the jig fishing and the 10" worm fishing as well. I use the same techniques on Lake monticello and do VERY well.

Very nice stringer. OK, I've got a question. What is the deal with the black lights. Why use those when night fishing? Don't want to sound like a dam fool, but never heard of it till I started talking to all you guys.

Nico2,

Black lights make mono look like a rope at night. You can see that stuff glow in the dark!

Nic, I like them so I don't fall off the boat! I'm kinda clumsy as it is, night time just doesnt help me any on a boat! So a black light keeps me from falling in..... so far! emoticon

Just cause there's a wiggle in the water don't mean the fish's on the hook.

Re: Night fishing


 I am always kinda hesitant to let this one outta the bag but what the hell we are all family here.....for those of you that night fish trust me you HAVE to make a few of these things......they arnt available commercially......

First off you have to find a Long arm spinner bait with black head and black skirt. Take off whatever blade is on them.....whoops forgot to tell ya that you have to order a couple of things first......Order some #5 Deep Dish colorado blades.....I have all 4 types.....hammered and finished in brass or gold and as well in chrome.....The second thing you have to find is the rattle......and good luck on locating them.......I have to hunt some down again because the place I use to get them doesnt exsist anymore....Anyways the rattle is a small cone shaped rattle with a hole through it that a .035 wire...the same wire used on most spinnerbaits will fit through....the rattle usually had 3 BB's in em. ....Now back to buidling the bait.....after you have taken the spinners off the bait first thing is to put at least one bead on..then put the rattle on....then 2 beads after that...then bend the wire to allow reattaching the SINGLE #5 DEEP DISH clorado blades you have bought. Wholla your done except for threadin on half a Berkley black worm for a trailer.

Now get out there and find those banks that at night got a little light on them....be it from electrical lights or the bright moon...also make SURE that there is chunk rock available....dont need to be any bigger than basketball ball size and the bank really needs rto be a gentle sloping banl and start slow rolling and pump and go retrieve these baits.

I can tell you how much money this bait and technique won me in Pa. on the night tourneys but I will tell you this...The rod that I use to throw this combo on has had to be rebuilt 3 times because they hit it so damn hard they will eventually knock the eyes off. I PROMISE YOU THAT.

ure not a damn fool, if you don't know then you don't know and we're here to share info!

very simple i put out submersable green lights 21" long bout 6' deep and power them with a battery. i usually put them near a dock if not directly under the dock. after bout 15-20 minutes plankton starts to show up in the water and bugs on the water surface, after bout 30-45 minutes bait fish will show up to feed on the bugs and plankton. it usually takes no more than 1 hour before the game fish crappie, bass, whites, strippers and others to hear the bait fish feeding on the bugs and plankton and they figger its a free meal. at this point its ure choice you can either float a minnow or jig fish. if i'm jig fishing i drop a small jig thru the bait fish to the bottom and reel bask thru the bait ball, black and chartruce is my 1st choice. if i'n fishing with a minnow i use a cork slip rig set to bout 10' deep. once i bait the hook i'll either cut off 1 of his pectoral fins or take out a chunk of his tail with my nail clippers, this makes the minnow swim funny and look wounded the target fish will 99.99999999% of the time hit a wounded fish before chasing a healthy fish. if you are able net some of the bait fish and use them before using the store bought minnows as the size and color will be more natural to the circiling bait ball.

if you have never done this i highly recomend you give it a try! i spent $25 on each light and fiddy on a car battery at wally world, money well spent. and very relaxing to a point as ure not running and gunnin down the shore line worring bout ding ure prop on a timber or rock that the sonar missed. however when the game fish show up to the lights to feed on the bait fish look out its is usually non stop action. i took out 2 guys that didnt fish , dropped the lights and in 2 hours they had boated 126 whited in 2 hours and were ready to quit! needless to say i ruined them fellers.
