Fishing at nighttime to avoid heatPublished 5:25pm Wednesday, July 11, 2012
Some classic nighttime baits are: a buzz bait, spinner bait, plastic worms, crank baits, jigs and about any top water bait.
Black is the most common nighttime color. Really? Black at night? Yes, and the reason is fish see silhouettes at night more than colors.
That being said, in many of the mountainous lakes in our area, the same colors that work in the day work at night. I’ll give credit to the clear waters.
Some of the best locations at night are points, flats and seawalls. Fish will move up on points and flats in schools to feed. Timing is crucial. Fish that move near seawalls will usually hold there longer, but these fish can be super shallow. This is where the casts against the bank are crucial.
So if you are having trouble catching fish, give nighttime a try. It’s more comfortable for you and the fish.
