I've learned over the years that when it comes to fishing, thinking outside the box often yields big results, so rather than copying everybody else's fishing style, I decided to figure it out my own way. Bass fishing at night is no secret, but the fact is that not many people do it. I found that it was a surefire way to have the lake to myself every time, even on the weekends, and though the fish were big during the day at my "secret" lake, they were even bigger at night. I think the smaller fish are scared of the dark, but the big ones are definitely not! And to make a long story short, that's how I ended up catching my biggest bass ever at 2:30 am one random night this summer.
I don't usually like divulging my hard-won secret spots on the internet where anybody and their dog can see it; however, in a rare display of generosity, here's a picture of the lake just for you:
|Did I mention that it was always dark when I was there? You should still be able to find it though right?|
Unfortunately I'm not (nor is my camera) the best nighttime photographer. I did manage a few shots of the bass, but that's all I've got for you this time. Enjoy!
So anyway, if you find yourself bored or less than successful with your usual fishing spots or methods, try thinking outside of the box, and maybe give night fishing a try. You might be surprised at the results. I sure was!
