Don't forget some jigs, best big fish night bait I've found.

1/2 oz single spin spinnerbait with a large colorado blade for vibration. I usually use black .

here in the ozarks, we fish at night all fall. sometimes you have to handpick your nights to go. as the water dictates, we fish the same banks and use the same methods that we did in the spring. our first coice of bait is a jig. until the water reaches below 56 to 57 we will use a rubber skirted jig. below that temp we go to hair. spinner baits work well and also a crankbait. i would imagine if you live in new york you have some vegetation to deal with and the crankbait might not be an option.

Where to fish should be your goal, the lure needs to be able to work where you fish it.

Top water lures are most effective the hour before and after it get dark. T-rigged soft plastics work in shallower cover areas, down to about 10'. If you don't fish the lure during the day time, leave it home at night.

The all time best night lure across the country is Berkely's Power worm, 7 1/2" and 10" in black or black with blue flakes. T-rigs are simple to use, don't snag often. Go up in line size to 15 or 20 lb and use 4/0 hooks with 3/16 oz weight.

Learning to use new lure at night isn't productive and very frustrating.

PS; like Bo I aml a jig fisherman and that would be my first choice, however a ,cold dark night is not a good time to learn to fish jigs.

I would also suggest slinging a 6" huddleston in your favorite pattern. I've gotten some big bites swimming a rof 5 hud along shorelines at night. No hook ups though :cry4: a wakebait if you know the fish are active.

Try the 68 Hudd at night, the extra thump seems to call them in like a colorado single blade spinnerbait.
