I don't night fish because I think the water temperatures are cooler or the bass feed better at night.

 

I night fish because it's to stinking hot during the day!

I don't fish at night because I'm too scaredey-cat. I'm not afraid on the water, but because I fish little, isolated lakes, I'd be scared coming off the water.

Thanks @A-Jay!!  This thread has opened my fish catching world, really great stuff.  Looking back on this year, my water produced it's biggest fish by month May-September at night.  I'm just looking for opinions/experiences on night time ops in the late fall/winter/early spring.  After all, there's a lot more night.  I haven't had as much time yet to try it out myself.  My instincts say the bass have a metabolic advantage in the cold water and a sensory advantage at night meaning it should be an opportune time.

If I can catch them during the day – I can catch them at night.  It just depends on if I want to be out there.  Very early & very late in the season are clearly less comfortable but I’ve had some very successful nights in both April & October.  These results will vary depending on one’s local & legal fishing season. Cooler water may mean the bass eat less often so that might come into play when working an area for bites.

I would like to introduce you to day drinking, it's a blast at my age to eat dinner with a buzz and go to sleep.

I start night fishing in April & go until October. Depending on weather I have night fished in March & November. Got a couple buddies who night fish year round.

As a dedicated bank angler, I will say that some of my best fish came before sunrise and after sunset. I also think it's way more fun and exciting because you really aren't going to know what you've caught until you pull it out of the water. Makes everything more interesting imo.
