A dry or semi-dry suit, an inflatable life jacket, and a personal locator beacon to summon a helicopter are my goto safety equipment at night on the water for riskier trips.

Do you guys think it's too cold for night fishing right now in SoCal? Night fishing is pretty awesome but I have only done it peak summer 

Nope. Try a black or black and blue jig.

"Moonlight Madness" night fishing the upper lake at Castaic begins this month (4/22/23) and again in May (5/20/23), and then in June and July as well. You can fish in a boat or from the shore at those events.

@A-Jay shared a lot of valuable advice. I love night fishing because that's when big ones bite. The only drawback are the photos. Mine are lousy. Like A-Jay, I avoid as much light as possible and I fish in some darkness as much as possible too, launching as early as 3:00 a.m.

@A-Jay your posts here have helped rekindle the fire for night fishing under me.  I have not caught a big bass night fishing...ever.  I've been in the boat when a 10+, a few 8s, and loads of smaller bass have been boated, just none have been on my line.  My biggest so far has been 3.75 lbs..  I will set aside time to try to conquer that demon this year.

Glad to hear it Jim.

Good Luck but be careful.

You might get your arm broke.

@A-Jay it's in the mid 60s at night...wanna go?

Yes @Catt 

But I'll need to shovel the snow here

before I can head your way.  

In the mean time get that FFS machine fired up and tuned in because that's the only way either of us will ever catch any bass ever again.

LOL

:thumbsup:

@A-Jay I'm heading up to Toledo for 4 days during the next full moon. Don't let it be that warm cause I may sneak off.
