A buddy and I went to a local golf course tonight for the first time to try some night fishing. We were out there for about an hour and a half with zero fish to show for it. We fished in 3 of the ponds, and saw a few bass jumping at the surface, but didn't want our senko, buzzbait or spook. How do you guys typically like to go about night bassing?

I really like a jitterbug reeled in slow and constant or a 3/8 single Colorado blade black spinnerbait slow rolled. Zero fish is tough, maybe you couldn't see the structure they were holding to?

anything that makes vibration or noise. Bass will be feeding with their lateral line and ears more than their eyes. This means you want stuff with rattles or big colorado blades which generate lots of vibration. You don't need to match the hatch because it is at night. 

if fish are bursting on the surface, start with a buzz bait. if you miss strikes add a trailer hook, than switch to a jitterbug/ popper. lastly a walking bait with a slow retrieve.

if the fish are active but not tw hungry use a colorado spinnerbait. or a rattling crank bait. also try a chatter bait.

if fish are inactive use a 1oz black/bluejig with a big trailer. try slow rolling a spinnerbait or chatterbait

 

hope tis helps and sorry i didn't care about grammar

Sometimes when I go night fishing , they bite at twilight until complete darkness , then there is a lull . Often it picks up real good around midnight ,  So , go try again is my advice . .

To echo what Catt and Scale said, like anyother time you have to put in the time. If you have the three ponds simply rotate through all three numerous times. After dark I would fish parallel to the bank and throw what I have a high amount of confidence in. If they hit It during the day they will hit the bait at night.  

 

Edit: I could give  a number of baits that I fish during the night time hours but they are basically the same as I throw during the day. The one exception Is a spinnerbait at night. I never throw one during the day but at night..... I might throw darker hues at night but they are the same as i throw during the day. Keep that in mind.

so i went back to the pond ive been doing well at but this time i decided to take the yak out instead of shore fishin. fished 6p-6a.  i pounded the back and the western shore the bite sucked.  i got 3 dinks in the 8 hours i fished that shoreline! i even targeted some offshore humps i knew of. fished a lot of topwater chatterbaits and spinerbaits. texas rigged creature baits craws and 10 inch worms. so at 3 am i was back to the spot ive been smoking bass at. i get out of the yak and shore fished here till 6.  first cast i catch a little 2lbs smallie. 
switch up to a texas rig.   i missed a good fish. next cast catch a 4.9 largemouth.   then a 4.1 smallie and a 3lbs even largemouth. 


oh and  a cool thing happened to me! as i was fishing i could see flashes of light and i didnt know what the hell they were. i got scared a storm was rolling through but the skies were partly cloudy  so i checked the radar map on my phone closest storm was south of marthas vineyard and nantucket. so as i got out towards the middle of the pond i could see the storm rolling through! i thought it was pretty cool that i could see a storm so far south! 

i fished I disagree off! bite sucked until i got to my good spot!

Jig and a bladed jig do most of the dirty work for me at night.
