Night Bite, Jackall Pompadour

Recommended Posts

I needed a bass fix, so I headed to my neighbor's pond for a couple hours, since the moon was out and I could see pretty well. Tied on a Jackall Pompadour and went to work. I ended up landing 4 bass, all of them under 2lbs but at night it doesn't take a big one to get the blood pumping. What will get the blood pumping is when a beaver slaps his tail a few feet from your lure and your brain tells you it's the craziest topwater strike of all time before you realize what is going on. 

As A Jay has said in some of his recent posts about night fishing, you lose most of your vision so every other sense is incredibly heightened, making for a really neat experience.

Beavers get me every time. Tons of them on the Kansas River. They always seem to do it right as I'm dozing off when the bite is slow and I almost fall out of my chair because of it.

I like fishing dusk into the early night hours.  My first time out during those hours I thought it was a giant fish messing with me, but the next day I realized it was a beaver and felt dumb. Glad I'm not the only one! Nice catches.

Bought same exact Pompadour the other day, went out Saturday morning pre-dawn and caught @ 15 fish with it. Including a 4lb 4oz. Was pretty awesome.

My beaver story.

Many years ago a friend and I snuck onto this lake way out in the woods. This place was some kinda spooky. It was some kinda sun worshipping cult place back in the 1940s. They had little huts built around the lake with what looks like sacrifice alters here and there. The place was long since abandoned and overgrown with weeds. It was a moonless night and we were so scared we could hardly fish. That's when BAM! right next to the boat! I've never paddled so fast in my life! That beaver scared us right off the lake, never to return...
