Nighttime chatter

Recommended Posts

Spent my evening and night till 4 am cruising the outside edge of a large lily pad pond.  Tried my toads early on with limited success.  Once night fell and moon came out I started nailing them with the freedom chatterbait.  Very awesome bait and does extremely well getting through peripheral lily pads.

 

At midnight I caught this...

Ive no question that chatterbaits are one of the best night lures ever.  Two of my biggest fish have come from them.

Great Bass and a Wicked Good SMILE ~ !

 A Big Night Ops Beast is like a dream.

I bet you'll remember that one for a while.

I'm a fan of that bait as well.

Congrats

Bladed jigs are a terrific night bait. The bulky profile and strong vibration just calls them in it seems.

Black and blue with GP bighammer ringhammer boottail.  Thing is durable.

Caught 14 all night.  They were hammering it HARD all the way to the side of the kayak.  Had another 4 or 5 pounder swipe at surface about 5 feet from yak. 

 

Unfortunately I had 2 rods one fast and one xfast and i missed a lot of fish.  I had to stop reeling and let them eat and swing into them to hook up.  Its a totally different hokset from regular chatterbaits or swimjigs.  Maybe if I had my modfast rod I wouldnt need to set the hook so hard as they would get a chance to chew on it.

@A-Jay it's obvious that this guy is long-arming that cup of coffee. ???
