Any luck night fishing lately?

Recommended Posts

A couple weeks ago people were talking about running buzzbaits at night.  Any luck recently?  I'm probably going to go to lake Royal tonight and give it another go.  During the week, night fishing is pretty much all I can do.

Rob and I went out Monday night on the new moon from 10:00 to 12:15 or so, We threw prop baits for the frist hour or so to no prevail, Rob alternated a white buzz bait and a torpedo and I threw a black buzzbait and texas rigged tube with rattle.  Frustrated we went back to the truck to rig up some carolina rigs and then Rob got one on that, I think it was a c-rigged lizard, I didn't have any hits on the c-rigged tube, or texas rigged tube (black and blue).  Finnally nearing the 11:57-midnight bite I started tossing the black buzzbait again and landed one around 11:50.  That's it, it was slow, Rob had a few slaps at the torpedo, nothing serious though.  The bite last night was midnight-3 something, I didn't fish it.  Tonight it's a little after midnight until 3 or so again, I believe.  I'll be back out doing the same thing on the FULL moon in the middle of the month.

It was dark, I tore them up (7 in 45 minutes) in a bright full moon a few weeks ago in April.

             We need another midnight run. ;)   When is the full moon, we should meet up and get to it again. Some of the best fishing I have done has been by the light of the full moon.

              I have a strange feeling I will be in my boat, floating around Burke lake dragging the ole' c-rig around "the spot". Who is jumping in? Trevor, get your boat.

I've been wanting to night fish Burke for a while.  When are you all planning on going I might be able to make it or if not this time maybe another.  BTW I do have a boat and if I dont go with a buddy I'd have room for one

I'd love to go, but it sounds like we might have more passengers than boat seats... :-/

Im definitely in, I can bring my kayak if anyone is brave enough to go out other in the dark with me.  I'm going to rig some kind of lighting onto it soon.

So thats me, my kayak, and room for one.

              All right guys, borrow a jon boat or something. I'm pretty sure Trevor is in with me. Unless he goes and gets his boat. Dan, get yours ready. I'll just have "feel the burn" tow you around........Or maybe I could, I just need to put you in one spot.

lol, i have a trolling motor and battery that someone could use.  That way i don't have to tow boats around. I don't want my body getting all disproportional with thighs of steel.
