Shad and Space monkey... 2 different trips

Recommended Posts


Well my husband has been trying to get me to do some night fishing for some time now and yesterday was the day. We arrived at the lake and I had no idea what to use to fish at night so I decided to put on a rage tail shad. I figured this bait makes a lot of noise and I was hoping that would help me. At the very least it let me know where my bait was since I couldn't see anything. lol

Decided to start off in about 3-5 feet of water, a little "pathway" between some lily pads and a weedbed. A few casts later I heard a splash and felt a tug. I then started hoping that it was a fish on the other end because I could not see a thing and I know their are a lot of ducks around this place. ;D Luckily I was right and it was a fish. I could not have been happier.

My first night fishing bass! ;D


In the end I found that night fishing was alot of fun but came with a whole new set of challenges too.

1. bats

2. removing a hook you can't see

3. removing loops in your line

I am sure there is a few more that I have not yet discovered too. ;D


Today my uncle gave me a call and he wanted to do some fishing so we headed to one of my new favorite honeyholes. The sky was very overcast, it was drizzling a little and we were expecting some thunderstorms... PERFECT fishing weather in my book.

Started off fishing around the pads and it was not 5 minutes we were there and my uncle had the first fish of the day. I was hoping it was gonna be a good sign.. ;D I believe he caught his on a senko.


Not too long after that I was casting out into a small cove in between 2 sets of pads with a space monkey in my newly discovered FAVORITE color for overcast days... JUNEBUG! ;D I fished this behind a split shot and it seemed to do the trick for me again. I still can't believe how well this color works for this particular place.

Little while later the bite died down a little so I changed it up again and this time threw the big anaconda. Upsizing the bait seemed to work because I landed a few more on that as well. Here is one of them.


The worst thing about this whole day was I was so excited about my new fish and I could not get the pic of the new fish on the computer so now I had to wait for my husband to get home and have him do it. Only problem was I was not supposed to be fishing. :-[ Needless to say I was busted. :'(

I hope you guys have been out fishing too and I also hope your not gonna get in trouble for it like me. ;D

You go girl!  With fish like that I'm sure Matt will understand.  You're still with us so he obviously got past the broken rod. ;)
