Night Time Magic

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine (Gene) said that he hadn't been Night Fishin' in over 10 years and I told him "We gotta fix that" ;D So off we went to witness the Lure of the Darkness. It was one of those nights that began with ckin water first and fishin' second, because this lake is relatively new to me and I haven't fished it since last year. We spent an hour and a half doing some electronics searching to study things and with full Summer patterns in this part of Texas, the majority of the fish were in 20 ft or deeper.

The surface temps were in the low 80's over most of the lake, and we decided the best style of fishing would be Jig n lobster, Carolina rigging the Rage Tail ______ and throwing a Big O Worm.....we guessed right. Regardless of where we went, the fish gladly ate our offerings.

Many of the first fish were small cookie cutter size and that made us change the structure we were targeting from deep grass humps, to 20 ft depth on relatively sharp decline into the river channel bends. I marked the depth with waypoints and held the boat in that depth throwing parallel along the decline in order to more completely cover the determined depth. The size of the fish improved substantially and Gene gotta Good'un. No scales on board so didn't weigh her....but gotta picture. Was a great fight and on the hook set the rod creaks, the drag strips and then she ran Gene's drag several more times which had him on his tippy toes. I love that part ;D

We're off the lake by 5:30 AM and just in time because in rolls rig after rig for a local tournament.....Rush Hour ;)

Carolina rigging the Rage Tail ______

I'll assume you can't say the name, cause you haven't named it, correct? Will you be at Icast showing it off?

Let me take a crack at it though......

"The New Rage Tail Nightcrawler"

or how about

"The Rage Tail Snake"

Nice fish by the way, short relatively short for its size and FAT!

Nice try.

Steve, glad to see your buddy hook into a fish like that. No better sales technique than to show what the bait can do. ;)

Keep it up man.

Steve, I think you need a 'Field Tester' in the Mid West.  I volunteer to bite the bullet.
