Finding Beds @ Night?

Recommended Posts

How do you search for beds when there is no light out? I do all of my night fishing from the bank so I have no electronics to work with. What would be the best way to start? Should I just pound the bank in search of flats or what? Maybe I need to recon the place during the day when there is light?

Mark them with something during the day. My dad has a friend that has a fairly descent size pond in his back yard. He puts bobbers with reflective tape on them with a big 1 oz weight tied to a long enough line to reach the bottom. All you have to do is scan the area with a light and those things will stick out like a sore thumb.

I have never done it myself, but supposedly it works. Don't see why it wouldn't.

I've lived in the same condo since '83 so finding my bed in the dark is no problem unless I trip :o over one of my cats en route.

Now, if I'm at a different place I usually ask her to, at the least, not snuff the scented candle until I join her. That, or I follow the sound of her little snores 8-).

Ohhhhhh...BASS beds?...never mind.

Sorry about that, but the devil made me do it

I don't think there is anyway you can find beds at night if you havn't scouted them out during the day.  The only other way would be to shine a mag light into the water in likely looking places and why would anyone want to do that?
