My new nighttime technique for smallies!

Recommended Posts

I've been fishin the river lately. Only having sucess on senkos and tubes, even into dark. I tried a crankbait the last few times out, without even a hit, but i didn't think to try it at night. I did last night!!! I tied on one of my most reliable crankbaits, a Rebel Wee-r in the brown orange pattern. I started throwin it at around 9 p.m. and on the second cast I had one on and lost it, I thought...beginners luck. But a few minutes later, another one on and lost it too, so I switched to a bigger back hook. It took bout half an hour 'till I got another bite, I was pullin it straight up current, workin the edge of a dropoff that I'd been catchin fish off of all night when  WHAAAAMMMMM......he hit like a train, I set hook and almost fell outa the boat, and like usual, the net was tangled in something, so...I had to lip a bass with a mouth full of hooks in the dark...wonderfull!!! I got him lipped and in the boat, then found my light. I new it was a nice fish, so I didn't wanna lift him in. I was excited that on my fist night of a new technique that I actually did alright. The fish ended up being 19 inches, 3.2 pound. I had two more hit's that night, no more hookups. I feel that this technique is gonna help me out a lot from now on. I cant wait to get out there and try it again!

I hate it when the net gets caught on something, especailly at night time when you can't see as good.  Most of the time I just lip them just so I don't have to worry about the net being tangled or the bass getting the hook tangled in the net.

Get a rubber net.  They're not expensive and will eliminate the problem.

Hey Little Brother,

Those Rebel Wee R's don't work! You won't find any of those in my tackle bag.  ::)

Nice job!
