Fishing at night

Catfish. Saltwater catfish. We could not keep them off our lines! About the only thing I ever found them good for was bait for cobia and jewfish. We were going through bait like there was no tomorrow, but I persisted knowing that a huge mangrove snapper was just watching and waiting to take one of those baits.
It’s pretty tough baiting hooks and removing fish at night. It’s doubly tough when you have to do it for you and the person fishing with you. My rod was in the rod holder doubled over and the drag was singing that sweet tune that says a big fish on! I grabbed the rod and began fighting. Night fishing is fun you need to take bug repellent and a good lantern.

Hello fellow fisherman,

Did you know that 16% of the U.S. population goes fishing at least 16 days a year?

Did you also know that over 75% of the nations fishermen do not fish during "prime time"; fish feeding hours?

Those precious few moments before twilight can be absolutely magical. Even up until 11pm at night, the largest predators of any species feed ravenously.

Don't believe me? Check out Daniel Eggertsen's story, and a picture of a couple of his catches here : "Evening Secrets plus more"

I want you to do me a favor and try it out so I can see what you think of it, and if it works for you as well as it did for me.

You will be one of the first to try it out.

Gone Fishin',
