we fished from 1800-0145 and except for the schooling sandies, only landed 2 big unders. we had 14 blow-ups on frogs and yellow magics and i had good hook sets on four that either spit the baits or wrapped me on brush. one even had the audacity to spit the hook in the dark while i had maximum pressure on him causing the popper(smallish thankfully) to hit me right in the middle of the forehead. no hookset there but a small cut and lump. could have been much worse. i will look away/down from now on when it is too dark to see anyway. i had never felt eye protection was necessary while fishing, but i would have appreciated some last night. pictures to follow.

Ouch! But yes, middle of forehead much better than in the eye.
