Been invited to go to Lake Fork this evening for some night fishing. Wondering if anyone has had any luck there lately at night, and if so would you share what depths and color of jigs. I don't know if they have electronics or will just tie up to bridges or brush, but have not been out in a while so it does not matter; I'm in. Thanks for any help.

Loc: Coppell Tx.

I have not been out at night but just thinking for safety purposes I would focus on bridges and possibly some brush piles in an open area.

I would use a dark color jig. Probably would not hurt to have some minnows also. Tipped the jig and focus on around 18-14 foot deep in about 20 foot of water and go from there.

Good luck and stay safe.

Share with us how y'all do.

Be prepared to catch sand bass. Make sure your rods are in holders or secured.

We did not catch many crappie, but still had a great time. Heck I was just glad to be on the water, and on the downside the boats depth finder stopped working . As stated most bites were sand bass, had some drum also all of the about 12-15 crappie caught were throw backs. we only kept about 5 of the largest sand bass and a couple of drum. Thanks for the info guys.
