In my limited night time ventures, the bite is usually dead for a good portion of the night and there will be a period of an hour or two where they will turn on. I fish around full moons. Because there's more light. If I fish docks at night I slow down ALOT. Otherwise like you said, breaks. Depth change is your friend. Points, creek bends in the front halves of pockets, flats near creeks. Also, I don't know what your lure selection is, but stick to the same things you catch them on during daylight. Big colorado blades do work at night, but for the most part, whatever your imitating to catch them during the day, doesn't change colors at night, why should your color selection.
