What were they doing different?
They were spider rigged with 2 minnows per line, had good LED floodlights and just set up to fish at night. I was using 2 poles with single minnows and my buddy was using a jig on his pole. Just the difference between experienced night owls and rookies. lol
HERE'S THE FUNNY PART....we gave them our fish before leaving and they were at the ramp fixing to leave right behind us. After we had left the GAME WARDEN shows up (1:30 a.m.), counts there fish and of course they are over the limit. My buddy's telephone rings and it's the game warden wanting to verify that we gave them our 8 fish. No tickets were written but they were sweating bullets.
