I can tell you I have spent quite a few years night fishing and my favorite bait to use is a 10" Berkley Red Shad Power Worm. That was the only night time Carolina rig bait I used on Fork but I also caught a 6 1/2 lber on Palestine one night on it.
But I will also say that it is not my favorite bait to throw at night. I have had some really good nights on Palestine with a Hilldebrandt Black spinnerbait with gold Colorado blade. I don't night fish as much these days but back in the day from Memorial weekend and for the rest of the summer and even into November and December at Monticello if I wasn't fishing a tournament I was night fishing on Fork, Bob Sandlin, Cypress Springs, Palestine, Cedar Creek or Ray Hubbard usually. There was nothing more fun than to have those nights on Fork when they were really hitting.
