I had the chance to fish with Jeff Bobo (Bobo's Guide Service and Bobo's Thumper), last night and it turned out to be a good night. He wanted to see how the fish were being caught and he didn't do too bad. Once we ran to the mid-lake area we started catching stripers and black bass at a pretty quick pace. By the time we got off the water we had lipped about 50 fish. Not bad for a few hours!!

I'm curious how you target stripers/hybrids/whites at night. Is it much different than day fishing? I always figured they scattered and were hard to find.

It is a light thing. Street lights, underwater lights attract the bait fish and the bait fish attract everything else. Once you know which lights produce then it's like taking candy away from a baby!! I have been doing this since the late 90's. Even now the fish will surprise me. That is why it is called fishing and not catching. I can say this--I have been skunked during the daylight hours but never have I been skunked at night.

The fun part was watching your mono line grow 3 times it’s size with ice as it come up as you reeled it in
The catching was fun too.
