I may be the odd wad here, but I fish a crankbait at night, too. When they slam it, there is NO DOUBT that you have a bite. They try to destroy it, of course, the big lizards and worms also take a lot of fish too. Not as many as the CB does but they also are bigger for the most part. Last time I went night fishing, I was throwing a T-rigged lizard and caught a 6.40, winning our night tournament on Alan Henry. I fish the same areas and the same baits (NORMALLY), unless I up or down size the baits. Just SLOW DOWN a lot and you will normally get more bites, it seems. Hope this helps. Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.
