RayBob is a phenomenal night fishing lake. I have fished it at night from 2000-2013 with prolly 10-15 trips every summer. I just got out of the habit in recent years. We've had some of the best fishing experiences ever during those times. We would always know the areas very well, and pretty much duplicate and simplify our methods of catching. Three baits is all we would throw, C-rig, topwater, and T-rig. We would meet around 6pm-7pm at ramp closest to where we plan to fish, throw C-rigs before dusk, then topwaters until it got dark. Then, everything gets put up w/exception of T-rig. The bait of choice would be 10" power worms, nothing else. That's all you would need and plus it makes it a whole lot easier with less clutter in the boat. There were many a nights that we would load up on biggens. We never busted a DD fishing at night, but we had more 7, 8, and 9's than a man could count during that span. I suspect we had some DD's on, but just never landed them. Each trip we would always go do the same stuff and very rarely we would come away without some toads. There's not much more exciting stuff than setting the hook on a fish and all you get is hard pull and then hearing the fish bust the surface and you trying to get it in the boat without seeing any of the commotion. Fishing time would vary, but usually we were ready to go home by 1am-2am. That way the next day isn't totally ruined, that is, if I could get that darned Ron to agree it's time to go. We would use a spotlight for running and our most successful trips came on new moon instead of full moon phase. Like someone said in a previous post, you can see better with as little of light as you can get by with, especially on new moon. We knew our areas so well, that one night I kicked my buddy's favorite rod/reel combo over the boat accidentally, and this turd was adamant on getting it back, so he stripped down to his skivvies, slithered in amongst trees and everything, and swam down in 10ft of water and found that rod. It took several attempts, but he really did it! At 2am in the morning! He went feet first and felt it on bottom and brought 'er up.....thank goodness, saved me $500 replacement cost, haha....honest to God true story. I could tell you some more entertaining experiences, but we'll leave it at that. What happens at RayBob at night, stays at RayBob...man, I miss those nights!
