I plan on taking the boat and fishing all night Friday. This will be my first night time fishing trip so any advice would be greatly appreciated. I installed lights this last weekend and bought some underwater lights just for this trip. I'll be up by buck creek. Any advice or suggestions? Thanks.

Got that covered. Thanks Jim SR. Any recommendations on lures or just go live bait?

I’d fish live bait. I’ve been catching 50 plus a trip on jigs tipped with minnows. That’s also in the daytime though. You’ll be sorting through the short fish I’m sure

I've always wanted to try glow-in-the-dark jigs...with some good ole slab Slabber!! Might be worth a try.

I've been out 6 times at night this summer we fish the bridge on lone oak road by the pecan creek boat ramp. We use a green submersible light and small minnows every trip has been about the same 60 fish with only about 20 keepers. Our experience has been as long as there is a chop on the water they bite if the wind dies and it gets calm it's over. The light draws all fish so use a rod holder or tie your rod down a sand bass or catfish gar ect will get in a heart beat.Good Luck

Jordan park boat ramp go north into the trees about 1000yards from the ramp to the east of wolf island there is a creek channel in about 40 fow. Tie up to any of those trees and get ready to catch 100+Fish on minnows under your floating head lights

tie up under the bridge on Buck creek. Not the train bridge, but the highway bridge. Use minnows, and hold your rod. sometimes the bite is so light you won't feel it. We do really well in that spot every time we go out. fish outer edges of your lights and fish by the Pillars. good luck.
