Hooking up after dark

I don’t know about you, but I’m just about tired of sweating rivers out on Charlotte Harbor. That’s why I’m doing more night fishing. Avoiding the heat, the sunburn, the wind and most of the thunderstorms are really just side benefits. The real draw: Most fish seem to feed better at night. Sure, they’ll eat during the day when it’s convenient, but they’re really on the prowl after the sun sets. The water cools off and everything gets more active, so it’s a great time to fish.

Of course, there’s the fact that humans can’t see in the dark. It’s really important to know the area you’re fishing. You can’t see sandbars and other obstructions to navigation, so you have to know where they are.
