    How do you change your tactics from day to night when fishing.

    Im curious in relation to bait choices, color, size or baits that typically work better at night.

      At night I use darker and larger baits that make noise in one way or another. Usually topwater works very well at night, but it's not something I commonly do in the day except for in thick cover or in saltwater. Fish tend to go shallower at night. They feel safer near the surface then, and the water isn't to warm for them. So basically I go bigger, darker, louder and shallower.

      That's generalist advice though, it all depends on the location and target species. If it worked well during the day, there's a chance it will work at night too. You don't always have to change tactics if it's still productive as it gets darker.

        Use bigger lures that give off more vibration and noise. Black is the only color you will need. Black spinnerbaits with a single colorado blade, black 10 inch worms, black buzzbaits, etc.

            I make my brother leave the boat. He tends to snag my ear on his backcast when it gets dark.

              I do the same things as shane and Ethan3. Good advice there and I would add Zara Spooks and Jitterbugs to the list of effective lures at night.
