River smallies at night?

6 posts in this topic

Anyone ever fish smallies at night? Thinking about giving it a shot if it's worth it!

I usually don't fish them at night because they're usually going nuts during the day. In fact, I'm pretty sure they start to turn off at night, but I could be mistaken.

I've been out on the river and caught them right up until dark but they seem to shut off when it becomes dark.

I have caught them at night by accident. Usually when fishing for walleyes or cats. Not often though... not something I would target.

Sure they'll bite at nite - well on the river I've caught em after 10PM on buzzbaits in the summer. I've also caught Pike at night and I didn't think they bit after dark.

They bite at night, especially when there are hatches going on, which is often, if theres no hatch though it could be hit or miss, and they usually turn off shortly after dark
