So Im walleye fishing shallow by the shoreline with a glow jig and a fathead minnow at about midnight in 2-3 feet of water or less and I caught a 22 inch bass with a 14 in girth it was about 5 1/2 pounds. Is this normal to catch them at night?

Some lakes bass will eat regularly at night and on other lakes they don't eat at all when it is dark. Congrats on the catch. Keep that lake in mind next summer and go out there with a black buzz-bait or a black spinnerbait with a colorado blade on it and slow roll it in the shallows. Might surprise yourself and not do any of that silly walleye fishing at night anymore. grin Just kiddin man, but that is a beast of a fish.

i agree with ya polars, there is going to be some lakes that trigger bass at night. There are some nights out eye fishing that you will run into alot of them.

Great catch.

I run into them frequently on one lake in particular.....the others that I fish often don't seem to produce at night. But on this lake, as soon as the sun hits the horizon it's hammer time! I also recommend throwing floating plastics of lighter color at night, i've had great success this way. Good luck out there.

Depends on the water clarity but yes night time can be excellent. In the summer at my buddies cabin we'd fish off the dock with lighted bobbers and take the spot light and shine down and see a lot of bass, sunnies, bullheads and even a walleye. 2 feet of water, sand with sparse weeds.

If you can catch some frogs try them shallow all night next to a bonfire,the walleye dig em also.
