Common colors like yellow, orange, red and chartreuse are all shades of gray to the eyes of the Bass fish when it’s dark. In other words, the bass sees all these different colors as one color and that is grey. With twilight fading, blue is the only color that the Bass is able to see.

A Few Tips and Techniques for Bass Fishing At Night

  1. 1. It only takes a little bit of vibration or noise in the vicinity or proximity for the Bass to pick up the cue and stealthily sneak up on its prey and nab it instantly. While the fact is that the Bass’s reflex actions have a lot to do with its ability to stalk its prey, for the most part though, they hunt as soon as there is sighting of a prey. The fact that color is lacking, doesn’t seem to bother the bass or isn’t an impediment to stalking prey when it’s nighttime. Compared with human beings, their ability to detect shapes and movements is far better. Therefore, only baits that Bass can see clearly at nighttime should be selected. When the sky lights up on a full moon night and for the reflection of the glints, a few baits made of metal like chrome, nickel and gold should be carried so that the glint of the lights from the dock reflect. Lighted water – Installing fishing lights for boats would be prudent as going night fishing with boat lights for a fishing enthusiast would be beneficial as they would be able to navigate with ease in areas nearby parks, parking lots, docks and so on at night, as there is migration of the food chain in its entirety to areas that are illuminated.
  2. 2. Reduce mess – The deck of the boat should have at the most three rods over and above the one that would be used and they should be kept aside on the deck so that no one would step on them when it’s dark. Lesser the mess, the better it is. The deck should be cleared of nets, cord, rods, and jackets as well. Handy storage – Snuff cans made of plastic could be used as tackle boxes of the size of pocket. In one of the snuff cans, a couple of worm rattles could be stored as well as beads made of glass, hooks and to peg sinkers, a few toothpicks. A variety of sinkers could be kept in another. Gear - Hook sharpener, line clippers, knife/scissors, and mini flashlight on lanyards should be attached to the belt or around the neck so that they would come handy as and when needed. Retrieve – As spinner baits and crank baits move alongside at a moderate or steady pace, the chances of missing a strike are a lot less. A steady or gentle pace of the retrieve would attract the fish towards the vibration or sound. Knots – It’s an acquired skill of learning to tie a Palomar knot with eyes shut. The break points in other knots are higher, unlike Palomar knots and therefore it’s easy to tie and prefect too.
