Summer Night Fishing: Everything You Need To Know To Catch Bass At Night!

Night fishing is worth it and you should give it! The dog days of Summer can be brutal but Summer nights are magical and packed with aggressive fish! Just like fishing in the day, there are some tricks to constantly catching big bass. In today’s video we cover everything from moon phase to overlooked lures that get big bites in the dark!

Traditional angling knowledge would have you out on the lake at night with a Colorado bladed spinnerbait and a 10″ black power worm. While this works extremely well on a lot of fisheries, its just the tip of the iceberg on what an angler can do at night. Creature baits, reaction baits, topwater, swimbaits, even finesse baits, are all excellent choices at night. There is a time and place for everything and that’s what we want you to gain from today’s video. 

You can’t forget the basics because they continue to work, but if you want to branch out and be successful there are some great options that you’ve been overlooking. Below is a breakdown of the baits and equipment discussed in the video. The links go direct to Tackle Warehouse where you can see detailed photos, descriptions, and available colors for each item. We’ve also included some rod recommendations as well for some of our favorite night fishing combos when sensitivity is key.
