    Well with the new Bass season almost upon us, it had me thinking of the “Dark” side of bass lure fishing.

    It will be around 3 years now since I was first introduced to fishing for bass with lures after dark.

    At first I was very sceptical, It wasn’t the fact of fishing after dark, after all I have fished many years for Cod and other species after dark.

    But fishing in the dead of night with lures for bass surely this wouldn’t work.. or would it.

    I must admit to have been given some good information which gave me confidence to give it a go, although in my mind I was far from convinced after all how would a Bass see my lure.

    Tis good fun, I fancy getting out on the kayak on a still night with the surface lures. Now that would be fun :yes:

    tried it Sam, although without the moon. not at all easy on a cloudy dark night with a small swell :no: oh & I also tried it from the shore & did catch some bass but miss judged the small pool which turned out to be 6ft deep :hurt:

    The thing is Glenn for me the fish dosent have to see the lure the lateral line on the fish is their eyes when its pitch black , pulses , twitches coming
    from the movement of the lure are like a magnet to them , also im of the opinion when a bouncey ball is used the disturbance the ball creates
    interest from the fish

    I would fully agree. We too often liken a fishes sensory system to our own. Its sense of smell, feel and what it sees has to be highly tuned, its life depends on it. If its getting hungry it cant just nip down morrisons for a can of tuna, it has to go out and hunt its tea down.
