I went out last night hoping to target bass and walleye with big streamers after dark. I used big streamers but walleye and bass were hardly what I got! As the night settled in and the most wonderful cloud formations that were too beautiful to describe and too subtle to photograph floated over head, I began feeling bites that I typically associate with the whiskered species. Eventually I managed to hook one on a black circus peanut and was soon holding a croaking bullhead. A short time later I hooked a familiar face, a tailless fish from earlier in the year. As complete darkness fell two species of mayflies danced, one a size 12 light cahill look alike and the other a size 22 clear bodied three tailed fly. But the big carnivores didn't seem active, so I walked home under the cover of darkness.
