Popper Bassin' at Night

Last night I was out late. Why? I intended to get up early in the morning, but when given a chance to fish for big bass on the kayak at night, I jump on that. So I did, and woke up at 9:30 this morning because of it.

What did I get for it? Pop...Pop...Pop... WHAM!!! Some chunky largemouth gave the 8 wgt. a work out and jumped like wild things in an attempt to throw the hook. Some succeeded, but in the cool of night under the watchful eye of the bard owls and coyotes I landed a 1lbr, a 2lbr, and a 3-4lbr. All formidable, good sized bass, the type of fish that make bass fishing fun.


  1. I love fishing at night. That sound of a bass (or whatever) exploding on a popper is so exciting. And addictive!

    1. Have you ever fished for stripers in the dark? As an East Coast boy I don't get to as much as I'd like, but it's like night bassin' on steroids.

  2. WOW, Nice catches! Nothing like being on the water when it's hot, dark and the fish are splashin. Nice size catches.
    Tie fish, write and photo on...
