At night with a light works very well. Bugs come to the light,minnows come for the bugs,crappie and other fish come for the minnows.

I wouldn't suggest trying it now. It's a tad bit cool for that I believe.

Yeah its alot of fun. I have caught way more crappie at night than I ever have during the day. Using a light to attract minnows works good for me!

if you can find a bridge that is over a creek channel. Those are great to fish off of at night. Just drop a minnow and watch and wait for the bite.

I put the light out and sit in the dark away from it.

I have fished for cappie at night all my life. My uncle started me out night fishing when I was just a kid. I did not even know you could catch them during the day until I was in my early twenties. \:\)

Haven't done it some time but it is a hoot. When I lived in Texas, that's about the only way we fished for them. We had a small Coleman grill/stove that we took in the boat along with some dead meat and such and we would stay out all night.

That is also a great method for stripes and troutfish type things. Big Bird and I went to Dale H. a couple years ago and wore them out. We caught one. But we had some great burgers and fries.

Anybody ever consider trying it on the lower end of the Caney?

Hmmm \:\)
