So many people think fishing is just for the daylight. However if you have never tried trout fishing or any other fishing at night then you may want to put some thought into an experience that is new to you. Fishing at night can start a whole new adventure for yourself and anyone fishing with you.
When it comes to fishing of course we can see better in daylight so it seems the preffered time for fishing is in the daytime. The thing is if you have an understanding of where you will be fishing then you may want to give a serious effort to trying to catch some fish at night. The way you do things may be a little different because fishing in the dark can make things a bit more difficult.
Many people who fish at night actually report much better fishing then in the daytime. Another thing that seems to be forsure is bigger fish are usually caught while fishing at night. You will notice that the water at night is so tranquil, peaceful and undisturbed and that probably has a lot to do with the good fishing. Because of this the water takes on a completely different outlook. Its an outlook that seems favourable to night fishing. Its just a matter of getting your vision adjusted so you can see in the dark and then you can see how much different night fishing can be as compared to day fishing.
During the day fish are very keen and tend to hide from shadows, movement and noises that in any way startle them. At night because of the differences it seems they let down the guard some what. By doing this they become much easier to catch most of the time. At night fish are ready to feed so because of this chances are much better they will take the bait you are offering them. What this actually means to you is catching more trout or other fish at night. At night you even stand a good chance at catching fish in areas in the water that you wouldnt even consider fishing during the day.
You still need to be quiet while fishing at night. The fish will still get spooked and go into hiding if you are not careful. If you are caring a flashlight never shine it directly in the water. If you shine lights in the water you will quite quickly scare the fish away. Things can be a lot different during night fishing. You want to avoid tangles and snags by taking shorter casts. You want to make sure your casting techniques are up to par before trying to manoeuver your casts at night. Once again practice makes perfect.
When it comes to fishing at night you may want to take some precautions. Fishing at night can be a bit more dangerous so you may want to keep small children out of the loop. You only want people who are sure footed and ready to take on this new challenge. Remember too many people will end up making noise and scaring people away. This is something that needs to be avoided.
Just make sure you go with people that you feel are as like minded as yourself. Catching a fish at night will take some practice and patience but at the end of the day will be entirely worth it. The key is to keep on fishing and you will keep on catching. One thing that is guaranteed is that the first good night you have fishing will have you hooked and you will never look back.
