Great Job Jazman!

Hey tell me, would a soft plastic still be useful for catching fish at night?

Fresh air, tight lines, scales, slime and fins, 'tis the salty sea dog life for me. Arrrgh!

Hi mike, soft plastics definately work at night, but it's important to consider that they are not as visible to the fish as during the day - so vibration and scent play a much bigger role. Try and use SPs which vibrate, eg. shad tails, and use a scent on your SP, or alternately use GULP SPs. A plastic I reckon will work really well at night is the GULP shakey shad - it has the scent of GULP and also a big shad tail to send out lots of vibrations :o

Nightime lures worked as topwater lures are better if black coloured since the hunting fish sees the lure from below in silouette against any moon or ambient light.
