    We I never have sometimes with a light you can catch them I just think they use there vision to see the worm and at night they can see if not at all. IMO Plus they know Mr Flathead is looking for them.

    They usually quit bitting when the sun goes down here. Now bass are a different story.

    We catch alot of them once the sun goes down. We fish around docks usually. Just take a little piece of worm and a split shot above the hook and stay as near the surface as you can. They will sit there and wait for bugs to land on the water, especially if the dock is lighted.
