    This year im trying something different im gonna retate between day fishing, morning fishing, and the all loved nights. i'm also gonna keep track of how we did and what we caught (or not) any variation i can find in order to select the perfect time and location to fish. Does anyone else intend to fish other then night? if so how have you done? the thing is we put tooo much time into this to watch a nicen munch on a basketball instead of my tasty tasty blugills:)

    I fish alot during the day on the Red River in North La. My son and I will fish around jetty's for Bream and I will always put a couple of lines out for cats. I prefer to fish at night, especially in the summer, to get away from the jetskis and/or pleasure boats running up and down the river. Some people are courteous, but some of them have no buisiness on the water.

    If i get out its usually right after work(get off of work at 2:00) so im on the river at about 3 or so and fish til 11 and have great luck especially when it gets close to night fall as the sun is going down the fishing heats up
