    Yeah just throw a 1/8 ounce jig with a twister tail and reel it steady..Chartreuse and white are the colors I use..That will catch them at night no prob you'll feel it when they hit it..

    We actually catch more at night than in day time here during the summer months. Sabiki rigs and 1/8 ounce white curly tails. I put two on about 18 inches apart.

    Do you use either floating lights or submersible lights to attract them in and then use the sabachi rigs. I have never used them for bait but have always wanted to.
