I absolutely love night fishing. Its dark and quiet and you get it all for yourself. But when a 20 lb Northern Pike crashes your topwater lure (oversized jitterbugs and crazy crawlers are best I think) all that quietness goes away in a hurry. Big splashes and your drag getting ripped seem amplified by the still night as well as your feet hitting the side of your canoe as you try to keep balance while you get towed around the cove. The rush is unreal! I highly recomend trying it if you havent already. The best bite begins an hour or two before the first rays of light breach the horizon.
