Hey KidCrappie. I have never crappiei fished at night but this hot weather got me thinking about it. All I have heard about night fishing they guys stay still around a light source. You are talking about trolling as normal just black lights to show your lines correct?

Ray I have had little sucess sitting still. I am planning on slow trolling.Using the black light to light my lines and the tips of my poles so I can see the bites. One eye on GPS and sonar and the other on the lines. I spoke with John Woods this morning and we think it will work on some waters better than others.

At night sitting still under a light is a good way to go. Presenting the bait is the hard choose. Jigs, live bait under a cork or both. Some times just a minnow with a small bb size weight can be counted down until you find the hungry fish. Just getting out there and spending time enjoying fishing and life is the most important part.

I have never thought about slow trolling at night. I have fished a submerged light source and done really well on jigs and minnows. however, hot or not, if it happens after dark, I usually opt out as I like to go to bed early. Good luck though and I would like to know how it works.

A method of keeping fish alive after they have been caught. A string or small nylon rope is threaded through the mouth and gills of a fish and is then tied off to the boat or dock allowing the fish to remain overboard in the water but preventing them from swimming away. With the advent of livewells and other more modern methods of keeping fish, stringers have become nearly obsolete, but can still be quite handy when fishing from the bank of a pond. The term 'stringer' is also used by anglers to indicate the size of their catch for the day (10-pound stringer = 10 pounds of fish).
