As of late, I have not been able to fish during the day as much as I would like, but it’s all good in the hood. The bass have been extremely active right at sunset, and this is when I am able to fish. I’ve been starting out with top water…poppers…todds wiggle worm…and any other type of insect I see hatching. I have been very successful with todds wiggle worm in the chartreuse. It has produced the most top water action out of all of my top water flies.
When it get’s too dark. I’ve been switching over to my baitcaster and throwing a buzzbait, swim jig, chatter bait, or just a reagular spinner bait. There is just something awesome about fishing in complete darkness, and reandering your vision useless.
What is your favorite sunset fly/lure? …and what is your favorite night fly/lure?

Night fishing never seems to work for me. My best times are about an hour before dark.
I have been doing a lot of night fishing for bass myself lately. On conventional my favorite is a jitterbug, hard to beat that classic.
Nice shirt. I have the \”clay\” color. Keep working that fly rod!
I usually have my best luck at that time, too. I just love fishing into the night, though, I feel that's when the big ones are on the prowl, because, they feel safe with the darkness.
The jitterbug is definitely a great choice for the night time. Slow top water action that is sure to stir up some bass. Top water is my favorite!
Awesome! I have it in orange and in the lime green. It's seriously the most comfortable shirt I own. Love the soft cotton! Always the fly rod get's used 85 % of the time, and is my go to!
