Night Time Bass Fishing

In the heat of the summer in many parts of the country, bass fishing during the day time can be brutal.  With air temperatures that can rise well past the 100 degrees mark in the shade, it does make for a good time on the water.  In many lakes, ponds and even rivers, most bass have made transitions towards deeper and cooler water.  Fishing offshore structures put us, the angler right out in the middle on the lake with no protection from direct sunlight.  During these times, I have found night fishing to be a great alternative to battling the scorching sun.
