What should i eat at night when fishing?

Carrots, peppers, broccoli, apples, or dried fruit are good snacks for fishing. If you're in a hurry, stop by the store and pick up a box of fruit that's already cut up. Like oatmeal, whole wheat bread is a great source of fiber and complex carbohydrates that will give you that boost of mood and energy you'll need for an entire day of fishing. Make yourself a protein-rich chicken sandwich and you'll have enough energy to start your day off right.

In southern states that enjoy fairly mild winters, night fishing can be good for catfish and carp, as well as for bass and panfish on moonlit nights. Kupferman says that if you only fish once or twice a month, make that experience fun; your “cheat days”, so to speak.

Not only is night fishing a foreign concept for many anglers, but they also don't know what species of fish to pursue.

Catfish and carp bite all day and all night long, but the best time of day to catch them seems to be at dawn and especially at dusk. The striped bass, although it is a vision-guided fish, is very shy in the light and is best caught on dark nights with little moonlight in the sky. There are many fish that rely heavily on sight to find food and are handcuffed by the darkness most nights.

Water temperature and available light sources are the main drivers of many fish during the summer at night. There are many ways to make night fishing safer, such as arriving at your fishing spot before sunset, making sure you're wearing a life jacket, and using a flashlight to illuminate the boat.

They have specially designed eyes that allow them to see much better at night than tarpon, fireflies, perch and other fish they try to eat.

The light also attracts insects that can feed fish, but they can also attract mosquitoes that you'll have to deal with. Knowing the best times and seasons for marlin fishing in Costa Rica helps fishermen plan great fishing trips. This can be an advantage when it comes to fishing at night and having to stay awake if, for example, you have to protect your rods. If you want to fish for yellow perch at night, I recommend that you focus on fishing at sunrise or sunset and only on full moon nights.
