How I Prepare For Whipping At Night!

My LineDancer, Rapala Charge n Glow & Utility Lanyard Are Part Of My Night Arsenal!

I love the serenity of whipping "spin casting" at night. Less people around, hardly any traffic & it's cooler. The drawback? I force myself to stay awake the following day but totally worth it. So how do i prepare myself? I won't go into my leaders as i've done it many times before & i don't want to beat a dead horse. However i've never gone into how i prepare my gear ahead of time.

Since i've a lot of electronics i won't go into the charging of my lights to my video gear & night filming equipment. I don't have a list but rather separate equipment for day & night usage. Right down to separate video gear for both. Not sure when i'll have the time to go out. My dads funeral is this Wed so i'll be occupied before and after that for awhile. Would be nice to get my mom some tasty fish soon. During these Pandemic times it can be a pain trying to get fresh fish.

What i didn't show is what's in my insulated backpack. I put in 2 frozen water bottles, a sandwich & 2-packs of crackers. Also several large 2gal ziplocks for fish. Recently i've added a small umbrella.

I hope my pre-fishing procedures will help your game. Everyone is different. You don't have to follow me exactly but i can share with you what has worked extremely well for me. Be safe & good luck!
