i was just reading through some of the comments, and i noticed so many comments about how the bass move up at night. they just do not seem to do that here on table rock or any ozark area lake. could it be that the lake you are referring to have vegetation?? right now here on table rock, we are catching bass 25 to 30 feet deep at night. the daytime bite is about the same depth. now, that is not to say that someone catch a few up on the bank. you could do that during the day also. my point is that the majority of the bass are deep and do not move up. they might move in to the bottom near where they have been suspended during the day, bu they do not move up to a shallow depth.
perhaps the bass here in the ozark lakes do differently because of our lake types. but, i fished at night on lake falcon year before last in sept. we caught bass in the same areas that we did during the day, and at the same depth. only difference was the number of big bass.
just wish for some further clarification of bass moving up at night. from my experiences of night fishing here in the ozarks, the only time that the fish get up on the bank shallow at night is in the spring.
