hile Arizona-based pro, Josh Bertrand’s
day job as a Bass Pro Tour competitor
for Major League Fishing keeps him on the water all day long, many times his fun fishing starts
when the sun goes down.
Bertrand’s affinity for nighttime bassin’ has given
him much experience to hone his skills by the moonlight.
Here in his own words, he shares his tips optimize
THE RIGHT NIGHT
Picking the right night to fish is a big deal. I pay a lot of attention to the moons. I focus on full moons or bright moons, for a couple of reasons.
NAVIGATION: Obviously, the extra light by the full moon, makes it easier to move around the lake.
INCREASED ACTIVITY: When the moon pops out, the crawfish are more active, the bass are more on the move
and they just bite better.
