Out of curiosity, I read somewhere that halibut are nocturnal.
I was wondering if anyone be it commercial or sport fishing can tell me if halibut are more or less active during the dark hours. Do they move shallower? Any experience would be helpful.
I have never had any luck catching salmon at night in freshwater even though first and last light seem to be the best time. Do they bite in the dark in saltwater.
The point of these questions is I am trying to max out fishing time over the next few weeks and was looking into the late night possibilities as I have a few weekends where I have work related activities during the day.
I also have a set of underwater lights (3) that should produce roughly the equivalent of 250 watt halogen. Does anyone have experience anchoring in the bays with a powerful set of lights and noticed any additional activity in the water?
So anyone with experience at night think the lights will work to actually attract something in Whittier, Seward, or Homer??? If so for what? I am almost 100% sure they are gong to work amazing well in some of the lakes for rainbaows, chars, and lakers.
I have one of these: http://www.fishinglightsetc.com/MagnumLED.html
And I have two of these...
Mounted like this for my mini-x. Haven't changed over to the outback yet.
