Night Bite

Anyone seeing a consistent night bite yet?  Day fishing doesnt work for me with all family stuff, so moving to the night fishing shift (which i prefer anyway).  Just wondering if anyone has been seeing a consistent bite.  Spots i have tried have had really limited action after dark.

No night bite last pm except large bait.  Found some fish but they wouldnt commit.  Not sure we are there yet, but i generally start catching better fish at night starting around May 20th according to my records so it should pick up any day now.  That may be dependent on some consistent warmer weather settling in.

i fished 9-12, last pm.  Was not my favorite tide but we fish when we can fish.  I dont mind some tides this weekend so we will see.

Throw eels

That is my next thought. Was hoping some fish would be active with volume of pogies i saw last pm (not in bay).

Been doing well at night boys, now is the time. Last night managed to raise a couple almost keepers from 7p-10p on the outgoing. Many fat schoolies.

Nothing super exciting yet, it's been a slow pick of 20-30" fish for me most nights. Some schools of adult bunker have been cruising around though, so there's always a possibility of bigger fish lurking.
