If you want to catch, weightless sluggo, slightly weighted sluggo, or weighted sluggo on a jig head. If a bass is not eating a sluggo its not eating anything else. lol

Really depends on what the fish are feeding on, where you are, what the structure is, current etc. Night you want to use anything dark colored black purple deep red blue. I like working super strike needles and bucktails with a trailer through the suds

As a night fishing googan (just started learning this year), does anyone actually catch in NJ on real darters (ss zig zag etc) and bottles?  Everything I read online says these types of plugs only work in places like mountauk with heavy current sweep, and my only success so far has come from jigs, bucktails, and minnow plugs.  Probably just don’t know what I’m doing, but I’d be interested to hear what types of environments and conditions people find bottles and darters work in NJ.

Both the darters and bottles work great in NJ, you don't need a heavy sweep but a current makes the plugs move.

I have to carry 2 SS darters and 2 SS bottles at night. Staples in my nighttime bag

This is how I feel about a bucktail with a mr twister. I throw other stuff just to see but rarely does anything get bit if the buck & twister doesn’t. (In the surf. Bay is sometimes different.)

No mention of twitch baits in this thread. Deadly at night, especially in moving water when bunker of any size are around including pnuts.

What do you consider a " twitch bait: bdowning??

Yo-Zuri 3D inshore twitch bait is one example. Theres a long thread on this subject elsewhere in this forum. 

Its the thread about gliders and how to work them.

Don't think it makes a huge difference, but I rotate between peanut bunker, mullet, and ghost shad.
