    i would say either they couldnt "see" the line or for some reason the signal bouncing back to them resembled a bug for some reason.........

    We used to fish into the night and would quit if bats were out and we were using flyrods, since we thought they might go after the flies.

    As for the bass, that's a very impressive catch and cartainly proves animals grow bigger in the north. Where did you catch it? I did most of my fishing for smallmouth bass where the Stillwater joined the Penobscot in Orono. That was before the new dam flooded it, something I'm glad I never saw. When we didn't catch bass, we caught salmon. But why leave water flow free when it can be dammed to power big TVs, big ACs and big refrigerators.

    wow! Bass at night? Who knew? We always caught them in early morning or sunset but not at night.

    I caught a small bass like that once with a snorkel and net.

    I bet you had fun! I can't wait to go fishing again!

    His eyes were bigger than his stomach.

    I've actually seen a dead large mouth wash up on shore with another bass about half his size wedged in his mouth.

    Josh, go out on a pond or slow river at night with a fly rod and poppers (the lures, not the ...). If there isn't much moonlight, you fish by your sense of hearing and touch. It helps to have a full moon if wading, but it's a lot of fun until the insects (or bats) drive you back inside. I don't fish anymore, but that's a part of it I miss.
