Most of the time we are pulling Mojo Rigs and umbrella rigs. The live bait is really our last resort. Never really fished for them at night, but will have to try. That is when I would try to pull the live bait. Large Bucktail Jigs and spoons are the best. My moto is the Bigger the better....!

The dam is about 20minutes away from the house. I usually get a wild hair sometime during the week to head out there and spend the majority of the night on the water.
My biggest has been a 23lb'er. I caught it on a spoon in the middle of a school of herring in late January. It was freezing out there and I ended up catching that one and one 4lb'er the whole day. It was well worth it though.
I usually use live herring, but occasionally I break out the tackle box and throw some lures at them. What do you guys use where you go?
