After reading Clutch_Kick's post on rod construction, seeing MartinB's advice, and the pics all you guys have posted my urge for fishing exploded. Yet this time would like to focus on spinning as neve gave it the effort it really requires. Yet I need some opinions and advice.

Since the only time i have to fish is evenings, and am afflicted by the personal problem of always returning to the same fishing spot, I would like to explore possibilities of night spinning in different areas.

Wanted to ask, what places are best (not locations as i know they are sensitive  Roll Eyes, but environment types - port, shallow water off rocks, deep water of rocks, beaches, etc..)
Lures: will the smaller ones do the trick? (some 14-20g lures including the x-raps, poppers, and maybe the deep diving ones for ports? Or some bigger/heavier ones for rocks?)
The light in ports is helpfull, or should i avoid them?

One last thing, has anyone tried the Shimano Inchiku Jigs? can they be used for spinning?

I really need to get back onto fishing - to much s**t happened latley and to much studying is not doing me any good  Undecided Cry  Embarrassed

le dont get me wrong (ax the way i wrote the comment might be misunderstood) - the acca, from what i gather is a constant battle until the exams and then after the exams it takes you three weeks to get back into your senses.

When you are doing either mba or acca the one sure result is that fishing goes out the window  Sad work, family, studies and as usuall one has to reduce the things he likes best. Hence the resolution for 2010 has to be to keep the fishing going at least once a fourthnight. X'tahseb

mela ....

 .... if you're taking up spinning to rekindle your fishing fever good luck lol.  You really need to persevere a lot.  However, spinning can be a very rewarding technique if and when the fish come.  Needless to say I haven't caught a single fish worthy of note, in a very long while, but who cares!  This hobby to me is all about spending time alone, getting in touch with nature.  Infact whenever I can I practice catch and release.

If you are going to spin at night, you might be in for a surprise, some seriously good prey can be had during night spinning.  Although it is not the best way to start spinning, do not give up, try it anyway.

At night try to stick to Medium gear, with shallow action minnows and surface lures, like WTD's and poppers. Also another tip, as opposed to what many people beleive, darker colours are better at night.

Persevere, persevere, and persevere!!

Persevere, persevere, and persevere!!

This 100%! Shallow action minnows (e.g crystal minnow etc) with dark colours work can 'miracles' at night/pre dawn conditions  Wink
As for Persevere,persevere,persevere..this is the fishermans/spinner's mantra  Grin Or at least mine at the moment,esp seen as though ive totally blanked the last couple of sessions..
Or rather maybe my new mantra should be
Waiting for decent weather,waiting for decent weather,STILL waiting for decent weather,etc...bloody wind!!!  Angry

even i never tried dark lures as i never fancied them ...... but this could be a big lesson!

i remember fishing nights in birzebbuga port just under the freeport terminals and used to have such dark lures (some of them were the only available at that time) and they did good catches on spnott and barracudas.

thanks clutch kick and Martin for sharing ...
