I caught several Barracudas after sunset but never stayed longer than midnight, though I am sure you can also catch them later. I used lures running close to surface and retrieved them much slower than during the day. A good idea is to fish in the areas (harbour etc.) where you have some light and use baits which are reflecting best.

Just my (limited) experience. Would also like to hear some ideas of more experienced Maltese fishermen.

Tight lines,

All good but in my opinion, darker lures like the rapala clown works better during the night than highly visible lures - Rememer cuda at night tries to catch fish which are very limitedly visible. Fish mostly relies on its smelling and vibration (sound) sensitive senses.

I agree with you Granitu, though I would consider the Rapala Clown to be quite a visible lure. The colour of the lures I am using is not bright, my favourites are greenish and greyish, but they are reflecting the light, especially when doing jerk moves.

for my experience if the fish want to bite it will bite on anything  and will bite on black red and other colors and tested my self and when they don't want to you just have follow ups and at night the worst time to go fishing is on a night of full moon waste of time hope this well helps a bit

And some fishermen told me that a night of a full moon is very productive for barracuda....

rule then when it's full moon go and have a try then let me know that's all i can say but let me tell you this i don't know if you know that sea water have lot of florescent in it (fosfru ) and when it's full moon the fish can see also fish line with it and barracuda and seabass relay a lot on there eyes not like other fish the sense the vibrations in the water  ?

My experience with barracuda fishing in the Canaries is that night fishing is very productive in full moon and choppy sea. The barracuda love the yellow colour!
Here is one on rapala max rap 17 from Fuerteventura:
