How can anyone catch fish at night

Bite times when fishing

Morning and evening hours are the most exciting time for every fisherman on the water. However, there are fish that bite very well in the middle of the day or night.

Twilight is the best time to go fishing

Unless there are large fluctuations in temperature and air pressure, most fish become really active and voracious at dusk. Be it non-predatory or predatory fish, active at night or during the day - they all get on at dusk before it gets dark or the sun rises.

As a transition period between day and night, twilight is very popular under water. For example, while the non-predatory fish wake up from their resting state with the first rays of sunshine and get hungry, the predators take advantage of the hour by stalking their prey in hazy light conditions. In the evening the game is repeated accordingly.

Nocturnal and diurnal fish

Although most fish species are active during the day, there are also nocturnal fish that have acquired special skills in the course of evolution. These enable them to get along very well even in the middle of the darkest night. Knowing which fish are active at what time helps every angler to adapt his equipment and fishing method to the target fish in order to achieve good catches during the day or at night.

In the following table we present a list of native fish species with information about their best bite times. These are guide values ‚Äč‚Äčthat are particularly important if there have been no major fluctuations in temperature and air pressure over several days. In view of the fact that all anglers constantly try to assess the weather conditions realistically, one still catches a fish that one did not expect or vice versa - if nothing bites, although the weather is ideal. Nature is simply much more complex than any weather forecast.
