Eric,
I like to use soft plastics. (ex. fin-s, storm wild eyez) They do well also, especially black. As for bait that is good anytime. Good luck out there this year.

I don't really think you can go wrong fishing plugs or bait at night.It's just a matter of your preference..Most of our Saltwater Gamefish here in NJ are noctural feeders.Meaning they like the cover of darkest to creep into the shallows looking for food,whether thats in the surf around the jetties or into the inlets and up the tidal creeks..Two key things you find at night is the fact that the water is alot more quiet,little or no boat/ski traffic or even bathers.Another factor is the bait presense around fixed lighted structures (bridges)especially in South Jersey.The bait gathers under the lights and Stripers,Weakfish,Bluefish & Fluke - KNOW IT !!!

I seem to catch more dogfish at night. It gets frustrating.

Caught a very large brown shark at night on July 4, last season, watched all of the activity in Sea Isle from my boat in the backbay.

i saw Steve Mckenna give a presentation over the winter on rigging sluggos. Very informative and after you actually watch someone rig them(w/ 2 hooks) it makes it a lot easier to do.

no fish bite at night ;) :D but if they did i think some plastic in "pink or white" would do the trick!! i mean thats what i hear anyway :D also make sure you are there around the turn of the tide be it low or high , just might find some fish waiting, good luck ,matt
