Fished during Saturday evening  on Lake Travis for whites, slabbing in 30 feet. Then at 9pm started working lighted boat docks with DD-22 cranks and X-Rap jerk baits in pearl white. Caught whites and bass. Then Glen hooks up on his PB, of coarse no camera! It was almost 24" long(Between 8-9lbs). Hit the DD-22 crankbait, where the light and dark water meets. I caught and released two bass over four pounds and several unders.

On Monday evening, we went back...but this time, I caught one at 23.5" long or about 8lbs. I also caught one over 5lbs and one around 3lbs. All off one lighted dock in 20 feet of water. Monday night, we had the Sony Hi8 Digital/Video camera. So, the catch and release were caught on video. The nightshot is in black and white but I got it on film.
I went to Walmart earlier in the day. I purchased a 2-pack of white pearl swimbaits from Creme Lure Company. They costed $1.19 for the pack of two. This was the bait I used to catch all the bass on. 2inch Pearl Paddletail Shad.

I bought some of those also and had been using them for a while before your post. Only caught a few on mine though. Until I took a SPIKE-IT chartruse dye maker and dyed the top half of the bait. It made a big difference. That's what I've been doing my best on.

It seems that the shad under lights are about 2inches or less.

Found this Night Time Bass Fishing Video by Doug Hannan is good too.

I could probably make one, if I can get a IR camera or nightvision setup. Lately, we have been catching a lot of 21 to 24" bass at night. (A lot definition to me is 3 to 5 per trip). Most are caught near midnight.

If fishing a bass tournament that starts at 6am in the dark morning, I would work a lighted boat dock first. You would be amazed at the quality of bass hanging out...IMO

Good Luck,
Robert

Come on Ranger you are giving all of my secrets away!

Really the 2 inch swims are my ammo at night out there. They are easy to cast in wind and you do not have to mess with treble hooks at night.

I buy the weighted ones from academy in clear olive with a paddle tale. BAMM!!!
