Well, I got a chance to hit lake Weir at night this weekend. We started out around the east shoreline fishing shakey head jig's and rattletraps. Caught a few dink's and a jack fish. After the sun went down we headed to a few brush pile's we know of and it was on!!!! First cast a 3lber. Then a couple dink's, then I hooked into a hog. I was fishing a 'Bluegill Pepperstick'. 3/4oz bullet weight and just dredging through the brush. She hit like a dink and I set the hook. She still felt like a little fish until she got up to the boat then she turn in on! Under the boat and around the motor. My partner is half blind in the dark and couldn't find the net so I horsed her in with my 'Deep South Fishing Rod' (all purpose) and I've got to tell you that it really impressed me. Got her in the boat for picture's and released her 8lb-14oz. Caught 9 keeper's all together. Just goes to show you that even a play lake like Lake Weir can come alive after the jet ski's and play boat head home!!!
