i fish manhasset bay on the north shore and fished many of the docks that have lights at night. the bass sit in the shadow line and ambush the spearing that venture to close to the egde of the light. some nights u cane see 20lb fish just crusing back and forth. i usually use quater ounce bucktails all the way down to shad darts when the fish are finicky. throw the bucktail into the darkness and you will usually get hit when the lure comes into the light. good luck to all........ flybyme.
