can you throw tin at night? i have a hopkins, kastmaster and deadeye dick.
if no luck with one of these, would you throw one of the other two or switch to another lure?
how many of you actually put on a pork
trailer when using a bucktail?
i have a knockoff small black bronco bag
i put the above tins in the outside pockets and the hooks keep getting caught in the material used to finish off the top of the pockets. i was thinking of putting duct tape along the top but i would rather get some suggestions.
after fishing, i rinse off the rod and reel and then wipe them off with a dry rag. anything else i should do?

Of course you can throw tin at night! But it requires light to reflect off the surface, so it won't be all that productive in the dark! Some tins have a little tube-tail on a single hook. They are a reasonable approximation of a sandeel, so if you have a tube, the tin might as well be painted black, it is just weight to deliver the tube.

Bucktails are a better bet, and YES, I wouldn't throw one without some kind of dressing. Porkrind, Plastic worms, Squid...they all work.

If I had ONE lure to use at night, it would probably be a Black Bomber B-16A. They are light, and don't cast all that far, but they WORK.

Bucktails work 24/7, you could do worse.
