I'll get this started with a little video shot in Michigan. Spork is determined to mouse up a big brown in our local rivers. With four trips under his belt his has yet to bring one to the boat.

We tried night fishing with big top water flies years ago on the Smith, in the Mirror Pool, in the Scum Sucker Pool (that deep pool/glide half way down the riffle area below the Mirror Pool), and in the Left Hander Pool (the next pool downstream, that shallow pool with deeper cervices towards the tail on the right descending side).  No Luck!!!  We did freeze our asses off; that is all I remember.

Plus, we'd stay late to see if we could catch the yellow spinner fall.  Again, frozen nuts, so we started referring to the futile exercise as waiting for the 'scrotum fall'.

PS:  Good luck with the twilight mousing.

A decade ago and before, I caught and kept.  Of all the years fishing for smallies, largemouth, trout, roanoke bass, there was only one occasion where a mouse was found in the stomach of a fish, and that fish happened to be a Roanoke. 99 percent of all items in all largemouth, smallies, and Roanokes were crawfish.  The trout tended to lean more towards hemlock needles (stockers), or chubs/stonerollers for wild browns and bows.

Vid is nothing more than some silly bro nonsense.

Blake Boyd specialized in night fishing on the SoHo some years back. Sadly I never went. Enormouse browns (every once in a while).

My dad is a taxidermist. And he has mounted a astronomical about of LMB. And the craziest things he has told me he has found are a baby muskrat and a duckling. The amount of soft plastics found in stomachs is mind blowing. I kept a slot redfish once that had 4 Gulp Shrimp bodies in it stomach.

I listened to that one about a month ago. It made me actually go home and tie a couple of big fuzzy flies to match the rodent hatch, but I haven't tried it yet.

Yep, that's the pattern. I bet it would juke some smallmouths, too.
