So, I'm officially I die hard, and went out again last night 10:30pm-3am to the DR for some night action from shore. After going out Monday and for the first time in a few weeks not seeing an 'eye caught, I got two eaters last night, while my buddy got one, which was a little larger than the ones I got (all fish were probably <2lbs.). Again, fished east of the Ambassador Bridge, including a spot that has been fairly good to me the last two weeks

Close to the breakwalls (in the right spots!) seem to be productive of late.

My two came on a perch coloured diver, while my buddy's came on an unpainted jig (1/4 oz) and Gulp! Alive minnow (white). I also caught a very nice LM (around 2lbs--good for me) and lost something that very would could have been my biggest fish EVER! Kind of bummed me out after losing whatever it was, but I had a good night anyway. My buddy lost what appeared to be a wally bringing her over the rail/wall. Very good night of shore fishing indeed!

Around 2:30 am we saw a fox struttin' his stuff right down by the water on the path. Crazy to see one so close to residential areas, and we tried to avoid it, thinking it could be rabid.

It has been another great year for the eyes.
Do you guys ever just drift minnows under bobbers for them? Don't know how crowded it is etc. but seems like it wouldn't hurt to set one up that way or a drop shot while casting another rod.

From shore, only 1 rod is allowed in Canada. I have no doubt that that would work (especially on some of the finicky ones I've seen, but won't bite anything), I just prefer to be more active/interavtive while I fish. Plus, with lures, it keeps the crap fish from hitting. We do get a handful or rock bass, but that's pretty much it. Good fish, otherwise. When I go late it isn't very crowded at all (which works well for me, that's when the bite is on!), so casting/trolling the breakwalls is never an issue.

LOL, yeah, THAT side!
Your side looked MUCH calmer last night with that north wind. Clearly, I can't complain though...
