How do you guys mark your line or lures when retrieving to tell that its coming close to the end of the rod?Do you attach a glow bead or two on or above your leader to help see when it's time to start a figure 8 in the dark?

Many use a glow bead on their leaders for night fishing. Stealth Tackle would be a good site to visit as far as specialty leaders go & probably the best out there right now as far as flouocarbon leaders for musky fishing go. Again a google search of stealth tackle will probably give you the results your looking for.

Personally, I slow my presentation down. I use a steel leader, no glow bead, fish a lot of contrasting blades, (silver/white) or silver blades & rely on feel, & if lighting allows, seeing a white twister tail. Crankbaits, usually can feel/see them coming in. Gliders, much the same, & topwaters nothing required. Big slow & steady circles at the boat.

Hope that helps...Silvia

I tried the stealth leaders with the glow beads. After a while though yours eyes adjust and you don't need them. It's amazing how well you can see in the middle of the night once your eyes adjust. I think night fishing is so much fun because it brings your senses of feel and hearing into play, more of an intimate musky experience. Some of my favorite muskies I caught by myself in the middle of the night. Just stay safe and have the release tools organized.

Haven't fished that often, but the times I have...very cool! There's a couple of baits that glow in the dark ...that's pretty cool too, seeing them come thru the water in the dark! I haven't experienced the "ultimate experience" of catching a muskie at night. That would be very cool ,and on my "Bucket List" of things to do , before the Erbs come later this year!
