catching bait before sunrise
I have been a few times just before sunrise out in the east pass trying to catch bait and come up empty everytime until the sun rises up. Is it just me or does the cigars and threadfins don't bite until its daylight?

Is your sonar showing bait balls under your boat when searching for bait? If you are using a sabiki rig to catch bait before sunrise then I'm thinking your going to need to tip the hooks for small pieces of bait; and if the rig has glow-in-dark beads, it should help to have them glowing.
I have bait fishes strike a bare hook; but that is during the day.

It does seem like bait bites better after sunrise. It sometimes seems it gets the best a couple hours later.

The main reason for the sabiki not working til' there's some sun is that the sabiki reflects the sun. The sabiki looks like a small shiny bait or bait fish reflecting the sun and if there's no flash they won't eat it. The glow in the dark kinda helps but only to a degree.
