Default Evening bite?

I usually find the bottom fishing as well as trolling the pass for kings to slow up considerably mid-morning. Do they feed much around sunset again or is it pretty much only in the morning at sunrise when there's aggressive feeding?

I've gone out twice in the past 2 months in the evening after work to hit the Liberty and results were blah and I didn't even see other boats out there at all. I have however caught several kings in the late afternoon time frame near Destin. I'm not doing anymore evening fishing in the near term, takes alot to rush out of work, launch the boat, catch nothing and then have to clean the boat that night.

A lot of the larger Red Snapper are nocturnal feeders, as well as, a lot of other species. Even though one wreck may not be producing; you got to find where large schools of bait are, and also where fish are actively feeding. Research it if you want.

caught our best snapper after the sun went down the other day and we've done well in the middle of the night before.

I have had a lot of success in the afternoons and evenings. As far as kings a pink strech magnum or some other pink diver and I have caught kings until I got sick of them, troll just off shore between the mass and the barges and you will catch king and spanish until you are blue in the face. Also if you are not in a peak feeding time starting chumming and all of the sudden every snapper within 5 miles of you will come running, everybody love a free buffet! Good luck and tight lines!

Bottom fishing is no doubt the best in the morning and the evening, you might as well hang it up during miday. There are other issues to consider when fishing at night as well. The strength of the current is critical as well as the moon (full moon vs no moon). But to answer your question--I dont waste my time fishing miday when it comes to bottom fishing.
