Nice pics and bass zziipp,   

Chez, I've had a few fish hit floating crankbaits after dark, specifically on the Susky.  I like to throw crankbaits in the evening when there is no top water action.  I'm usually wading and I leave my tackle bag on the shore.  Darkness comes and I'm still out there with the cranker.  I'd toss it out and left it drift a little and something smashes it, one time it was a huge channel cat.

Normally at dark I would tie on the jitterbug but the floating cranker sometimes works better. 

I also read an article a while back about guys that specifically use floating crankers after dark, slim shallow diving types.

I consider a wake bait a good replica bait fish lure that stays on top and no more than a ft down.at night must have rattles.like heddons bill dance series fishnimage or spitnimage that run less than a foot under surface with rattles inside.a wake bait stays on top and creates a v shape trail behind it.an injured bait fish swims high and as fast as it can when injured. A Manns baby minus 1 crank bait is a wake bait. Any lure you can reel on top and create a v behind.usually a Lil faster retrieve works best.

Ride on or just under surface and make a nice v wake behind it.I like blk blue purple tops with white bellies or firetiger patterns with orange or yellow bellies.I prefer rattles.

This is really cool, I have never heard anyone talk about a wake bait in fresh water. Chez is right, a jitterbug is a type of wakebait, but I think zziipp is referring to a swimming plug at or just below the surface. In salt water we use metal lip swimmers with the lip bent almost straight down to get them to swim on the surface. Very deadly at night when cranked slow. I have tried to do it for largemouths with rapalas, but do a poor job of it. Tough to bend a plastic lip. I wonder how a rapala would do with a flat-ish jitterbug type lip.

This reminds me of a Dry Mouse (deer hair) usually used at night for big brown trout but bass love them.  I too use the jitterbug mainly when fishing at night with top water.  Sometimes they demolish it, other times not so much.  Maybe on those slower nights a more delicate presentation is the key.

I have a few of them jitterbugs and still have yet to catch a fish on one. A deerhair mouse though... caught lots of bass on them. You flip them in tight under a overhanging tree and make it flop loudly, then strip it back in quick short jerks and the big bass will slam it.

How many times you use em spider once. I can't believe you've never got one on a jbug at night.I hate when they short strike em one after another and even when you stop it they miss it lol drives me crazy. That's a good time to pull out 0 thru 1 ft cranks or take bill dance fishing.lol. them bill dance ride right on the surface and they swim good and with the rattles in em they can be deadly at night.the paint and graphics are exellent on them.I started using them late last yr. And they quickly got added to the arsenal.I always carry jbugs,shallow cranks,a couple floating rapalas,torpedos,chug bugs,and wake bait style lures for night time bass.a Zara spook or 2 at times but they don't come near the others in producing on my spots.
