I'm looking for some advice for nightfishing these lakes with lights. Should I use the coves, points, or open deep water? Minnows and/or worms or something else? Can lake trout be caught at night? What depths should I fish at and does that change throughout the year? Any advice or tips would be appreciated!

I Like to set up off main body points. Use 2 anchors if you can to keep you light as still as possible, and keep your bait a few feet under the light. This way they will not get tangled in the light and the gamefish will most likely attack from below. Its also not a bad idea to have a few more baits under floats 5-10 ft away, but watch them because they will swim towards the light. If you get board pitch a jerkbait around the point, you never know.

Im gonna try Nantahala this week I will let you guys know.
