I've never caught one at night, but then, I've not targetted them either. If you fish at twilight with spinners you should still pick them up easily as they have very good sight, but with nightfall and twilight, comes their predators - bass. Its typically just as its gone past what you'd call comfortable light when feathering for them to continue fishing that they tend to go. I think they also drop further down in the water too and recede out to deeper waters. I wouldn't be too suprised if at last light with bait, you might take a few fish off the bottom as the fish head out, but its not the best tactic. Stick to fishing in daylight in calm seas with reflective or highly visible small lures / feathers and you won't go far wrong.

Don't know if it makes a difference as i always use them at night, Hawkeys with luminous beads for cod, mackeral and pollock. Have caught all of the above on Hawkeyes at night.
