Swimmer/Teaser Combo Getting It Done After Dark

This keeper hit a pearl colored
Daiwa SP Minnow.
This schoolie hit a black
Deceiver fly used as a teaser.
Nighttime fishing has turned surprising good recently and has been far more consistent than the daytime fishing. I've gotten 27 bass while fishing after dark the last two nights. A good number of those have been either keepers or near keepers.  The biggest has gone over twenty pounds. All of these fish have been taken on the same lures.  I am using a swimmer/teaser combination.  The hot swimmer has been a Daiwa SP Minnow in a pearl color.  The hot teaser has been a homemade all black Deceiver fly. The teaser is knotted onto my swivel at the top of a leader of about two feet.  The swimmer has accounted for most of the larger fish while the teaser has tended to catch smaller fish.  With big numbers of bay anchovies around, the Deceiver teaser is a good choice to use as an additional fish catcher.
