Is this lure good in the evening? Have you ever asked yourself that question. Now, I don’t normally kayak fish later in the evening as it’s typically too dark to film. But I made an exception today and I’m sure glad I did. The lure? It’s a Z-Man Diezel MinnowZ Paddle Tail in the Purple Death color. I know, with a name like Purple Death it better be good in the darker evening hours, right? Or is it? Watch the video and let’s go see what we can catch!

The Backstory

So I took a quick trip to the marsh but it was much later than I normally go. I wanted to use a few lures in my arsenal that I hadn’t really tried yet and this was one of them. It turns out that this lure color did the trick and I’m going to use it whenever the lighting calls for it.

I also tested out a new microphone. I’m happy with the quality, although it was a fairly windy night and I don’t like the amount of wind noise that was making it through to the video. Please let me know what you think in the comments.

There’s really nothing more to say about this trip, although I don’t like being in the marsh in the dark! Too many gators. I’m just glad I didn’t run into one of them.
