Night fishing in Sussex

continuing my education in lure fishing....!

I see posts (mainly from the west country and the channel islands) about lure fishing at night. I have caught caught bass on baits at night in the sussex area but given the poor water clarity here I feel that it would be an uphill battle to expect bass to find a lure in our murky waters. I know that sight is only one of the senses used by bass to find food but is it worth trying surface lures or even subsurface lures when visibility is generally so poor?

My biggest bass in Sussex have all come after dark. Some of them were a long time ago too. Don't rule out fishing anywhere where there is background light too especially when it is calm. Noisy topwaters in dirty water and quieter ones or shallow divers when it is calm. Fish them slow......
