If your gonna get in the water, a pair of light breathable waders is good. If it's warmer out you can live without the waders and just get wet.
I like a decent headlamp for light, and it does not hurt to have spare batteries and even a spare headlamp.

I never bring bug spray. If it's good and windy, I won't feel like I need bug spray and the fishing's usually better anyway. If it's not windy, and flying bugs bother you, you may want bug spray as stated above. If it's not windy, the headlamp attracts a lot of flying insects. Even the ones that don't bite can be somewhat annoying.

You'll need something to help detect activity on your rod tips. If the moon phase provides a fair amount of light, maybe some reflective tape near your rod tips is enough. I have a hard time at night seeing, so I'll purchase clip-on-lights at dollar tree store and clip them up high on my rods. Some folks like glow-sticks.

Don't throw any old bait, unwanted bait parts etc,  around the bank or water where you fish.. i.e don't give the snakes a reason to loiter near you. You may run across a few anyway.. I leave 'em alone and they seem to do the same for me.

If you can, get there a little before dark, so there's enough light to see what the bank and the water looks like.

If you step on something soft and squishy that feels like a fire ant mound, keep moving as it probably is a fire ant mount..

Other than that the same stuff that can prove useful during the day; a comfortable chair, toilet paper, fluids, snacks etc....

Just got off the lake during the thunderstorm and plenty of bites but no keepers.

Wear a long sleeve shirt for bugs, bring bug spray. An electric lantern and flashlights work fine. Plenty of snakes out at night but just walk slow and make noise.

Was a tough round fishing last week. Decided to take the jon boat and put out jug lines instead of the kayak and flyrods. Only caught one Channel Catfish that we let go. We know the Catfish are there; just got to keep at it… plus always good to recall past trips like the one where we caught a 33″ catfish jug lining (added a snippet of that trip to the video below as a reminder!) Tough Round Fishing Lavon...

Did make a trip to the Lower Illinois River in Oklahoma for some trout fishing. Caught several trout and other fish using an Olive Near Deere while fishing partner used a bubble float rig to catch them with Trout Worms. Only fished for a couple of hours before they started generating. Still a fun time and despite the high temps, the water was chilly while wet wading the river.

Will post a video of the trip later!

Was a tough round fishing last week. Decided to take the jon boat and put out jug lines instead of the kayak. Did see several kayakers and jon boaters, too! Had to use chicken livers instead of shad; no shad by the boat ramp area. Only caught one Channel Catfish that we let go.

I've taken my Kayak a few times out of Highland Park (it's close to the house.)  I've fished several spots around all the tree stumps.  I haven't had a bite.  Can anyone give me a little direction?  Thanks!
