Night fishing the flats

Hey guys ,I was going to wade fish a bit tonight and wanted some opinions on go to artificials. I've always heard darker plastics at night and maybe some top water. I was going to use a glow shallow bait buster to start. Any other suggestions?

    Dark lures at night only if there is some sort of ambient light; lots of moonlight, dock lights and such. If there is almost zero ambient light, you're better off going with something that glows a little bit.

    Don't know about night, but had probably 70 trout last week on an 1/8 oz Chartruese Doa jig head with the 3" glow swim shad. As long as the tide was running the trout were relentless. Pearl white worked too, that may play out with this full moon.

    Thanks for the heads up Grateful. I didn't even end up going out due to unexpected new baby duties. Thanks for all the input!
