Yeah - not completely dark - there is artificial light involved - but darkness and distance casting with baitcasters is another reason they dont work for me

Yeah I had to stop using my baitcaster when a strong wind was coming from the left.....

- or right

- or head on

- also when casting lures under 10 grams further than 40m

- darkness proposed serious issues

- as did casting from spots with limited back swing.

- The small spool diameter, meant rapidly retrieving line while fighting a fish was an issue, compared to larger spooled spinning reels

- plus I found the ergonomics of fighting a decent sized fish with an unmodified baitcasting set up not to my liking.

So basically - the bait caster was a problem for me, nearly all the time
