Fishing at night is a great way to have some great family fun, but to be safe and successful you need to have some underwater fishing equipment that is portable durable and safe. The technology has been around for a few years. No ifs,no buts,the bottom line is: underwater fishing lights attract bait fish.
Attracting bait fish to your night fishing location is vital to having a successful night fishing trip. Using night fishing lights can optimally up your chances to catch fish at night.
Folks one thing you need to understand is that night fishing lights are just a tool to increase the chances of having a successful night fishing trip. You still need to do some pre-planning for the species of fish you are going to target.
You still need to pick a likely habitat area where you can catch fish. Its been my experience that light fishing works best in waters that have very little current. Look for areas that you know bait fish frequent during the day. These areas are a great choice for setting up for the night.
One of the main reasons underwater fishing lighting works so well to catch game fish is because most of the game fish have a distinct advantage over the "food chain" at night. The "food chain" is attracted by the underwater light beam but they cannot react quickly enough to escape the game fish.
The reason Game fish have an advantage ,is because most of them can detect color at night. When fish can detect color at night they are able to detect light intensity and color contrast changes.
It has been known for sometime that fish, shrimp, and insects are attracted to light at night. But you probably are asking yourself what color is best at night if you are looking to purchase a submersible fishing light
? The answer to this question is the color blue or green because they attract both the food chain and the game fish.
When you look on line for fishing lights you are going to find two types of underwater lighting. One type we will not talk about is the land based commercial underwater lighting that is used primarily at boat docks and private residences.
We will concentrate on portable dc powered submersible night fishing lights.We have listed right below in priority what to look for when purchasing one of these lights.
1 High Intensity
2 Blue & Green lighting
3 Powered by a DC battery, and must be portable
4 Has long cables and good battery attachments to submerge to different depths
5 Durable And Waterproof at different depths.
Look on line and at some department stores for blue or green lights for fishing designed specifically to be submerged at different depths for night fishing. Do not purchase a light unless it is a high powered florescent light that has a wattage between 25-40, emits between 1-3 thousand lumens.
The cost range for night fishing fluorescents to be used for light fishing range between 160$ to 200$. You can find cheaper lights but they will not work as well.
It is a good practice to compare the different manufacturers of portable dc powered submersible fishing lights. Again, I would recommend you concentrate on light manufacturers that sell portable florescent lights which have between 25 to 40 watts of power in combination of a light intensity between 1000 to 3000 lumens.
You can find these lights that emit both blue and green light. And scientific data supports that these two colors work the best. Just remember when comparing prices that the lights you are comparing have the criteria we have listed here. Cheaper is not always better. Typically you can find a quality florescent for light fishing for between 160$ to 195$.
To end our article today we would like to emphasize that it is very important to compare different manufactures and suppliers of underwater fishing lights
underwater fishing lights. You more or less need to get the best bang for your buck.
Remember be careful because cheaper doesn't necessarily get you quality night fishing lights. To find more night fishing tips and techniques visit our website. You can also down load a free copy of "78 Fishing Discoveries Unleashed" e-book.
