Light Fishing Will Catch Fish At Night

Light Fishing Will Catch Fish At Night
 Attracting bait fish to your night fishing location is very important. I have had my best success at night using quality submersible light for fishing. This technology has been around for years but very few fisherman use it. If you use a quality underwater light for fishing you will be surprised at how many bait fish you will attract near your night fishing setup.
Just submerging a fishing light anywhere won't catch you any fish. You still have to do some pre-planning for the type of fish species you plan on targeting for the night. You will still need to find a likely habitat area.
Underwater fishing lights have worked best for me when I find an area with little current. I usually try to set up near areas where I have seen the type of bait fish that the fish I want to target like to eat. Usually a good habitat area for any species of fish will be near a easy food source.
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.
Game fish such as crappie and walleye and many others are active night feeders because they have very good night vision and can see color contrast and the can distinguish between different light intensities very easy.
If you plan on going light fishing look for either a blue or green fishing light that can be submerged under water. Many small baitfish, shrimp, and insects are attracted to lights at night but they do not have the acute night vision that many game fish like crappie and walleye do.
There are two types of commercial underwater lighting that you can purchase, but we will not discuss the land based systems used primarily at boat docks. We will concentrate on portable dc powered submersible lights used for fishing. When you go to purchase one of these lights here is what to look for in priority order.
  • 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 depth

  • 5 Durable And Waterproof at different depths.

  • Its best to use a high powered Florescent light, The best use 25-40 watt lamps that emit about 1-3 thousand lumens per tube. Costing $160-$200, they are available through the internet, sport stores and catalogs.
    It is a good practice to compare the different manufacturers of portable dc powered submersible fishing lights. Again, I would recommend you concentrate on light manufacturers that sell portable florescent lights which have between 25 to 40 watts of power in combination of a light intensity between 1000 to 3000 lumens.
    You can find these lights that emit both blue and green light. And scientific data supports that these two colors work the best. Just remember when comparing prices that the lights you are comparing have the criteria we have listed here. Cheaper is not always better. Typically you can find a quality florescent for light fishing for between 160$ to 195$.
    Well folks that ends our article today. Just remember to make sure and compare manufactures before you make your final decision to purchase submersible fishing lights, and other night fishing equipment.
    Cheaper is always not the best choice. If you want to find more useful night fishing tips and techniques visit our website. Also don't forget to get your free "78 fishing discoveries unleashed"  e-book.
