Night fishing is an exhilarating pastime for many avid anglers — the mystery and unknown adventure draws more people to set sail after dark. When you hook something on your line, is it a record-breaking trophy catch or an old boot from the deep? The thrill of nighttime fishing along with that necessary escape from the blazing summer heat is what encourages more individuals to try it. By casting your line at dusk or dawn, you even have better odds of catching fish.
Night fishing is an endeavor like no other, and you need the right tools and equipment for the best results. Next time you launch your boat as the sun dips below the horizon, make sure to bring several hands-free lights along.
Best Types of Lights for Night Fishing
You need the best tools for the most successful night fishing trip, including a rod, reel, lures and a variety of light sources. These products make performing basic tasks easier and safer, so you don’t have to juggle a dim hand-held device while tying knots, unloading gear and untangling lines. Specialty lights can even draw impressive sport fish closer to your boat.
Next time you take your boat out, have the best odds of catching a massive river or lake monster with these lights:
- A headlamp or lighted hat: Keep your hands free to finish important tasks such as unloading your boat, navigating to that prime fishing spot and properly reeling in fish with a powerful hands-free lighting device, including a headlamp or lighted hat.
- Hands-free boat lights: Another great option to free up your hands while night fishing is installing several hands-free flashlights around your boat. Flashlights can often produce more powerful lighting than just a headlamp and operate independently from each other to preserve battery life.
- Lights for attracting fish: While it may initially seem like lights would scare away the fish, bright, colorful lights actually attract fish and bait to your boat. Green lights attract bugs and bait fish, which will attract predatory fish to your lines. Submersible and floating lights are the best products for attracting fish — use them for any type of fishing in fresh and saltwater environments, from the boat or on the dock.
- Installed boat lights: If headlamps and a few flashlights don’t produce quite enough light, consider installing several LED lights on your boat. Make sure to find ANSI-rated lights that can be submerged for at least 30 minutes for the most effective long-term lighting. For the best visibility to see colors more realistically and to better stand out, install blue boat lights.
