I've avoided these for a long time. But I recently started fishing nighttime tournaments, and my bright white compartment lights are blinding at night - really jacks up your night vision. I started thinking it would be nice to get just a few blue LED's mounted around the front deck to allow me to see everything while it's pitch black out, but still maintain my night vision.

I don't want to do green or red, even though those would probably be best for maintaining my night vision. I don't want someone (including Game Wardens) confusing them with my bow lights. I'd like something with a dimmer switch so I can keep the glow to a minimum. Not looking for "bling" here - Looking for functionality while I'm out on the water fishing on the front deck.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

All the best,
If at first you don't succeed, buy newer / better equipment!

I had blue ones, green ones, then tried multi colored ones......they are ALL TOO BRIGHT to fish with.

Best bet is to use a StreamLight head band light.

I had Steve @ R U Lit install these for me! Comes with a dimmer switch.

I added these from blue water led. Inside lights are on a dimmer, outside are black lights to see my lines better.

In my Mako w/ T-top i have 2 lumitec Caprera2 dimable spreader lights. They switch from blue to white and are dimable, but wont work in a bass boat-type setup.

For my aluminum boat I bought the white led strips off amazon

and spread them throughout the inside of the boat. They are not blinding and put out just enough light.
