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!
