Green lights are better, I don't know why. I have use them for years on the coast and they just draw in all kinds of baitand we have caught everything from trout to tuna. I am old enough to have experienced using Coleman lanterns at night. You would have to draw in bus to get bait fish. With the green lights you don't get many if any bugs. As for the lake I will tell you it was local. I was taught the technique many, many, many years ago by a friend and I just can’t give up the location he showed me, not fair to him. I will say I have had similar results on three other lakes known for sand bass here in the DFW area. Tarponfly is a pro with green lights and posted the results many times in the past. I see from his post he is tearing them up during the day and so I guess he does not need to go at night. He may know why they work so well.
