KQT and I did some night fishing last night. The green tube worked great. Limited out on sand bass.

The light put out about a 30 ft arch of light and we were surrounded by bait in the tens (hundreds?) of thousands. The video does not do it justice.

it's amazing isn't it...the strip lighting down both sides of my boat does the same thing after about an hour...more bait that you could possibly count...

and to me it comes in stages...first...bugs come to the light and hit the water...then the little minnows come which draws the bigger minnows and shad....then the predator fish show up...this all takes about an hour for me...

Tried one of those floating white lights for the 1st time on lewisville a few nights ago and didn't get any. After about an hour all we had was a few ghost minnows and the occasional shad. Do you think the green light works better? What lake were you fishing?

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.

That is amazing. I've always heard that the green light wave lengths penetrate the water better than white light.

green may very well be better, any light will draw baitfish, and then bigger fish, point being green light not magic, get a light in the water and you can accomplish the objective, now whether you catch fish, that is why it is called "fishing"!

Was on the Coast this past week; saw a lot of fish activity under green lights while waiting for a table at a restaurant. Lights were part of the restaurant's dock. Looks like they work in saltwater, too! Video clip

I've purchased several of the $20 ones from academy they work great its just they are not solidly built. I just cant justify paying $100-200+ for one of the "professional" lights. Has any one here tried the LED strips that you can attach to your boat? They seem to be very cost effective.
