Gonna install some deck lighting on my rig to be ready for summer night fishing. I am conflicted between the blue and white lights. The blue look cooler but I have concerns they won’t provide the same amount of lighting for rigging up baits and such. The white may be worse on night vision. Anyone out there have an informed opinion on this?

I've had blue for several years. I actually had to cover about half the strips with electrical tape because they are too bright. I did put white in the lockers and glad I did. Two things I would have done different: I would have put a dimmer switch on the deck lights and had a separate switch for the storage lights.

I have the blue on my deck and green in my live wells and cooler, and white in my boxes. I have my front deck lites on one switch and back deck on another. All deck lights at one time was to much light. The blue looks cool at night and no night blindness.

Just make sure you have a dimmer installed!
I have blue and really like them.

The dimmer is a must, I went without it at first, lesson learned.
