    Have any of you guys ever tried out these submersible fishing lights that say they attract bait fish and game fish? Just seeing . Would like to know what the out come of this was. wanting to bring the fish to me since getting a boat and going to the fish right now isn't possible .

    These green lights are primarily used to attract bait fish. They must be in the water for an hour or two before they begin to work. The battery operated ones are best. You can put them in. Go fish somewhere else and then come back to them after they have had time to work

    I have one it is four feet long, and you use a five lb weight to submerge it. I start to notice bait fish after 15 minutes. After its been out there a while if you pay attention you'll see big ones stroll by too.

    i own two green submersible lights for boat fishing. they work great for attracting bait fish. i have great success using them. also they don't attract the bugs!! i use one off the main battery and the other is run off the trolling motor battery when anchored up..

    thanks for the help i bought one a week ago but won't be able to use till the beginning of August when i come home on leave . Was seeing if any one else has been using them to see if it was worth the money spent on it

    Thanks for all the info, When you guys say you have the 4 or 5 footer is that the "evening magic" or "catfish secret"? just curious

    I have mixed thoughts on the green lights. The reason is because I've run my regular 12v, floating, white crappie light ( for $8 ) in the same area as friends running green ones. There has never been a difference in the speed or amount of fish attracted to it.

    We catch our own blue back and skipjack herring/threadfinn shad every night we fish, and we fish a lot. The light literally draws in thousands of fish...no exaggeration.

    In fact, we leave the lights in the water until daylight. Some folks disagree about running lights while catting but it sure didn't matter to that 60LB cat we got a few months ago.

    Lights will only work if your picking out the correct spots. That's what makes the difference in the type of bait you draw, how fast hey come in and how many will show up.

    So, I say if you have the money to buy green lights go for it. If the money could be spent in another more suitable area then the white lights still work fine.
