    Those who fish at night tend to see lots of animal life that would generally never be noticed . I have noticed small glowing lights in water as it flows from time to time. Has anybody else noticed this?

    When they made it illegal to drink and drive, I quit seeing them. Dont know what the Alcohol had to do with it. Maybe they liked the smell of it or something

    As times goes by you will see less and less of those glowing lights because they are indeed phosphorous.Unless your in a swampy area it can and will occur naturaly from rotting wood.Most of the phosphorous in the water can be attributed to cleaning agents such as Tide and other laundry detergents.

    Also alot of the older wooden pilings and piers in saltwater will glow from the naturaly occuring phosphorous.

    Hey I agree with you at night time you can see alot more at night than you can during the day times, I have fished before and seen glowing eyes in the woods went and looked it was a deer, but I have noticed it seems like alot more animals tend to come out during the night times more than they do during the day.
