LED Flashlights

7 posts in this topic

I was at Gander today and I noticed a bunch of LED flashlights have either red, green or blue bulbs along with the white ones. Does anyone know the advantage of having a green or blue bulb?

The red shouldn't affect your night vision as much as the white light does. Green may be the same thing but I'm not sure.

I was once told that the blue light will help with finding blood spots in the dark. I bought one and can tell you that the blue does not help at all. The LED light is nice but white is what I will stay with.

They also say that the red cannot be seen by deer......I have never tested it and will stick with the white light and just go in to the stand a little earlier.

I've heard the red isn't as not noticable by deer too.

I like the red LED while getting my stuff organized in the stand.

I bought one of those LED lights for your head, on the recommendation of a fishing guide. It has a white or green light. I was told animals can't see the green - I can't prove or disprove that statement. What I can say, the green light is great when with others, it's not blinding like the white light. The purchase was worth the money and look forward to using a hands-free light walking to the deer stand.

The green is a nice benefit when with others. When we are at elk camp sitting around the table playing cards, it is nice to turn the green on every now and then and not blind everyone.

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
