Exterior Boat Lights?

3 posts in this topic

Any good brands that'll light up the lake around you at night?

I don't know where you're heading with your idea to light up the lake around you at night, but just in case you're thinking about this I'll point out that using artificial lights to attract fish is illegal. It's spelled out in fishing regs in case you want to read the specifics.

I troll at night quite a bit and like to keep it as dark as possible. I have my running lights on but no interior lights. We use headlamps and clip lights as our primary source of light, with a strong maglight and a spotlight for finding channels and docking, and occasionally for netting fish. I think anything else that would light up the lake would cause way too much glare in the boat???

I fish mille lacs a lot and the last thing you want is a lot of external fish for all those Boat Fisherman out there! I have a hard enough time Trying to be bymyself more than anything. But to answer your question I but some LED lights to install inside my boat. I tapped the wires that lead to the Running lights so I always have power to these lights. One side of the switch turns on RED and the other White light! this is very handy if you do alot of night fishing! I also carry a 15million candle power spot light on board just in case!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
