fishing glasses

6 posts in this topic

I've noticed that some polarized glasses have a mirror coating (blue, yellow etc) on the outside. Does this help cut down the glare or is just style? cool.gif Also, I've read in archived posts about grey/amber lenses for low light, cloudy, days. I find it too dark wearing my glasses on cloudy days. Should I try glasses without the mirror style fronts in these conditions? Has anyone tried to use shooting glasses (which are yellow) or something else that doesn't make it look so dark outside? I just like to keep my eyes protected from flying lures and the wind on darker days.

brown lenses are great for low light conditions; at least on the stream/river. I would assume the same would be true for lakes...

The mirrored layer doesn't cut down on glare, the polarization layer does that. The mirrored layer cuts down even more light transmission, so they are the best for bright sun. I have used mine in lower light situations and they are OK. The worst part is looking into the water is more difficult than a lighter color without the mirrored layer.

I have two pairs of Maui Jim Hookipa glasses...one grey and one amber. I usually wear the grey ones, but if I happen to be out on a cloudy day, I wear the amber ones. They work great and really brighten things up on those cloudy, gloomy days.

Thanks for the replys. I think I'll try a pair without the mirror fronts.

      So a few questions about Winni as I have never been there before. Do you find that the fishing tapers off as winter progresses, for example if heading up there for Perch and Walleye would you chose January, February or March, or doesn't it seem to matter much?  Also what is the night vs daytime bite like? Trying to plan a few days up there with the wife and trying to decide when to go and if a sleeper is worthwhile or just do a daytime shack.   Any thoughts are appreciated.     Thank you

      The Helix 5 gives you the option to view different screens. The view button option shows separate flasher screen, sonar , gps , others. Screen views will run side by side in different combinations, but flasher screen only works by itself. Great little unit. I use mine for gps . Ram mount on handlebar
