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.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
