fishing glasses

Question

bucketmouth64

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.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it. 
    • leech~~
      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.
