According to several studies, green and white light is most attractive to plankton, which typically migrate toward the plankton for reproduction. But fishing lights attract both baitfish, thus attracting larger predatory fish that cannot easily pass through. Fishing lights are a must for fishermen and fishing friends who fish at night. For novice anglers, it is also necessary to learn more about fishing lamp&ballast. Please read on to learn more.

This passage is going to talk about the following introductions of fishing light:

1) Introduction to fishing lights

2) A long history of fishing lights

3) Principles of fishing lights


1) Introduction to fishing lights

Fishing lights fall into two categories: portable and permanently mounted.

Typically, portable lights are powered by batteries, which sets a practical limit on the types of lights that can be used. Most portable light sources have relatively low light intensity and a short operating time. It is impractical to consume more than a few tens of watts of light.

A 12-volt automotive incandescent headlamp mounted on a polystyrene foam floating ring is probably the least expensive and can last several hours before the battery is discharged. Battery fluorescent lamps are three times more efficient at converting electricity to light. Thus, comparing lights of similar brightness can extend their operating time by about three times before the battery is discharged. Moreover, fluorescent lamps last about ten times longer than incandescent lamps. The intensity of commercial portable fishing lights based on fluorescent lamps is highly variable. It is best to use a 25-40 watt lamp that emits about 1000-3000 lumens per lamp.

2) A long history of fishing lights

Fishing light attractors will be most effective if operated every night. Large fish may take one to two weeks to discover the location of baitfish attracted to the increasing concentration of bait in the light. Once spotted, the fish will return regularly - usually arriving at a predetermined time in the evening. Fishing with fishing lights has been practiced for hundreds of years. "Sulfur fishing" is a traditional technique, and modern methods are still used in Taiwan, where acetylene is burned to attract fish. Fishermen there in Taipei use large fires to attract and catch fish while on their traditional sulfuric acid fire fishing boats. But know that our modern fishing lights are a much better option and you can contact us if you have any needs.


3) Principles of fishing lights

Why are fish attracted to fishing lights?

One is because the fish in the body of water to see the light of the fishing lamp, will feel "curious", and produce exploratory reflexes and tend to the light source.

Second, for bait feeding and tend to the light source, such as zooplankton copepods, small shrimp, small crabs and other larval animals in the water column under the irradiation of the external light source has a very strong phototropism, and gathered in the light source area, so that the bait fish swim to the zooplankton migration area to feed on the best bait.

Third, the instinct of fish tends to its suitable light.

Fourth, the fishing light irradiation makes the fish's photoreceptors obtain light energy, and their optic pigments undergo photochemical reactions, while swimming towards or away from the light source.

There are various hypotheses about the response of fish to light stimuli, such as curiosity, suitable illumination, baiting clusters, conditioned reflexes, forced movement, confusion and instinct. In the same kind of fish, its phototropism varies with the development stage, male and female sex, feeding amount and swim bladder structure, such as the juvenile stage is more obvious than the adult stage phototropism, when feeding amount is low, it is easy to be trapped by light, and some fish, such as bamboo knife fish in the pregnant egg stage of phototropism is weakened.
