What better way to expand your time on the water than to get out at night. With a few Hydro Glow Fishing Lights packed in the car, we got on the ice just before sunset. We punched 4 holes inside of the hub style Clam shanty so that three of us could fish with one left in the center for the light.
To target these crappie, we set up in 8 feet of water that was about half stacked with dense weeds. We mainly worked above the weeds but from time to time dropped down in about a foot trying to shake things up. For the most part, the crappie were cruising the weed tops and the bluegill were down below.
The fishing went in spurts. Whether the fish were coming in one at a time or they got spooked when you would bring one up, there seemed to be a short gap between hook ups. We stayed on the ice until about 1 am with great numbers of quality fish.
Some lakes have a great night bite for Crappie, some don’t. The lake I fished last night was one that does not. The Hydroglow works sweet though. I still can’t get over the radius of light that this thing gives out, it’s truly amazing. If you like to fish at night check these out. You can also hardwire them to your boats for summer time fishing, these would rock night fishing for trout! Here’s a look a the light in action. We’re planning on getting some underwater shots as well, more to come.
The plan is for us to head to a small crappie pond tonight and try out the new Hydro Glow Fish Light. We’ll keep you posted on the outcome! See you Soon.We tried out the light last night. WOW! ;D That thing really glows. The fishing on the other hand sucked. We marked a lot of fish working the edges of the glow but they were strange. In 22fow, the fish suspended about 16-18 down, charge the bait, get 6 inches from it, stop, turn and charge the bottom, weird. We managed to get a few crappie and perch but nothing to write home about. I am convinced that the light is productive, just don’t stare at it too long like me, you’ll see everything in red for a couple of minutes!
