Night fishing is great fun -- there's no doubt about it. Whether you're going after crappie, bass, or catfish, when you're night fishing there are no distractions.
One of the best things about night fishing is the fact that it's usually extremely quiet. No boats zooming around, the good fishing holes are open, and you get to immerse yourself into your fishing.
In the southern states, nighttime fishing is more prevalent than in the upper states. Since the daytime temperatures get pretty hot and the air is saturated with humidity, it's pretty obvious why there is a lot of night fishing going on down south. But, even if you don't live in the South, that doesn't mean you can't enjoy a cool, relaxing twilight fishing trip.
Now, it's fun to go nighttime fishing, but it's not much fun to fish in the complete dark. You're going to need good navigation equipment and proper lighting -- and that should include the Night Stalker III Light. The light comes with both white general-purpose bulbs and dual black bulbs.
The black bulbs illuminate your fluorescent monofilament for easier visibility at longer distances. When the "blacklights" are on, you can keep a steady eye on your line and watch for the slightest twitch. I've also found that if I put a touch of fluorescent paint on the tip of my rod, the black bulbs will light it up like a Christmas light.
So to not be glaring, the regular lighting is covered with frosted lens cover to reduce eyestrain. The 4-way on/off switch lets you turn on just the lights you need. With the black lights on, fluorescent fishing line can be seen at a distance of 50-feet. Use either 6 D batteries (not included) or 12V electrical system. Complete with carry strap and two suction cup feet for temporary placement on the boat rail.
I actually read something interesting about the Night Stalker III light that I figured I'd share with you. While searching for information about black lights, I found one gentleman that actually uses the Night Stalker III light to hunt scorpions. Maybe I'm not very "worldly," but I've never heard of hunting for scorpions. I guess scorpions show up well in a black light.
Whether you want to do some night fishing, or hunt scorpions this summer, check out the Night Stalker III Light -- it's a great illumination system that won't let you down.
