Aqua-Vu at night?

7 posts in this topic

I just used my new Aqua-Vu today. I saw a few fish during the day before I needed to turn on the multi-colored lights. After I turned them on, not another fish came in. Is that just that the fish stopped using this area, or are these lights scaring away the fish? I thought that these lights were not visible to the fish? I had glare coming off my jigs. Can the fish see this glare? Would my glow-in-the-dark jigs aways be charged?

Just wondering? Any help or thoughts would be appreciated.

Polebender,

The MC lights will charge your Glow baits. And as far as scaring the fish I've been using the MC lights for 3 or 4 years. And I haven't noticed that they scare the fish, usually it is just like having a really big glowing attractor for the fish.

Thanks for reply. Maybe they just quite using that area after dark and I did not move with them then.

I was on Mille Lacs once, I had a walleye on the screen close to dark that I couldn't make out. I turned on the lights to get a better look, All I saw was a puff of silt. I have noticed that the lights seem to scare fish away also, I never seem to get fish when they are on.

This is true, but if you have the lights on before the fish are there you will be fine. It's just like if you were sitting there staring at something it would be normal. But if all of a sudden it started glowing and looking odd it would spook you also.

Very good question, honestly I don't even know a good answer to that. Once it starts getting later just turn them on. It definitely doesn't work if you turn them on to view a fish that just popped in.

    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
