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.

    •   Well may be instead of buying a few over priced pizza's and eating them while you're sitting on the internet Beoshing about others doing something with their time and money you can get off your atheist ars and go help the folks with a few blanks! Freeking Hypocrite much!

    •   Dave- I'm as disillusioned as you with regards to our two main parties and I've been known to lurk around the edges of the Libertarian camp. What keeps me from coming all the way in is silly stuff like this.   You're as delusional as an altar boy that thinks the priest wants to be his "friend" if you believe churches are going to fix anything. They never have and they never will.    If churches help the poor, why are there so many poor people?   Here are a couple great examples of christians helping poor people- 1- A group from my community just got back from a mission trip to some central american rathole where 27 men that paid over $2000 apiece to go 1500 miles to build what were more or less 3 garages for some poor community. A little time for sightseeing and photo taking and they are back home with tons of pretty pictures proud of themselves for doing gods work. 2- The wife just bought 3 overpriced crappy pizzas from my niece to fund her New Orleans mission trip. A bunch of kids will raise several thousand dollars from suckers like me, take a nice trip somewhere I never went as a kid, see some sights and paint a couple houses.   Meanwhile, we live in a county where real, abject poverty actually exists. Students of mine go to bed hungry, don't have enough blankets in their house and live in homes one wouldn't leave their dog in.
