color lense and why

12 posts in this topic

After reading much of the 'Sunglasses' post i am wondering why everyone chose the color/shade lense they chose?

I prefer amber lenses. I can see better into the water and for longer into the eavnings with the lighter lenses. But I like lighter lenses for my glasses. Amber, Yellow, Red, Orange, all have a place in my day to day.

But for fishing It is Amber only.

Amber all day everyday for me. I like the way they make things stand out in the water.

blue/green mirrors on bright days much like cecil. Amber is ideal for partial cloud cover.

I normally wear the ambers

I have H30's with 3 color lense choices, Ambers in most the time. Just got a pair of Ocean Wave with Back Water green lenses these are amazing. Can't wait to get them out on the water more.

I have always gone with brownish, or vermillion colored lenses. I personally don't care for grey lenses, but I'm sure there are those who say they have a time and place. I really liked the color of the green mirror costas.

Amber.. they have seemed to be the best for seeing through the water and really help make things stick out better

Get two pair. Your number one pair that gets the most use should have brown or copper photochromic lenses that lighten or darken as light levels go down or up. These should get you by under most circumstances. All of the makers of premium sunglasses make them. I like Action Optics, but the others are probably as good.

For pair number two, get YELLOW lenses for dark overcast days. Yellow lenses really do a great job on "brightening" things up on all but the very darkest days.

I can only tell you what works well for my eyes. If I only had one color to get it would probably be amber or vermillion. For most bright situations this is what I prefer. Unless in clear water. Then I much prefer grey. I recently bought a coper and really like it, and also recently got yellow/sunrise for low light situations. (I am a bit of a sunglasses junkie.)

    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
    • Nonetheless there are some forums here which actually have active informative discussions without all of the bafflegab found in this one. 
    • Great pictures by all that have shared thus far!    Three of my best or my favorites anyway...        
    • I was out and about wetland areas this weekend and saw lots of waterfowl.  Many trumpeter swans, high flying tundra swans, gadwalls, shovelers, a few wood ducks, ring necks, hooded mergansers, , a pair of goldeneyes, and a loon.  I also saw many sandhill cranes.
