If You Have Never Used A Blacklight While Night Fishing, You're Missing Out

We all know the benefits of night fishing - bigger catches and calmer waters are just two, however, night fishermen have several challenges that “day time" fishermen do not have to deal with.

One of the most difficult challenges is, of course, being able to see your line to find out if you have had a hit. Here is one way of easily being able to watch your line at night.

Use a blacklight and a fluorescent fishing line.

When fishing at night, it may be a few seconds before you know you have one on the line. By this time, the fish could already be under your boat or have begun it's mad dash to the opposite shoreline.

By using a blacklight, your florescent line will glow in the dark, making it sometimes easier to see your line than during the day. You'll be amazed at how your line lights up in the dark waters.

There are several types of blacklights on the market specifically made for night fishermen. Probably the most popular is the “Stan Sloan" brand. Cabela's also has an Optronics brand blacklight they are selling for about $50.

Just as important as the blacklight is the type of line you use with it.

Berkley makes a great flame green fireline florescent line that works well with blacklight night fishing as well. The reason this particular line works so well is because the florescent coloring is not painted on the line, but rather is chemically mixed into the actual line during production, which means the color lasts much longer than other brands.

P-Line also makes a good fluorescent line that is clear. You will need to test to determine which one works best for you.

The use of a blacklight during night fishing is a common debate among avid fishermen. Some think the black lights may spook certain fish, others couldn't live without using them.

Give it a shot and see for yourself. You may be pleasantly surprised with the results.
