Why are fish attracted to light?
Attract More Fish with L.E.D. Electronic
Lures Lighthouse lures use L.E.D. lights embedded in the lure to attract more fish.
The light act as beacon for the fish and causes them to strike. The lights in
the lures can last as long as 200 hours submerged in the water. Our L.E.D.
lights turn on automatically when they hit the water and turn off when they exit
the water. Get the best advantage on your next fishing trip and use Lighthouse
Lures to catch more fish.
Why Lighthouse Electronic Fishing Lures Work
Fish are predators who hunt visually. Their eyes act as a kind of radar,
seeking out changes in the ambient light around them for signs of prey in the
immediate vicinity. The most notable and immediate changes in a dark underwater
environment are rapid changes in light. Such changes attract the immediate
attention of game fish on the prowl for their next meal and often trigger
immediate feeding strikes. Therefore, it makes sense that visual enhancers, most
notably light, can have an astounding impact on a lure’s effectiveness. For any
angler looking for an edge, adding eye-catching, artificially lighted lures to
the tackle box are the extra advantage needed to produce more and bigger fish.
Since fish are attracted to light, then you need to add light to your fishing
Ambient light decreases as one travels further away from the surface of a
body of water. Because fish hunt primarily by sight, any out of the ordinary
light in the normally dark environment of the water will attract their
attention. The basic rules apply. Big fish eat little fish, and little fish,
often covered in shiny scales, reflect what little light reaches the depths at
which they happen to swim. This reflected light is the first clue a larger fish
has to some kind of prey in the vicinity and triggers movement to investigate a
possible meal. Often times, any light that resembles the glimmer of a reflection
off a baitfish can trigger a natural strike response.
Bottom line, any angler looking to improve their results on the water should
seek out every possible advantage. Anglers have embraced a myriad of
technologies to improve their chances of finding more fish on the water. Imagine
fishing today without your depth finder, down rigger, or trolling motor for
example. The lighted lure could very well be the trolling motor of tomorrow. If
you are looking for big fish in deep, dark water, then adding light to your lure
can significantly improve your chances of attracting that monster Halibut,
Salmon, Tuna, Rockfish, Dorado, or Marlin you will be telling your buddies about
your big catch until they cannot stand to hear about it one more time. Best of
luck and keep those lines tight!
