If you have a dock in at least three to four feet of water that has decent current flow, you may want to look into adding an above water or underwater docklight. Docklights attract fish, it's really that simple. Every fisherman has their preference as far as color and brightness, whether it been green, blue, orange, or yellow, although green lights win a lot of attention (shown in photo) but no question a well placed light will attract all kinds of aquatic life. Now, fishing other people's docklights is always fun and productive, but what about having your own? Being able to step out on your dock and have snook, trout, and all kinds of other critters hanging out is surely a treat. There are quite a few companies out there that make high quality lights for both above water and underwater use and Florida Sportsman members share which lights have worked best for them and have lasted over the years.
