What color to use for night fishing..?

If you mean for Menpachi fishing, using glow sticks (white and green ) is the most popular.. Menpachi lures- glows white,blue,pinks,reds are great to use, super glows are better, some have gritters in them, also no-glows like root beer and clear have work for us too...

If you mean for lighter floaters, AA battery ones, white tops is the most prefer...

If you mean for reflector tapes on fishing poles..? white is easy to see, other colors will be almost as bright.

Now deep water places- the color of the moon is nicer to have...Blues moons only happen once or twice a year... (meaning two full moons in a month)...2nd full moon is known at the blue moon.

Our flavoriate color for night fishing..... is CLEAR...and darker the clear the better with like it...LOL

Aloha, have you try clear eyes...? work very good...when cloudy...lol

Red lens or red lights, most animals, fishes cannot see this color lights... great for not spooking the fishes..headlamps...

Yellow lens or those yellow glass on lanterns... Yellow lights is suppose to not attract bugs, Yellow light bulbs are popular for lots of home for that reason.

Green lights- they say it is a obake color..? not sure of this one...rumors maybe...?

Blue lights...if behind you and starts to flash....not good for sure...

Aloha,
