Under The Ice
Summertime isn't the only time
Underwater Lights Attract Fish.
                                                  Can be a bone chilling experience if the fish aren't biting.  

We all know the key to catching fish, is locating the fish....right?  But since the lakes are
frozen over, underwater structure is harder to locate and sometimes numerous holes have
to be punched in the ice before finding the fish.  That's why serious ice-fisherman have
discovered they can sit back and let the fish come to them.  How are they doing that?  They
have found that submersible lights not only attract fish in the summer, they also attract fish
in the winter through the ice.

All good fisherman know that lights attract fish during the summertime but many do not
realize lights will attract fish during the winter time as well.  How do they work?  
Submersible lights project light directly into the water which starts a natural food chain
reaction by attracting a concentration of small microscopic animals called plankton.  Bait
fish such as shad and minnows are drawn to the light to feed on the plankton; and larger
game fish move in to feed on the bait fish.  It doesn't matter if there is ice on the surface or
not, fish have to eat and the light starts a food chain reaction which fish are drawn too.  

Fishing with lights in the winter is not that different than fishing with lights in the summer.  
The first thing you have to do is set up on or near some kind structure.  This can be a drop
off adjacent to a river channel, submerged brush or even a pile of rocks.  Fish are ALWAYS
found near some type of structure no matter what time of year it is.  If you aren't fishing on
or near some type of structure your chances of catching fish are greatly limited.  
Remember, 10% of the water in any lake holds 100% of the fish.  The rest of the lake is
dead water.  

When fishing with lights Do NOT submerge the light to deep in the hole.  As long as the
light is just below the bottom edge of the ice...it is deep enough.  The closer you keep the
light to the bottom edge of the ice...the more light will be reflected downward.  The bottom
of the ice acts like a giant reflector so do not sink the light too deep in the water.  

Our new
AlumiGlo IcePro 1200 COB is the ideal ice fishing light because of its durable
construction and small compact design. The light puts out a whopping 1200 lumens of
Green light while only pulling 1.2 amps from your compact battery.  Runtime for one light is
about 7 hours using a small rechargeable 9 amp hour battery. The lights are small and
compact and can be easily dropped down an ice hole and later stored in your tackle box. For
more info on Batteries and Run Time see
Run Time and Battery Facts.

Fishing under the lights has become one of the most popular methods of fishing during the
winter.  If you have never tried fishing Under the Lights, you have missed out on some of
the fastest fishing you'll ever experience!  Not only is the fishing fast and furious under the
lights, but there's something special about sitting on a frozen lake enjoying nature and
beauty at it's finest.   Give it a try, you'll be glad you did.
