The first time I ever fished over a green light I was skeptical.
It seemed like a gimmick. One of those things fishermen spend money on that makes them feel better but doesn’t actually help them catch fish.
Then I saw a HUGE stripped bass get hauled in over the side of the boat.
I had been fishing Lake Wallenpawpack for a week with NO fish caught, and then 1 night fishing over a green light and BOOM! Fish on.
I became a believer.
Now you will find a Green Blob Light on my fishing boat.
A green blob uses bright green LED’s run off of AC or DC power to attract plankton, which attract baitfish, which then attract bigger fish.
The light can be placed under a boat, run off of a 12 volt battery, or off a dock and plugged into a AC outlet.
Wherever you place your light, plankton swimming around the water are attracted to the bright green light. They start to congregate.
When plankton congregate, baitfish follow.
Many fisherman will use a green blob to catch baitfish to be used as live bait for fishing.
Once bait fish have congregated a fisherman can throw a cast net, capturing the freshest most alive bait in the pond, and throw those baitfish in a livewell.
The congregated baitfish will of course attract bigger fish.
I have seen catfish, stripped bass, walleye, and of course our favorite, crappie, pulled in over a green light.
