    Going to purcase some strip lighting for under my pontoon for night fishing. What seems to be the most productive color(s)?

    Green seems to be the hot color. I have green led submersible lights that do a good job. One I bought and the other I built. A Coleman lantern hung out over the water works well for attracting bait as well.

    Definatly going waterproof and have been leaning toward green as that seems to be the go-to color for submersible lights as well.

    Green or white seems to be the standard for submersible lights. I've only fished over green lights once, & only for a few hours, but I've fished over white lights since I was a kid. I've used Coleman gas lanterns, floating headlights, and submersibles ... and really can't tell you which lights ... above the water lights - on the surface lights - or submerged lights ... are more productive, because they were used under very different circumstances.

    Personally, I don't think you could go wrong with either color ... but, unless you're fishing heavily stained water, I see no use in putting out mega-power lighting, since most of the time any light in the area will draw schools of baitfish and quite often the fish will stay just outside of the main area of lighted water.

    I believe sometimes with lights for fish sometimes less is more. They do make dimmable led strips
