5. Solar Piling Caps

DokLites are the world’s most functional dock lighting system available. Its technology has multiple patents and brings a new era in lighting for docks, decks and waterway obstructions. With a solar power design, all DokLites are maintenance free, and eliminate the need for any further electrical work on your dock.

DokLites serve the conventional purposes of piling cap, whether it be to guard against birds or rain. They also use Mil-Spec micro-processor circuitry to create a comfortable, ambient light on your dock. Each has a UV and impact resistant housing. DokLites, and the LEDS within them, will last and be protected for years.

4. Guide Post Lights

Every set of GuideLites is manufactured in the USA. From the patent-pending polymers used in the plastic, to the custom designed solar panels. We build our GuideLite boat lift light to last. GuideLites fit snug into the 2 inch PVC pipe that comes with most boat lifts. The GuideLites can be seen from long distances, but not be blinding while up close. To achieve this, we create a “glow” effect to ensure you can see every boat lift light. So, whether you are looking from 5 feet or 50 feet, you will still be able to know exactly where your boat lift is.

Each GuideLite is made with safety in mind. Centering your boat on the lift perfectly isn’t our only goal. Also, we want to ensure your boat lift is visible to all other boaters that happen to be on the water after sunset.

2. Single Dock Light

Anyone with a dock, knows there is a lot of life under the surface they can’t see. What’s the best way to solve that? Illuminate it!

A single Underwater Fish Light is one of the best dock accessories available. You’ll discover an entire new world of activity that has been under the surface all along! These systems attract fish by reflecting off microorganisms in the water. These reflections attract baitfish, which in turn attract predator fish like snook, tarpon, redfish, bass, and many more!

1. Double Dock Light

Get twice the lights for twice the fun! The more lights you have under the water, the more reflection. This means you’ll be able to seen more bait fish & predator fish! These systems are the exact same as our single systems, but they have two bulbs each on their own individual wires. With two lights, you will have twice the amount of microorganisms reflect from the light, therefore attracting more baitfish and predator fish! 

While fishing lights are available in a variety of brand names, configurations and styles, they are usually classified in one of two categories – floating or submersible.  Whether in a boat or on land, most serious anglers who enjoy fishing between dusk and dawn are well aware of the importance of having these types of lights.  Fishing lights are not only functional and practical, they are extremely versatile as well.  In addition to lighting up the water and attracting plankton, baitfish, and the larger predator fish, they provide light for hooking bait, tying fishing line, and unhooking your catch.

Floating Fishing Lights

As the name implies, these lights stay on the surface of the water but provide lighting down to varying depths as well as above the surface.  Ironically, the first floating fishing lights were rudimentary and consisted of a styrofoam floating ring that surrounded a sealed white light that was similar in design to the headlights on a vehicle.  Most of these are powered by 12-volt batteries and are connected to the floating light with alligator clips attached to the terminals.

If you’re fishing in a boat, you can place one or more of these next to it by pointing the light beam downward so it penetrates the water and eventually attracts baitfish and hopefully, a larger predator.  If on the other hand, you’re fishing from a dock or land, you’ll need to secure them using cord, rope, or some type of weight so they don’t drift out of reach.  Remember, you can use white colored light but green would be a better choice because it isn’t absorbed so quickly and penetrates further into the water.

Submersible Fishing Lights

For many years, floating fishing lights were the only style that were available and were pretty much the standard for individuals who enjoyed fishing at night.  Unfortunately, they had to contend with aggravating swarms of insects and pests that were attracted to the light along with the plankton, baitfish, and larger fish.  Because of this and a number of other reasons, submersible floating lights came into being.  These lights are placed beneath the surface in order to light up the water above and below them.

Today, you can purchase submersible fishing lights that are available in 12-volt, battery powered, or LED varieties.  They are manufactured to sink immediately when you place them in the water.  In fact, many models are made with an internal weight so they sink quickly.  Conversely, there are other models that won’t sink until they’ve been attached to a weighted swivel clip on one of the ends of the fishing light.  Because these models will float unless they are weighted down, you have more versatility when using them.

An exciting, exhilarating, and memorable experience – these are words oftentimes used to describe the sport of night fishing.  It’s a recreational activity that is full of enjoyment and expectation, yet it’s uniquely mysterious.  You’re hoping that you land a trophy fish if you hook something and yet and yet you can never be sure of catching anything.  You never know what’s lurking beneath your boat or off the dock and never will until you get it up to the surface.  Therein lies the mystery of night fishing.

Although you can catch lots of fish during the daytime, fishing between dusk and dawn is unlike any other pursuit.  However there are certain species of fish and times during the year when night fishing greatly improves your odds of being successful.  However, if you do go fishing at night, fishing lights are vital components of such an adventure.  It’s not just about being able to see what you’re doing.  It’s about attracting fish to your boat or the dock you’re fishing from.

The Progression of Events

For those of you who are unfamiliar with night fishing in freshwater or saltwater, the progression of events usually transpires as follows.  Fishing lights attract tiny creatures known as plankton (or zooplankton in technical terms).  The plankton attracts the smaller fish (baitfish) such as herring, minnows, and shad which feed on them.  In turn, the larger predator fish such as bass, crappie, redfish, speckled trout, walleye, and other species (depending on where you’re fishing), move in to feed on the baitfish.  At that point, the angler is ready with his or her live bait or lure.  Game on!

3 Types of Fishing Lights

There are three types of lights that are used when fishing at night – submersible fishing lights, floating fishing lights, and black lights.  Not only are these lights used to attract the fish, they can be used in combination with one another.  For example, you can place two floating lights above two submersible ones in order to stretch the amount of visible light from the depths to the surface.  Using different fishing lights in conjunction with one another is a highly effective method for attracting and catching fish at night.

Furthermore, black lights will help you see you’re fishing line, thereby allowing you to determine what’s going on below the surface by not only feeling your line move but seeing it as well.  With the floating and submersible lighting combination, you can see above the water as well.  This is very handy for baiting your hook, tying on hooks and lures to your line, and unhooking the fish you catch.  Remember, there are certain fish that often work the night shift.  And you should be, too.
