Do any of you guys fish at night with Hydro Glow lights? Either through the ice or open water fishing in the summer?
Nice photo. Memories from my childhood there. Last time I fished there was 1978. My Dad and I were in Rutland and the guy in the sports shop told us to go to Glenn Lake and fish at night with the lantern. We caught a bunch of really nice fat rainbows, some probably 16-18 inches as I recall. I think we went back once the next summer and caught some more. In 1976 my Dad and I hunted the Rutland City Forest and got a nice 200lb bear while we were deer hunting. My Dad's company had a condo at Killington that the employees could use so that's how I ended up in that area. Great times.
Good to hear that the fishing is still good.The rainbows are all from 15 to 18ish, it’s not any different now. You can go there most anytime and catch a limit of them after dark. I catch a few of them through the ice too when I’m fishing for perch and crappie. Big giant yellow perch in there.
Similar I think, the hydro glow lights I’ve seen are green and submersible. They work by attracting zooplankton which then attracts minnows which then attracts larger fish. The most popular uses seem to be crappie fishing and smelt fishing through the ice, at least around here. I’m curious what else, if anything, people use them to fish for
