Default Red Light District

So, as a lot of you know red is spectrum that water just loves to absorb. Infact studies show that a lot of critters don't see the red spectrum very well or at all.. I'm wondering if one was to put a red filter on their dive light, would it make bug hunting easier?

Spike the box, filter the light.

They might not "see red" but light is light. If your color blind you still know when a light is on, just not what color.

I think by just using a dimmer light that helps the same as a red lense.

I use a bright then when I get in the lobster zone I switch to a dimmer light

Doesn't the quick, bright flash of light temporarily blind them, then you can easily bag em?

There's a local HB thug that uses that technique on the streets.

Don't shine you light into the hole, skim along to top of suspected areas looking for the sweeping antenna, most lobster holes have a back door, try to find this first. You can use a stick to tickle the belly of the tail and it will slowly walk out. Dont be too anxion because they can jump back in very quickly wait until they get enough to slam down on top. If that fails or there is no back door and you see the antenna then open your hand and palm down, shove into the hole to grab and turn them on their side to dissorient them and so they cannot lock themselves into the roof.

We use tickle sticks here in Jersey to get them moveing but now lassos or grapples they are illegal and not very sporty.

Just one this if it looks too small you should leave it be, so it can grow to a biggun.
