Portable fishing lights are used to attract fish in deep dark waters or while night fishing. The light attracts small fish, similar to bugs to a light bulb. When this happens, larger fish start to come around, seeing the small fish as a waiting meal. A green light is best at drawing in the fish as it penetrates deeper water, according to Fishing Lights Etc. Using a light allows you to save time searching for the fish. You can purchase a light for this purpose, or you can make one with each to find materials.
