A video presentation on the use of OceanLED lights and Fishing the Flats with Henry Waszcuk ... read more
Video Transcript [Narrator] You’re watching fishing the flats with host Henry Waszcuk.
When it comes the night fishing in Florida, there is one fish that stands out among the rest for being a nocturnal feeder and that’s the good old Snook. Those people blessed to have docks on waterways usually install their nightlight not just for the look but for attracting baitfish to the dock. And guess what; soon the Snook will come too. Night after night these docks on the water are automatic Snook hotspots all year long. Now take this approach to fishing at night with you. Yes you can, on your boat that’s right.
OceanLED has developed incredible new technology and again not just for looks but to attract fish to your boat. What if you could bring the fish closer to you? That’s what this is about. The pure blue color attracts bait right into the light while not bothering their eyes. If the bait is okay with it, the game fish are too. That’s where ocean LED excels. Their technology of regular and strobe light patterns have given a whole new outlook of fishing at nights. Just like this.
[Henry] Well this is an unbelievable evening, we’re out just outside of Stewart off the jetty and we’re doing a little bit of night fishing. Oh yeah that guy hooked up. Ho ho alright baby come on now. Come on! oh man good fight. It’s amazing when you see how far these lights shine back. Come on baby, head shakes; okay almost got him. I tell you it’s harder where that tide’s ripping through there. Yeah I knew it wasn’t a Snook but I didn’t want to say anything just in case. All right let’s see that baby. Let’s grab the rod here, let’s have him lying out and take a good look at him. I tell you I knew it didn’t feel like a Snook because it didn’t come out of the water and shake. But look at that beautiful or what.
[Lewis] That’s a nice Cubera snapper you got there
[Henry] Well I tell you Lewis, Snook they are great but I tell you these snappers are excellent eating, definitely one for the table. Okay let’s get the hook out and how about those blue OceanLEDs that fish looks gorgeous.
[Lewis] And the male Snook will actually be tickling the female trying to get the spawn going. You might have like one female fish and three or four of those male all around her right to the boat almost to the release.
[Henry] Wow I would like to see that. Beautiful look at this. Oh oh! We got a bite, we got a bite. Here you go it’s not very big but oh yeah little Snook little Snook. There he is right there. I tell you that water is so clear my goodness. All right here you go. Alright I’m going to put him in the water.
[Lewis] Those little guys in there are tickling the female. Every now and then you will hook a big fish and three or four of those little guys will come up right with her to the boat.
[Henry] Now this guy is about ready, here you go.
All there he goes, oh man oooh. Okay.
[Lewis] It could be another Cubera.
[Henry] Yeah but it’s amazing because you know this tide is ripping behind us and I do know if it’s a little bit too fast for these Snook and they’re just holding back. Hopefully when this tide comes down you know, but I tell you that one did a good run there. Come on and show yourself. Oh it might be a Snook. It’s so hard because you really can’t see because the fish hasn't come into the lights yet. But boy I tell you when it does; I think it’s long. Oh yeah beautiful Snook. Okay do we have him secure because it looks like a nice fish.
[Lewis] Yes sir.
[Henry] Oh my goodness Lewis. Lewis baby show us this fish beautiful. You really like to care of these bruisers. What I'm going to do is I'm just going to hold this fish and suspend him in the water. Look at that fish beautiful. What I'm going to do is I'm going to grab his tail, un-hook him here okay and there he goes.
Now how about that for a little bit of great action, a little bit of this, a little bit of that, pretty awesome you know. No matter where you go in Florida there’s always some great fish to be had. Definitely if you never tried night fishing; give it a try. You might want to get some light yourself. I’m Henry Waszcuk I’m going to see you next week on another episode of Fishing The Flats.
[Narrator] Next week we travel to the Venice flats of Louisiana to hunt quality Red fish on Artificial Lures with captain Peter Chesner.

[Lewis] He didn’t come to mind I could have think of somebody else, that’s all right.
A video presentation on the OceanLED underwater lights as presented by Marlin Magazine ... read more
Video Transcript [Nigel] My name is Nigel Savage, the company is called OceanLED. We developed underwater lighting using LED as opposed to conventional technology with bulbs. The lights we have right now are very bright and led technology is growing so fast that within the next 2 years the lights that even we have will be twice as bright as they are now. We have a fantastic amount of boat companies now who want to put our lights on boats. We are finding that the blue lights especially are about 70% of our sales and blue lights for fishing people. If you have a blue light on one side of the boat and white light on the other most of the fish go to the blue light actually fantastic.
We have a tremendous market here and with the sports fishing teams going out and what have you, we sponsor several of them, they all either come first or second in their competitions. It’s just great, it’s fantastic and the market is growing all the time. And it’s great, it’s a real gizmo thing to have on the back of your boat that when you’re driving along at night and you see all of the spray going on, it’s just something else.
Obviously another great feature we have is that lights that we make you can run out of water with them; something that the competitors have a huge difficulty doing. And that’s one of the sexiest thing that when you’re running at night you’ve got all of these lights just lighting up the rooster tail behind the boat, it’s just fantastic. We do other colors of course; we got blue, we got green. And the lifespan of the LED is around 40,000 hours which is an amazing amount of time. By the time you put them on your boat, you probably sold your boat and the guy before after that’s probably sold his boat as well and it’s still working, fantastic technology.
Of the features that of course that are very important especially for the smaller boats are that the LED uses far less consumption of power than conventional lights. And because there is no filament, there is no bulb, it’s a light emitting diode, the vibration has nothing to do with short life, and it just goes on and on and on.
A lot of people are coming down to the show, we’ve been actually inundated with people. Excuse me sir Ron Ron Ron. Can you come on here please?
