I haven't personally noticed them attracting any fish, but we don't do a lot of fishing at dark to really tell for sure. For me, I love having them when we get back late and are unloading the boat at the dock, or heading out before dawn - they really light the area up. And they're fun when you're docked up at a restaurant for dinner. 😎
I do fish at night and no; they don't attract fish. That said the blue ones on my Conquest do come in handy when arriving at my slip late in the evening or before heading out in the morning. A little bit more a degree of safety seeing exactly where the water is even with the spreader lights on.
While I'm not one that needs or wants the Kaleidoscope of lights that change colors to the beat of music being played, it would be nice to have the ability to change at least between blue, white and red. The latter especially to save night vision and be able to see the fish you're hauling in if its after dusk.
With the BW website pushing the Realm as an entertainment platform moreso than a fishing platform I'm surprised that the option isn't there for you to be able to select different colored lights to cycle as you want both interior to the boat with the UW lights. Or does the Realm just have the blue LED courtesy lights like the 2017 Conquest? I never use those; they get me all blurry eyed. But I do use the red overhead lights a lot. Much easier on the eyes and saves the night vision.
Congrats on your 38 Realm. Beautiful boat! When you're ready to make an even trade up to a 2017 345 Conquest; let me know! 🙂
I was thinking about being able to change the underwater lights to green to attract fish. I think I'll leave them off the order since they're an extra $10k and I doubt I'd use them very much if at all.
Not sure about the courtesy lights. I think my current 320 Vantage has red so my guess is the Realm will too.
Thanks. I'm very excited! Ha! I'll let you know.
