You probably think that finding the right fishing dock lights is an easy task….until you have to do it by yourself. When you browse for the different types, you just realize that it is not an easy task to do – and you are clueless about which lights to choose. Don’t worry; there are some handy tips and guidance that you can try so you won’t be spending money for something useless.
You need to remember that the design and construction for the dock lights and the portable lights are different. In the portable light construction, you need to have a solid and sturdy construction with tough material. But since the lights are portable, you don’t have to submerge them all day long – you only do this when you are fishing.
The dock lights are completely different. They are designed to stay underwater, no matter what. Whether you fish or not, whether you will use the dock or not….they are designed to stay fixed to the slot and they shouldn’t be easily removed. You want the sturdy construction made from premium materials. Some of these lights may come with bulbs surrounded by metal or a cover. Even with the metal surrounding, the metal shouldn’t easily rust or it will affect the quality of the lights. Don’t forget that some of these lights are easily installed – even without the help of any professional installer. Despite the rugged and solid construction, you want to have these kinds of qualities.
Don’t forget that maintenance is also important to make your lights stay bright and shine. If you choose a light with cover, big chances that the lights will dim over time because the cover will be attached to so many marine elements. Consider having a maintenance work once every four to six months – but it all depends on the quality of the lights and the service that provides them.
