When night-fishing for crappie some anglers use only fuel-powered lanterns like those made by Coleman. Others use only floating or submersible fishing lights. Smart anglers use both. Hanging lanterns attract insects which attract baitfish which attract crappie. This isn’t an instantaneous process, of course, so give it time to work.

Use at least two lanterns positioned on the same side of the boat so insects don’t fog around your head. Meanwhile, sealed-beam crappie lights have a styrofoam flotation ring. They’re an added attraction for fish but not bugs because the headlight-like beam points down in the water. Submersible fishing lights are made to sink beneath the water’s surface and light up the depths below. These, too, are good additions to your night-fishing setup.
