Shoprite food coloring....green, red, or mix and get purple.
We add 20 parts salt water to 1 part dye in a 5 gallon bucket....key is to keep "recharging" them by dipping them in the bucket each time you check baits or reset your drift.
Make sure to put out at least one natural (no dye) as some nights that is the one that stands out and gets wacked.
I have found that the dye makes a difference when fishing the fuller moon phases when there is more light in the water, which is when we typically drop our baits down an extra 100 foot or so vs. lesser moon phases.
Don't forget the light....the little LP Diamond lights in purple are the ticket (no need to spend $50 on the larger flavor disco lights).
Catch em up.
This is what I do as well.......and I always end up with Red hands for the next day!!
Tsunami tackle also makes a nice deep drop light that is only $19 and comes with a long-line clip :thumbsup:
