On our Henriques 44 we have two of the big WHITE OceanLED's shooting down, and we have two BLUE OceanLED Amphibians shooting aft from the stern. We have found the BLUE lights shooting aft (under the water surface) gives us less glare at night compared to the WHITEs but still give us plenty of visible light to gaff and work lines in the "shadow" you usually get along the hull from the overhead spreader lights. You will find the underwater lights DO attract huge amounts of bait. On our first night shark trip in 2009 after installing the lights, we were in the Glory Hole area and had mats and mats of sand eels bumping against the lights. They were so thick we scoop netted about 9 - 5 gal pails full, and only stopped because we ran out of pails! As for under gunnel lights in the cockpit, we use four 40-inch BLUE Seamaster LED strip lights. They provide great illumination for dockside mood but also for keeping some low light on in cockpit for night canyon runs without glare or interference with navigation lights.
