I believe that red dissipates at around 10 feet.

Jim is correct, every thing I have read has red turning to black at 10'...

I was always a big proponent of keeping lights off the water until..... the night James Waldron shot the fisherman of Plum Island video...he was following each fish with a spot light, the water was no deeper than 3' and one of the fish had another swimming right along side of her right in the spot light... that changed my thinking... i have another spot that i regularly take fish under a bright white flashing beacon that marks the entrance to Ipswich harbor...

I had always wondered about this as many fish are attracted to bright lights. Even when we fished some rigs at night off FL we had bright lights shinning into water under boat and the fish were swarming

I think so also as I was fishing with Sudsy and he had is red light. He was not standing much more than 20 or 30' away and unless the light shined right at me I could not see it. Even when shining at me al I could see was a very faint / dim red light. If you don't have a red light and don't feel like buying one then at many dollar stores there is transparent red tape that can be put over lens

I know its only spring time, but hit scusset in September in the evennings and into dark. Again at daybreak. Often, bass will push bait onto the sand and its prime flyfishing as well as plugging.
Good Luck

i live in bourne near the canal. i see sunfish every year on multiple occasions.i even found one dead on sandwich beach. very ugly. as far as tuna, i have never seen one. though i did see a splash that looked and sounded like someone dropped a vw bug in to the ocean. i have also been told from an old timer he saw a tuna on the west end a few years back.....i believe him
