What’s the Best Lens Color for Polarized Deep Sea Fishing Sunglasses?

Luckily, this one has a pretty simple answer. While we have no shortage of fishing lens color options, for deep sea fishing the most popular setup is a grey base tint with a blue mirror.

The ocean doesn’t offer any protection from the sun, and you need to block as much light as possible. A mirror coating reflects excess light away from the lens to give you an effectively darker lens. Combined with a polarizing filter, you’ll easily see through glare even on the brightest days.

Something to keep in mind with this setup is that adding a blue mirror to a grey lens can add a bit of yellow to the lens to make the grey look more of a bronze or amber color when looking through it. You’ll still get the dark and protective nature of its grey base, but it may not look as grey as you might expect. The degree to which it adds a yellow hue is dependent upon the density of the mirror coating, but with the added yellow, you also gain some contrast.
