You can see the fish better in most cases. Nothing changes as far as your shooting goes though. Good luck and be careful!

A vessel when engaged in trawling, by which is meant the dragging through the water of a dredge net or other apparatus used as a fishing appliance, shall exhibit:

1. two all-round lights in a vertical line, the upper being green and the lower white, or a shape consisting of two cones with their apexes together in a vertical line one above the other;
2. a masthead light abaft of and higher than the all-round green light; a vessel of less than 50 meters in length shall not be obliged to exhibit such a light but may do so;
3. when making way through the water, in addition to the lights prescribed in this paragraph, sidelights and a sternlight.

The additional signals described in Annex II to these Rules apply to a vessel engaged in fishing in close proximity to other vessels engaged in fishing.

Beer stays cooler at night, that's a good thing! Need aiming fluid.

You don't need polarized glasses, the fish will appear as light-colored glowing reflections of light instead of sometimes looking like shadows, and you will hate the generator noise.
Aiming stays the same.

Also, no sunburn, but maybe more bugs.

Usually less wind making for smoother water and better visibility. Once you bowfish at night with lights you will never want to bowfish during the day, unless of course you come to Florida. We tend to like to go out during the day sometimes! LOL!!
