THIS SMALL BUT EXTREMELY BRIGHT LIGHT, DEFINITELY BRINGS IN THE FISH
Customer questions & answers
Does this light actually work? What’s the scientific explanation?
Absolutely! It works by attracting tiny animals called zooplankton, which attract baitfish such as shad, herring, and minnows, which in turn attract predator fish such as bass, crappie, walleye, redfish, speckled trout, and other species
How well would this light work in a river with a strong current?
We’ve used it on the Mississippi river with good results. Definitely a good light.
About how large of diameter do these lights illuminate underwater? Average.
About 36″. We have ours next to each other in the pond. Out of the water, both are extremely bright and your eyes can’t tell a difference in brightness. ALSO, SECURE WITH SILICONE BEFORE 1st USE. 3 months and no problems.
What is a good size battery to buy for operating this? Id like to get at least 6 hours without draining the battery
The ideal battery would be 12-volt lead-acid battery 4-7AH.
Can you hook it up to the trolling motor battery or would it be better to have a small ATV battery for the light?
You can hook to trolling battery, I normally have a spare battery just Incase for emergency hook up. It’s an old motorcycle battery
How to prevent fish from eating it? I was thinking about using a sort of underwater dome? Anyone having this problem?
We don’t have any problem with fish eating the light they are just attracted to the light. We used it all summer
Can they be left in water for long periods?
Before using the light, We used clear silicone on the outside and inside of the cap where the wire is attached to be sure it didn’t leak. I left it in the water for 5 hours with no problem. It really does attract fish!
I have a toy car battery (12v and 9.5 ah) and a golf cart battery (12v and 35ah). which would be better to use?
Any 12v battery will work. The LED will last for hours and you will be amazed at how fast the fish will show up. Good luck and happy fishing.
Does it sink by itself? Or do you have to connect a weight?
It has built-in weight It sinks by itself
Any metal parts at the light side? Saltwater friendly?
It appears to be very well sealed and all plastic/rubber. We took the advice of others and used silicone around the ends to preserve the lamp.
As for the light itself – -LOVE it! Amazing how well it works.
What color are the lights? Is there a fuse for electrical protection?
The color is very bright green. There is not a fuse but you could add one for like 5 bucks. The wire is very well protected so there wouldn’t really be a need for a fuse though.
Will it hurt the light to be used out of the water to light up a camping area if there is no water that can help keep it cool? Can it overheat itself?
LEDs do not produce much heat We don’t see it being an issue. I’ve used mine as a light on my boat to find tackle, or tie on a new jig.
