    thanks Brett. Pretty good information there. I used to stumble by them all the time in the FS Forum. You can find pretty good deals on them so I figured somebody might have a lead for me. I'll keep my eye out.

    Dang, Never realized there were so many other products out there. Pretty cool.

    Why would I want one? I have always fished the dock lights of both The Grand Canal in Satellite Beach and the dock lights on the Banana River and always loved it. I am moving in with my brother who stays on a little canal that goes of the Grand Canal that is loaded with little snook, tarpon, and trout. I would like to sight fish them at night under a light.

    After watchin' the video it all makes sense.
    Saves on wear and tear on the boat,
    when you can get 'em from the dock!

    :cool:

    Plus dock owners are getting bitter about people eating their pet snook.

    what he said.

    If your in the market for a protable one, I have to put my .02 in. My pa has one, that I have used several times. I have put it in fishy areas...like AMI City Pier. They did not produce anything. They really need to be in the water for more than 24 hours to really produce anything. Fixed light is the way to go.

    I have extensive use with these lights from my sword fishing adventures.

    Here is the short and skinny:

    Hydroglows work great no two ways about it. They output more than enough light and are easy to operate (comes with alligator clips). The only down fall is that they do break fairly easy. However, if it does break you just have to call hydroglow and they send you a new one in exchange for the old one.


    The other choice that has not been listed here is called a "swordlight" These are actually local and designed for the rough fishing conditions associated with sword fishing. They are more durable than the hydroglow but not quite as much light. The guys at swordlight are great people who are out to help you.

    BY THE WAY.... if you go to www. swordfishingcentral.com and search their forum you could probably find a used one that some one is selling and save a little bit of money while helping some one else out.

    Thanks for some more info on the lights. I will make sure to check them out.

    Skinny Water: I was thinking the same thing that you were about having to keep it on for an extended amount of time to get results. On the other hand if I set it up on a consistant basis in the same location I think eventually that I would have some results. The canal (more like a small creek) pretty much always has fish in it and I catch them at night blind casting but I would like to throw some flies into a light and watch them eat. Pretty much I am just interested in seeing if it would work!!!

    Here is a trout that I caught 5 nights ago throwing a DOA cal
