installing bobber lights

7 posts in this topic

Picked myself up a set of bobber lights and I'm a little nerves about drilling a couple 4 1/4 inch holes in the side of the boat, has anyone put there own bobber lights on? or am I making myself nervous for no reason? I've drilled holes for install pumps and drains but nothing that needs that big of hole, it's the same just a bigger hole right? confused.gif

Remind me what a bobber light is.

Bobber lights light up the water along side the boat so its easier to net fish when out at night or early morning

My suggestion would be to contact the manufacturer. A hole that big might compromise the integrity of the hull under stressful operation. Isn't there a way you could rig a light on the gunwale???

Ahh,

I just use one of them small headlights, keeps the hands free and no gizmos to attach to the boat...

Hey Walli,

I agree, just get some "cat eyes"! They clip right onto the brim of your "lucky hat"...the one you are always wearin' in your pix while pullin' in hose HUGE eyes!!!

I have cats eyes I put on my hat, they work but I do alot of early morning fishing before the sun comes up and I just need more light on the side of the boat, these bobber lights have a option of a spot or flood and will light up the water like wrigley field so I won't have a problem getting em in the net. cool.gif

      I don't know what's wrong yet but I'm guessing it's not good. More pictures and drs in coming weeks.

      Was the bad rotator cup cause from catching to many big fish?If that's the case I'll take one for the team

      Heck of a float today!  I released 22 and biggest was just over 19.  Lotta nice sized fish.  My friend was out for the first time on the river and just 2nd time in a yak and he had a ball. Ended up with 8 after he started using my stick baits and got the hang of it.  First time up on that stretch this year.

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,
