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???

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

      Made it out last night. Beautiful night. Caught a bunch of Crappies, sunnies, a norsky and a few walleyes. All CR. Amazing how quiet the lake was. I was the only boat out for the most part. First boat in parking lot at 5:30 and no AI inspector this time. Have not seen them for quite awhile now.... Water temp was 78. Panfish were caught on simple Jig/plastic in about 12 feet along shoreline weeds. Walleyes on spinner/crawlers in 17-20 on midlake structure.

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      This rain is keeping the rum muddy.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick
