installing bobber lights

Recommended Posts

Walli1

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

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

      Del, I have never bothered to skin or scale them as I do not eat the skin or fins. Cliff

      Hope you at least get some rain up there this spring Kelly.  We were pretty dry until the past two months.

      It says 3 amp fuse in the manual. I'm going to run it to the motor battery. I'll post how it works. Thanks skunked again!

      I'm curious about the walleye wings... do you skin or scale them?   Or is it not a problem?

      We miss the leadership of Ricky Rubio ... Teague is a very bad defender and does not see the floor.  Rubio had his best shooting percentage season ever and career points scored of his career.  Wish we could re-do that trade.   Don't get me going .... among players that play the most minutes ... we are now the 7th oldest team in NBA???   2 year window to win ... we should have kept our talent and let the cake bake!

      We still have 24" of ice on the bay & we're only 6-8 miles from where they set the nets. Doubt they'll be starting anytime soon over there.
