Thanks BG, so do I need to order the corded or cordless then?
You can buy a double cigarette lighter plug at autozone that has alligator clips. We used to use a spotlight while running bank poles and that's how we plugged it in. I've never had my full moon act up but I dont do a whole lot of night fishing either. Just a few times a year. It does suck stepping over the cords in the boat but I just couldn't make myself drill the holes...lol
If you’re willing to drill the holes in your boat for the plugs, that’s the way to go, IMO. If not, get the corded.
If you do drill holes mask it with tape and start indention by drilling backwards. On a fiberglass boat anyway.
Just study some YouTube videos first. I didn’t want to drill holes either and bought the corded version. Pain in the ass really, you will have to route cord out of way every time you change sides.
The full moon moonlight is great. You can anchor up and have shad swarming green light in no time. Or it helps to light bank for casting. If we don’t have big power draw I haven’t had a problem.
Stainless guitar jacks are what are being discussed, I have 2 or 3 stan sloans myself.
heck, we don't use any lights night fishing except running to our spots and using a headlamp when we get one close to the boat.
How do you see your line?
don't. we're bass fishing, casting to the bank. every once in a while we hit the rocks/bank, not often. your eyes get adjusted but the cloudy nights are the most challenging, no moon no stars no light.
When we bass fish at night we use a black light. I like see my line because some times a bass will just pick up the bait an swim away slowly with it.
I feel like it helps me pick up more of the light bites.
Yeah gimme a light and fluorescent 20 lb Stren but they’re hell when the willowflies are hatching, some nights we’d stop 3-4 times to bail them out. My buddy got nailed by one of those big yellow hornets one night mixed in with the willowflies. His hand swelled up so bad ended our night.
we only fish spinner baits, no light bites. the lines tight as soon as the bait hits the water, feel every thump of the blade. bumping a rock will wake u up.
We fish jigs, worms, brush hogs, etc
Yeah, I fish plastics at night 95% of the time.
Plastic and Jigs
Yes, and my jigs have plastic trailers now. I haven't used pork trailers in 20 years.
