Floats without a weight and you can vary the effect. When you are finished fishing you can use it as a boat or camper light that doesn't affect night vision or attract bugs. It only draws 1 amp and even though the fluorescent green bulb is not replaceable it is rated at over 2,500 hours of use. 15' cord. 12V battery clips.

On the first fishing trip with this light it died on me within the first 15 minutes. The light started to flicker then went completely out. Luckily I had a back up.

These lights really attract baitfish. I hang 3 around my barge and swarms of bait are attracted. We caught 25 Sacalait (Crappie) on Toledo Bend in just over an hour. So far so good!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by happeebody 9 inch submersible fishing light
don't buy this light it absolutely does not work and it gives off so much interference that you cant even use the depth finder within 20 feet of it it totally negates your sonar. I wanted to use this through the ice to attract plankton and kokanee salmon. Unfortunately it is a complete waste of money

Green penetrates further in the water than some elements of white light. There have been some studies done and in most water the green attracts more fish. In super-clear saltwater people prefer the blue because it penetrates further than the green. The green light does not attract bugs like the white light does. If the lumens are equal, go with the green light.
I own one of the original ones and I changed it from a submersible to a floater by attaching styrofoam. It is a very bright light and attracts the baitfish, which attract other fish. Yes I catch catfish using it. The fish tend to stratify with white bass at about 7-10 ft and crappie at 12-14 ft and then the cats and stripers at the bottom. That would be in approixmately 22-24 ft dept.
There are lights that you can use that are made for sword fishing. They are not super bright but they do not require 12 volt batteries. They run off of AA batteries and are about 5 inches long. They are called LED Deep-Drop lights. They cost about $7.00 each.
