Berkley Floating Light
Berkley Floating light
Best light out there for the money. Yes, draws a lot of power, but also draws in the most bait fish in side by side tests on Lake Mead, where I fish at night for striped bass.
When the light burns out, get a halogen bulb from an auto parts store. They work great!
Never, ever use your cranking battery to power a floating light, That is unless you can walk on water!

Just as advertised
I researched this product for a week looking at videos and making sure this is the one i wanted. I took it out the weekend I got it and it worked just like the videos showed. If you want to see the videos go to youtube and type in "night fishing with light" and you should get some good videos. This light does not use much battery. I used it for 3 hours running off of my 2 trolling batteries and when I got home i tested them to see how much was left. The tester showed 12 volts so I didn't use any battery at all.

Light needed to be fixed twice
I'm disappointed in the quality of this light. First, the 5amp fuse kept blowing (at the lake), so I spent 10 dollars on fuses to realize it needed a 6 amp fuse.
Also, the soder keeping the wires connected melted off and broke the connection (at the lake).
After I bought a sodering iron and fixed the connections, it works great.
I would advise to test this light for at least 30 minutes at home before you take it to the lake.
I was very frustrated with the light not working the first two trips to the lake.

Lots of minnows, few crappie
Still working out the method, so far it attracts plenty of bait but few crappie, might be due to poor location choices. One of the contacts to the light came loose during first use. I am thinking that a submersible light that attracts the bait at the level of the game fish might work better than one that pulls the bait to the surface.
