Night Bobby® Lighted Floats
Not as good as expected
I can't make this work in a stopped position. I can only use it as a sliding or floating bobber. Very frustrating.
I also think that the light actually scares the fish off when using in a pond or other shallow waterway.

Great..just pay close attention
I use them for catfishing i love em. Works really well, the batterys last pretty long but you must make sure you keep the lid very tight. If water gets in it at all its gameover

I bought thi for night fishing for catfish at Puddingstone reservoir, CA. It lights up bright at night and was fun to watch go under water indicating a strike but ultimately failed when I set the hook and reeled in a 3 pound catfish. The problem was I got the fish but the bobber fell off the line during the fight. I had to fish without a lighted bobber the rest of the night I am gonig to try the Lindy® Thill Splash Brite™ Float next time. It seems that the lindy will stay on the line even during a good fight.

been using these since the 80's
been using these since the 80's, way before the rattle.
this is my always go to thing when i night fish. like i said, i been using these since i was a kid, i'm 34 now. certain hits, can knock them off the line. i had many knocked off, and lost a few before in the past, but i lived near a lake and would just get em back the next day.
we use to take out the batteries when we were finished, so the life of the battery would last. what i thought of years ago was just take the one battery out and turn it upside down and put it back in when not in use. when you need to use it, just unscrew the top and pop out the battery and put it right side up.
another good thing to do is buy a bunch of replacement batteries and keep them in your tackle box or whatever you have.
the day i stop using these is either when im dead or they close up shop. oh, plus they cast real far as well.
these are hands down the best thing you could buy for night fishing/cat fishing.. all the bells, and the rattle bobbers, or the flourescent yellow ones all stink.
you could use it as a slip or stationed.
just check your line and make sure you have it hooked up right, these are alot different than a regular bobber, in size, weight and connecting it to the line. they could fly off if not put on the line correctly. .
