Cool. Ben we need to prefish down there. You know just to make sure we can find the bridge or fish or something like that.

Been playing around with homemade lights today. Hardest thing to find is a globe. Only thing I could come up with that works so far is a shot glass. I would prefer to use plastic but just couldnt find anything today. I hit walmart, home depot, 3 dollar stores and a grocery store. I did buy about 10 different chepo led lights to play with. Here is what I came up with pretty cheap.

PVC was cheap at home depot. buck 50 for a big long piece of 1/2 inch and 30 cents or so for couplers and ends. This light is a 9 led light I found for 2.50 at a dollar store.

Image

I used electrical tape and taped the coupler to the light and the shot glass to the light. The light has a bottom push button so I can just pull the coupler from the pipe to turn it on and off. Still experimenting and will post more as I find better stuff.

I like it Tracy, too bad I don't have any shot glasses to use, or any shot glasses period.
One of the common globes I have seen was a babyfood tuperware( or any very small plastic with lid container)container. Cut the hole in the top put light in and tape it on. It is probably not as bright as the real thing but you don't invest a whole lot. And as long as you stay near a few guys with bright lights you should be good.

nice looking light tracy. I built mine tonight and came up with this. I found a night light with a fully enclosed globe (Amerelle Forever-Glo Cylinder Nite Lite if anyone is interested) at home depot and went with that, although the shot glass idea would have allowed for a nice personal touch.

Nice. How tall is it?

edit: nevermind 4ft. That will be a little tall but will work. Mine are that long and I have found I tend to hit them on the bridge when slamming against the pilings.
