Anyone use those glow sticks or light sticks while fishing? I know they are used with swordfish rigs but has anyone rigged them to do deep bottom fishing?

Any ideas suggestions welcome.

Just a note, If you use the standard light sticks for deep droping (ie. the ones you get a a dolar store or Wal-Mart) they can not take the pressure below about 200 feet, and they will leak.

tried one for snapper, last time at night and had much better luck with just a chunk bait.

I had a light stick I bought from Walmart down around 300 feet without any problems last time I was out at night. I didn't catch much with it, but wasn't catch much with anything at that spot.

Cabelas Bargain cave in Ft Worth has a couple of the LED type plastic housed LED grren lights( looks lke the pictures I always see of the swordfish lights). Think they were around $10 each???? took batteries, they worked- I turned those bright little suckers on!
