Bought lights when this thread was hot. Finally getting around to putting some together this evening since I am stuck with work tomorrow. I love this thread.

@JimD...just saw your old post about gigging bull frogs. My son and his buddy sometimes want to go fishing so bad that they go to a neighborhood pond that doesn't have fish, but has huge frogs. They cast rubber floating frog bass baits for them, and catch big frogs on the smaller frogs.

@GleCow...your pics motivated me to finally get my bulbs out of the garage and sling these together. I will be looking around for batteries today while out running errands.

There is more to light than just watts/lumens. There's another thing called Color Rendering Index (CRI) that has to do with how well human eyes can make use of the light. The range is 1-100, and the higher the better. Those nasty yellow high pressure sodium lights they sometimes use on roads have a really low CRI. Things are lit up, but you just about can't read under them even if you try. Lots of fluorescent and LED lights have a low CRI. Some of the old cheapo battery operated fluorescents we used to call "anti-light". They lit things up, but trying to tie a knot was torture. You want a light that has the highest CRI you can get, and that usually means something more yellow, because our eyes see best in natural sunlight.

A lot of the old DIY flounder lights had a pretty tight beam. You can swing them back and forth, and see flounder, but it gets on my nerves. Jerry's LED's makes some great lights for flounder boats. Low current draw for the amount of light, high CRI, warm color, and a pretty wide beam. He now makes a ready-made underwater light. If you enjoy building things, that's fine. But if you're just wanting to go floundering, I would check Jerry's. They also stock them at the Tackle Box in Victoria, but I don't know where else.

What's my best option green led, warm white, neutral white, or bright white hand held flounder light. Any where from matagorda through Galveston bays...
Thanks
