I wear a headlamp but recently purchased a few of the 2 dollar led push-button keychain lights from wally world. Easy to push and having a few of them always on a jacket, keychain, tackle box etc.

Slipperybob, I'd love to see pics of this project if you ever get around to it.....a lightbox of sorts?

Ok, here is my "best kept secret" when it comes to lighting up my glow jigs. I went to a camera store and bought an old flash for about 15 bucks.....LIGHTS THEM UP LIKE THE SUN WITH ONE POP!!!!

JimBuck,

If I ever get around to finishing it, as since I'm not a handyman. I wish things are as easy as putting Leggo pieces together, at which point if I do use Leggo pieces, I would glue them together for the final project. I still have to go buy a tub of leggo's or I might get one of those spaceship leggo kit. LOL's.

Any white led makes 'em glow like the sun. White florescent works well to, however led is the hot item these days.

Google Lure lightning, they mount to your flasher and run off your battery.

I use my Petzel LED headlamp or a Garrity 1watt LED penlight. Both work just fine...

I have a Lure Lightning and LOVE IT. It is the way to go for one that mounts on the flasher. Much brighter than the vex light or an single bulb led.

has anyone tried the LED - UV key chains from Best H0ng Kong? Everyone (including myself) likes the other LEDs that they have. Since the key chains are only $1 I thought that I would order a few.

They were pushed pretty heavily on here last year. Not a peep this year. Seemed like a good idea.

I really like my Lure Lightning. I will be running it on a battery mounted in my Otter Sportsmans Caddy. That way its not out of reach on my LX-5.

I also use a camera flash. Thats the best thing I have found to get a good long lasting glow.

When runnin and gunnin I just use a taser mounted on the zipper of my Arctic Armor jacket.

    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!
    • Hey Dave, I am sorry to hear that. If you need anything you have my number.  Send me a PM or text and let me know whats going on. Recurring infection? Low blood supply?     
    • Yes. But he has a great plan to utilize the excess rail capacity in the country by relocating those who disagree with him. It's gonna be a real gas. 
    • 100% A-OK is how that's working out, but I'm not surprised by the continued confusion. Even beside Texas vs Johnson, the idea of stripping citizenship from people hasn't stood up in court.
    • You must have been on some sh*tty ice for it to do that... Love my heavy spud bar, if it doesn't go through in a couple wacks I feel pretty darn confident in stepping...Spud bar,picks,pfd,rope, common sense all ya need
    • Protecting the rights of the id-oits, for the purpose of teaching others how not to be an id-iot is paramount. It goes both ways.........
    • What? You don't like the 1st amendment?
    • there is a seat belt law, why not have a ice picks law? if you are caught out ice fishing before the 1st of the year without picks, you get a "stupid" ticket.
    • So burning a Quran, or pouring bacon grease on it must be protected as well?  And flying the Stars and Bars?  How is that working out?
