Camera flash for Charging Ice Fishing Lures

6 posts in this topic

I 'm looking for some advice on a rechargeable/battery flash that I could use for glowing ice fishing lures. Don't know anything about cameras/flashes, but i do know they will charge up the lures much better than the little things you get at the sporting good stores for that. Anything reccomended, used equipment sites, etc. In-expensive if possible.

Thanks for any input, Moose

Moose, Evilbay will do you fine. Any cheap old bargain flash that still works well will be as good as an expensive, fancy one, and you can just buy some rechargeable AA batteries or whatever the flash takes and recharge them as needed.

How about the Lindy Tazer or the Atomic Glow Charger, both about $12. Might be cheaper than a flash and more handy to store.

Thanks for the replys. I have checked HSOList no luck so far, some there but very $$. I have used all the normal glow lights and they do work, but after fishing with a freind with the camera flash I decided I needed one of those! No comparison in brightness and lenght of glow time. I beleive he got his at a pawn shop for about $35.

Have you tried it with the flash from a point and shoot camera? Not nearly as strong of a light source, but if it works it might be something that you would have with you anyway or could pick up cheap enough somewhere. You could also try to rig up something from a couple of disposable cameras with built in flashes.

The pawn shop route is a good one. Also, if you go into a camera store and check prices for their smallest bargain-basement flash you might find something for an affordable price.

    • New ABC / WaPo Poll Shows Drop In Trump Favorability Courtesy Of Aggressive "Oversamples" Jan 17, 2017 3:42 PM   In the month leading up to the election on November 8th, we repeatedly demonstrated how the mainstream media polls from the likes of ABC/Washington Post, CNN and Reuters repeatedly manipulated their poll samples to engineer their desired results, namely a large Hillary Clinton lead (see "New Podesta Email Exposes Playbook For Rigging Polls Through 'Oversamples'" and "ABC/Wapo Effectively Admit To Poll Tampering As Hillary's "Lead" Shrinks To 2-Points").  In fact, just 16 days prior to the election an ABC/Wapo poll showed a 12-point lead for Hillary, a result that obviously turned out to be embarrassingly wrong for the pollsters. But, proving they still got it, ABC/Washington Post and CNN are out with a pair of polls on Trump's favorability this morning that sport some of the most egregious "oversamples" we've seen.  The ABC/Wapo poll showed an 8-point sampling margin for Democrats with only 23% of the results taken from Republicans...   ...while the CNN poll showed a similar 8-point advantage for Democrats with only 24% of respondents identifying as Republicans.
