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.

    • I am interested in what this cough muffler looks like
    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Emergency-Battery-Backup-Sump-Pump-System-BWE/100055241   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work. 
    • Ended up being the clutch dog and reverse gear were wore out... 550 for parts...I almost ended up getting a whole new lower unit, but a buddy was able to find the parts...The shop said they discontinued the parts Yada Yada Yada, but some shop in Hackensack was able to find them I guess...just want the dang boat back ha...
