I use the LED disco lights. We were deep dropping in 550' catching a few Snowy's Sunday and one of the lights wasn't even on..!!

I use a light to deep drop - typically 600-1000'. If we drop one rig with the light and one without the light it seems the one with a light will out fish the other almost 2 to 1. They just seem to find it quicker. I have never thought to try it in 300' - 350' but let me know your results.
