Also has anyone heard of liquid-lite? It's a under water light that screws into your drain plug.

I was going to order the liquid- lite that mounts in drain plug but wanted to see if any one had that kind. They sell for 300$

As far as getting good quality underwater lights; this is the company I plan to go with; and is also an American Made product produced by a small business owner from what I understand.

Is there a use for lights in 300' or less water in the daytime? I'm just wondering of they will pull fish up if glow sticks or flashers are dropped on a down rigger during the day for deeper palagics.

Green and blue wavelengths travel farther through water that other wavelengths. If you are putting a light right under the boat to draw up fish, its kind of a waste of energy to use white light. White is made up of all wavelengths but the water filters most of them out fairly quickly.

I made this light that plugs into the cigarette lighter for about $30.
