Fished truman, fairfield area on pole timber 35 ft deep on saturday night.
Caught limit on minnows between 8-12 ft down. Real slow, full moon, usually
don't do as well on a full moon at night fishing. Pitched the minnow away from
the light and let it come back to it, crappie would hit as soon as it got into
the lighted area. Used a green light in the water, unfair test due to full moon,
but also used one in the boat on a pvc stand, worked great.
Put out a pale light i could see my rods and light was good enough to tie on hooks.
Best thing, very few bugs attracted, won't say none, but very few, i usually
use a hooded work light with a yellow bulb for light in the boat, this time of year, still
attracts a lot of bugs, the green light didnt, only down side was rods must have the
ends painted white, one ugly stick, unpainted, snuck in the boat, i tried it but it was a nogo
all of my other rods are painted and worked fine. I hate to buy bass pro stuff, usually
overpriced, but the 21 inch lights worked great for me.

glad to hear the bps lights work good, I have the shorty but not had the opportunity to use it yet, dang weather won't cooperate with me much right now. When I have time, it's threatening storms, when I don't have time, it's good weather, dang it.
