Saturday report. My son Mike and I were scheduled for a wade fishing tournament on Saturday here in the Birmingham area. But because of heavy rain Friday it was postponed. Since Mike had already driven up from Auburn we decided to drive to Lake Logan Martin Saturday afternoon so he could bass fish a little and we caught a few, nothing big. Around dusk I took him back to the launch and he headed back to school. I got some minnows and headed back out on the lake. By the time I got on my spot and all set up it was after 9pm. By midnight I was only 4 shy of a limit (30) with all of them 10.5 to 14 inches, and was out of there by 12:30.

All in all, a very nice day/evening.

On one battery I run one 12V clamp on light plus a floating crappie light or a Q-beam submersible light. On another battery I run two of the 12V clamp-ons. Both batteries will run the lights for at least the 4-5 hours I'm out. I'm not sure how big the deep cycle batteries are, but the bigger they are the longer the lights would last.

The clamp-ons are really good for illuminating my pole tips, which I often spray paint fluorescent orange. I also clamp one to the top of my rear navigation light (which is behind us so it doesn't blind us) and shine it down into the boat, making it a lot easier to rig lines, remove swallowed hooks, etc. (And when my wife goes with me, she uses it to read her book by.) See the attached pictures to see where the clamp-ons are. In the front.jpg picture you can see the reflector clipped to the front of the boat and the black wire running from the battery on the right runs over the side of the boat to the floating light.
