Hi guys,

I saw this prawn light or flounder light in the Ray's Outdoors store recently.

Has anyone tried such a product?? I am not sure whether it would put out enough light to catch flounder etc.

But it would sure beat lugging around a car battery!!!

Cheers, Glen

Scroll all the way to the bottom and it will be the one that looks like a pacifier.

That one you showed is way too much money. You can pick the ones above for about 6 dollars from BassProShop

hi ivan, this light is not for squid (though i guess it could be used for squid too).

it is for spot lighting flounder (and other fish) at night time so they can be caught with a hand spear.

We've got a flounder gigging light that we think is a heck of a lot better than carting around a cooler full of car battery. Check out LEDAdventures.com - You can see our light. It really changes the sport of flounder gigging - Not so much gear to carry around.

Plus more room in the cooler for flounder. :P

Hope no one minds the plug for our gear, but we like using it and know that others do too.

Out of interest wouldnt you have to watch out for crocs floundering in aussie?

those led lights pictured are crap! I've been floundering for quite a few years and started using a halogen light pole with a motorcycle battery, which wasnt bad until it broke. My fishing buddy used an led pole like you showed which he broke and had replaced a few times, i never thought much of the led ones not much power and the light is narrow. With floundering the better your light the more you will catch, by far the best light i've used is a kerosene lantern which is what they used 50years+ ago. My mate now has this one http://www.fishingki...der_lights.html while i still use a lantern. Be interested to know how big you get them in aussie, i speared a 42cm one the other day.
