I've only just received mine from eBay. I haven't used it yet but have plugged it in. It does seem to be a very bright green light.
Even though it says in the ad that the light is submersible, it floats  ???  ???
I'll let you know when I use it or visa versa.


Cheers
Vince.

The theory behind it seems ok

But then again there is the hi-clone 😂

Just saw this post so sorry for the late reply.  Yes I've used them but just not here in Oz although they may do well on squid and we did something similar at night down south on shallow reef with lanterns for squid.  They are used a lot in the US for panfish bait.  So as the link says, Crappie light.  That's a fresh water fish.

We did try them when down south in gulf for attracting the shrimp (prawns) in and they worked.  BUT keep in mind, over there, the shrimp boats really only run at night, will sit and sort catch under lights b4 going back to the factory to off load so the redfish, drum, etc are used to feeding of the bait that balls up under them. 

Never used them in water more than 40-50 deep tho'.

Just remember they are not designed to attract the target species, they attract the smaller bait the target species chase.

I used mine last night for the first time while drifting around Boggy Creek. Made no difference.
