    I bought some eight pound weights for them. I didn't like the idea of trying to make a cast and pouring lead. Likely would have hurt myself at some point in that process.

    Very nice light. I took a shortcut and purchased lights from Amazon. They were cheap ~$25, I'll see how long they last. Probably going to regret it.

    If/when you need to replace, the Gator Tough lights are the best quality you can find. A bit more, maybe, but lifetime guarantee against leakage. Can't beat that.

    Those look really good.
    How many do you need to fish for shrimp?

    You only need a minimum of one light to catch shrimp. I usually use 5 in an arc when I anchor my 17' boat sideways to the current in Oakhill. Check out my setup in the drone picture section. The more area you can see and reach, the more shrimp you can catch.

    If you read Kens reports you would know how many full pulls he got last year!
