Got the idea and put it together literally with random stuff lying around. The light is a single green flashing LED which should last for many hours on the set of alkaline AA batteries. The capsule is as waterproof as I could make it, sealed with silicone and all. Got plenty of line on it which is adjustable for the depth of water.

I will let the video explain the rest

Come on warm weather... I need you

Now is the time to use it. I have caught more catfish in the colder weather.

Hey Catman. We need to design one that will fit somehow in a pool noodle! We could sell the crap out of them!

I bet it would sell, just gotta figure out a good way to manufacture the light-up part, since I made it with random garbage...

I know where we can get a hundred hour light. Just need the application.

The light has to be waterproof and have a switch that can be activated by a tug on the line... I bet mine will last at least 100 hours, it's a single 5mm LED on 2 AA batteries.

that what we use is pool noodles can get about 4 fishing jugs off one big pool noodle cut them then take a coat hanger bend it and stick it threw the float with 2 tips hanging out set them to the top of noodle then tie line to bottom of coat hanger and set it up with hook and add weight and adjust line to depth of water...fish can't pull coat hanger out cause the tips hit the side and won't go threw it ... we added flashing led's to it but sometimes water makes them die out fast when fish splash or go under... haven't figured out to make it more waterproof
