About

This project actually was born on a boat 5 miles out on lake mille lacs in Minnesota, I was night fishing for walleyes at 10pm and I was trying to tilt my head trying to get my baseball hat clip on my bait. After a few frustrating minutes of bouncing around I decided that there had to be a easier way to see while fishing in low light. The next day while sitting on my couch at home with a fishing pole between my legs trying to reproduce the motions of the boat i figured out that if the light was attached to the pole that it was much easier to focus on your lure. In order for this device to be able to stay attached while fishing I came up with a design of the rubber post with a led light on the end. While re simulating on the couch with the new design and playing out in my mind that night on mille lacs i remembered hooking myself while trying to hold my lure and reaching for a replacement lure. This is when i came up with the idea of some kind of clamp or hooking device. A week later while tinkering in my basement I came up on a voltage meter and as i was placing it in a drawer i noticed the alligator clips and the idea was born. The finished product is a led light on a flexible rubber post with a alligator clip on one end that can wrap around any fishing pole, bait bucket, stick or wrap around anything. .

Risks and challenges

Challenges at this point is capitol funds, I have a prototype that works and have turned down orders for hundreds because of the mfg needs a order of a minimum of 10,000 plus molds and tooling.
