    OK, I tried out something new tonight and it was the
    coolest thing ever. I fished the docks while it was
    raining with a new product called Reel Lites.

    It's a 612 led submersible light ($124.00) with
    2600 lumen's and I can truly say that it lights up everything.

    The plankton and minnows showed up within minutes.
    Had my first fish hooked on in less than five minutes.
    We fished for 2 hours and at one time, we were
    catching whites one after another. It's really neat to see
    the fish swimming around the green light.

    Ended up catching walleye, LMB, drum, and tons of
    whites. You have to check them out.
    Reel Lites Hook'Em!!

    Note:
    Shane purchased the light and was so impressed
    asked to become a Reel Lites Pro-staff

    "We have had a couple different ones from Cabalas and Academy, but I really like the one we ordered
    from Reel-Lites.com. He makes them with LEDs instead of fluorescent. It was much brighter than the
    comparable fluorescent ones. My cousin actually ordered the light that we are using. We plan on
    getting a couple more. They are much brighter and much more efficient. Great Product!"

    We had the opportunity to take the Reel Lite 408 LED up to the lake over weekend. The
    light performed without any problem. We removed the alligator clips as we had discussed on the
    phone and connected it to a DC converter and timer so that would come on each night around 9 PM
    and stay on until 2 AM.

    The number of fish that collected around the light was unbelievable! There where hundreds of bait
    fish, perch and Bass around the light.

    We first placed it in 8 foot water at the bottom of the lake and it illuminated the area perfectly. On the
    last night we moved it to the dock in about 4 foot of water and it was like looking into an aquarium with
    all the fish around the dock the light attracted.

    I tried to get you some pictures but couldn't inactivate the flash. This caused a reflection on the
    waters surface so that you couldn't see the illumination from the light. I'll try again in a few weeks with
    another camera when I get back up the house and try and get you some good pictures.

    Thank you again for making the modifications to the cord to allow us to move it further from the dock
    and into deeper water. It worked just as I had thought it would.

    Sincerely Bob Stippel

    I used to use the halogens from wally world.
    Little over a year ago i ran across Reel Lites


    I tested them hard in clear to muddy water and open water & through the ice.
    I found them to draw all kinds of fish in!




    boat loads more pics and vids here to prove it.
    Photo Bucket of more fish

    Videos By Amishman



    Most any lights will draw bait then fish(on most nights) the real advantages
    to these Reel Lites are low batt. draw
    (I now use 612 led light, on a vexilar batt.,
    three nights in a row flathead fishing, with no noticable loss of charge),

    no bugs drawn, super durability, use in or out of the water,
    no heat, patio lights, drop/work light, emergency auto light,
    dock light, boat light, ice shanty light, decades of bulb life,

    special order cord length and special order light length/size...............
    buy one and it should be the last one youll ever need to buy!

    I was talking to Steel guy about Reel lites at the Slabfest
    about the quality of the light and the output effect
    that the 712 Led gives off about a 20' mushroom effect of light.

    These lights are outstanding for night fishing.
    They pre-weighted and stay underwater at the
    depth you set with a bobber so they don't draw bugs.
    If you've ever thought about night fishing,
    get yourself on of these Reel Lites

    "I have the ones specifically designed for bank fishing for myself do to back issues,
    and also purchased fishing lights as gifts to others.
    . Reel Lites really have a superior light, are easy to use as well.
    Tested the 714 LED for 30 hours with the EZ Battery pack with very little battery or Lumen’s lost.
    Thinking could use the battery pack close to 50 hours before total battery drained.
    Makes awesome setup for bank, pier, Kayak, as opposed to lugging around big battery.

    Happens you are no longer Crappie fishing….but crappie catching.
    You will like Bob's lights too, the light and power pac guru."

    Hey Bob you have another order your way from me -
    this time a 100 LED in green.

    Ordered the 510 Led and worked great, see the crappie attached photo.

    Going to use the 100 led inside the boat for night light.

    For anyone on the fence about this light it's a solid unit.
    Every component is thicker/stronger than the
    goofy mass produced Chinese products

    Bob, we are finally starting to catch some Crappie under the light.
    We had 2 that were big, almost in the boat, and they fell off.
    We did get some smaller ones .

    I sure love the light. It not only shines around where you’re fishing,
    but on the other side of the boat too.

    Can't believe how bright it is!

    I had it in the water 10 minutes and had "critters" swimming all around it,
    and then the minnows came in, then the Crappie.

    My wife & I really had fun. We’re starting to learn a little better.

    "I have used these lights from the boat at night and they work great.....
    What I like is the low amp draw, you do not have to worry about pulling
    your battery down.

    I like these lights because they are small in size without lost of lumen's
    and does not take up a lot of room.

    Does a great job of bring the bait fish in which in turn attracts bigger
    great lights at a good price."

    "New REEL LITES In Came in today when I got home from work
    and the new REEL LITE was in the mail box.

    Could not stand it ……so I opened up the package to take a look
    at a REEL LITE 102 which is only 4” inches long, it will be easy to store in the boat.

    Can't wait to get it in the lake and check it out with the AQUA - VU,

    Here is a picture of light in pond hooked up to a 5ah battery.
    Picture does not do it justice"

    Simple but deadly is Bob's Green Light
    Finally got a chance to do a little dawn,
    dusk and night fishing to try out Reel-lite.
    My pastor and a few friends went out and
    the scenery was breathtaking. We did better at night.
    The reel-lites brought the minnows in......then!!!

    Another Nightstalk on the Hill 5-3
    I had to hit the water last night. I wasn't sure to go to my striper hole or crappie spot.

    My dad talked me into the crappie spot. It was a great choice. He is always right. We got setup around 8pm and left at 11:30pm.
    We managed to catch 32 crappies.

    I tried out my new green 714 LED Reel Lite from Bob Spare. It was a great investment. The sky was bright and we still had tons of bait.

    Hello Bob
    Couldn’t believe how fast I got my lights!!
    Thanks for the crank bait in the package as well.

    Light worked great!!
    Just like it says...light attracted zooplankton...lil fish...bigger fish...big fish.

    I only caught 1 Cat under the lights, bait shop was outa minnows.

    Ran the light from 2000 to approximately 0130.
    Didn’t even put a dent in the battery. Maybe 5%.

    Thanks I am gona buy more!!!!

    Bob, I got the pair of green lights today, hooked them up to my battery.
    Wow, they are brighter than I expected. I can't wait to see them in the water.
    I can give my old floating headlights away now.
    Thanks for the help,
    and I
    know I'm going to like these.

    "Reel-lites" are the ticket! way better than halogens and other lights, because they are versitile.

    They can do double duty as a work light or tail gate/yard party lights.
    They are very durable and dont get hot(IN OR OUT OF WATER).

    Very very low batt. draw. bulbs will way outlast other lights on the market.

    Treat them rite and they should out live you! lol "REEL-LITES" are just a better light!

    "Got it: Had to try it out, sure puts out a bright light. Can't wait to have it installed on the boat.

    Your workmanship is top notch and I'm very pleased with your product. Bob, thanks so much.

    I look forward to doing more business with you".

    "Well I have the 612 Led Reel lite an it’s GREAT
    No weight needed to sink, very bright, low draw on battery.

    One full year of using light and it still going strong.

    Good people to deal with fast ship. Wish I could post pictures". Pumpkin head

    I have been reading all of the good comments posted
    about your lights on the Texas Fishing Forum
    for about a year now and with the crappie spawn
    starting in my neck of the woods.

    I finally pulled the trigger and ordered a couple
    Can't wait to get them and put them to work.

    I have been telling my dad about them too.
    I expect he will be placing an order as soon as he sees mine.

    bob,
    I forgot to let you know I received the light,
    like a dummy it did even get wet other night

    I forgot it at home anyways I have turned it on
    and I believe I will need sun block cause that
    dang thing is bright.

    I will let you know how it works the draw it does
    on my setup on my next night stalk!!!

    Now for the best part we have another member on
    CDC that’s looking to change his current setup and
    I told him about your 612's and 712's but I told him
    before he buys he is welcome to see your 612 in
    action me and him will be going on a night stalk
    I hope he gets his new lights from you!!!

    I got my decals today thank you very much.
    My dad and I used the 714 light over the weekend.

    The lake we were fishing is suffering from a very bad algae
    problem in visibility is very low. We threw the light over
    the side of the boat after dark and caught crappie all night.

    The second night we didn't have much time to fish but it is a
    crystal clear water resivoir. We stopped on our way off
    the lake and tossed out the light and left it sink to the bottom
    in 18ft of water and could see the light and the
    vegetation with some fish swimming on bottom.

    We moved the light off the bottom to around three feet
    below the surface and in literally 30 seconds there was a
    huge cloud of plankton and small minnows around the light.

    Very awesome product. Seems to be very durable and very bright.
    Of course both nights I forgot my good camera.
    I will send pictures and another testimony later this week
    when I get time to fish with the light longer.
    Thanks for the outstanding service and exceptional product.

    You are honest and trusting guy.
    Its a pleasure talking to you and your wife.

    I am looking forward to catching a bunch of crappie
    with the 306 Led Reel Lite.

    I found that the department store lights just
    don't stand up.

    When my knee gets well I am going to try my new Reel-lites
    out by making a trip to Lake Erie and getting after some nice
    Walleye there in the Sandusky area.

    I know the ones you madefor my bank fishing trips
    here in Alabama have done a wonderful job of attracting baitfish
    to the bank and then it was easier to catch the crappies in the
    dusk to 10pm time frame.

    They are great lites.
