Next, I bought a C-Light from ACR Electronics, It takes two AA batteries that should last 8 hours and can be seen for up to two miles. I cut three slots in the tubing for the light to nest into. When the light is in you can put some electrical tape to secure it.
The PVC was bolted to the crate with two 3/8" plastic nuts and bolts from a toilet seat ( no laughing ). This way there should be no rusting problem,and the tube is easily removed by hand ( no tools ).
I haven't fished the lake in years and I'm about five minutes from there. In the 70's I was on that lake four to five times a week and had bass up to six pounds. I used crank baits and rubber worms a lot. Then someone put white perch in and it ruined it for me. They never reached normal perch size and there were zillions of them. My brother had a 13# Tiger Musky. They were put in to eat the Perch. Don't know if they did their job. I'm sure there is still good fishing if you put your time in.
nivekelly , The milk crate also has two pole holders attached towards the front side. I can also put a lure bag or an insulated bag with some food in there. I would never think of putting a couple of beers in the crate!I do have a little trouble reaching the poles so I might have to move the whole deal foward a little bit.
Got the light from www.consumersmarine.com $8.50 + Shipping. It came in two days. The basket is free. We all have PVC tubing and if we don't, it's cheep. When I cut the end of the crate, I drilled a series of holes and used tie-raps to put it back together. You might see them in one of the pictures. I used big tie-raps to hold the tubes on but you could use 1/4" U-bolts if you felt more comfortable. Total cost for me was a little over $13 for the light W/shipping
