Easy Illumination for Your Livewell

Live bait is the life blood of many fishing trips, and a number of those trips start before daylight. That’s why most livewells now feature illumination so you can see how your liveys are faring. A light also helps keep the bait from bumping into the walls of the well. But what happens when the light malfunctions? First thing, turn it off, because a corroded connection or loose terminal can lead to an overheated wire and a possible fire. To illuminate the livewell in the meantime, carry a handful of Cyalume 6-inch chemical light sticks (about $0.40 per stick in bulk). It floats and casts a soft glow into the water. Blue is the preferred color for livewell lights, but any color you have on board will work in a pinch. Play Video Play Loaded: 0% Progress: 0% Remaining Time -0:00 This is a modal window.
