Hey Jim,

I've been eyeballing those myself. I bought some for the wife and was going to hijack one for the yak.

You can charge the battery in them with a battery charger if its cloudy out and it does not get a full charge.I have some solar yard lights at my house not the same brand and thats what I do to get them to full brightness.

I saw those at Wally World here in Crawfordville and never thought about that. Good idea.

I like it. I have something similar in my yard and they darn sure work.

As a "Just in case" you'd better have a battery powered light for early morning use. The law reads: "Dusk until dawn and in periods of reduced visibility."

I fish in airboat country. Airboaters own the backwaters own the backwaters around her or so they think. It is just a matter of time before a yaker is killed by one. Be seen and be safe.(and legal)

That's perfect. I don't know why I never thought of that. I've been looking for something cheap like that.

i bought one of these a while back. works really well
Even after a bad day of fishing, it was still a good idea to call in sick to work!!!
